The Dallas Mavericks head to Los Angeles to face the Lakers on Oct. 31, and here is how fans can watch Luka Doncic face off against LeBron James.

The Dallas Mavericks wrap up their current road trip on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.  The Mavs have lost four straight games and are winless in four road contests on the young season.

The Lakers were the talk of the offseason after adding LeBron James, but they are struggling early on as well.  They have lost two straight.  The Lakers have two wins in their first seven games.  Injuries and suspensions have hampered them, though.

Here is how to watch tonight as the Dallas Mavericks face off against the Lakers in Los Angeles on Oct. 31.

Wednesday’s game inside the Staples Center begins at 10:30 p.m. ET or 9:30 local time in Dallas.

Storyline to follow- Luka Doncic against LeBron

Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic has been looking forward to tonight’s game for a long time.  He has stated that LeBron is the player he was looking forward to playing this season.  Expect Doncic to have a little extra energy against his “idol”.

The two players likely only matchup part of the time on Wednesday.  The Mavs will want Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews guarding LeBron.  The Lakers will try to put James on Doncic when Dallas has the ball, though.

It will be the rookie’s first test against one of the greats, and that alone should have fans excited.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks face off against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 31.  Both teams are searching for a win early this season.  The Lakers are frustrated with just two wins in seven games.  The Mavs are not excited to be sharing that record but have seen improvements early this season.

Guarding DeAndre Jordan figures to be a challenge for LA this evening.  The Lakers have JaVale McGee starting at center but lack another traditional big man.  McGee figures to only play between 20 and 26 minutes tonight meaning the Lakers will need to find someone else who can slow down Jordan for a stretch, or DeAndre could be their Halloween nightmare.
