How to watch the Nuggets vs Lakers live stream: Is it free?

The Los Angeles Lakers (27-25) return home to Arena after a long trip out east. They’re waiting for them: the defending champs, the Denver Nuggets (35-16). Tonight is a special night where the Lakers will play with a heavy heart as the organization unveils the statue of Kobe Bryant at the arena. With a game on the day of a trade deadline and All-Star break looming, sometimes games during the week come off sluggish and phoned in. The atmosphere should be electric due to the statue ceremony and ignite the atmosphere for two Western Conference titans to square off on the court.

The game will be televised on TNT at 10:00 p.m. ET. Here is all you need to know about getting a live stream of it to watch online.
