Pelicans at Jazz10 p.m. ETTNT and Fox Sports New Orleans
Knicks at Warriors10 p.m. ETNBC Sports Bay Area and MSG Network

TNT will broadcast both of tonight’s national games. Starting at 7:30 p.m. ET,  reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James and the 11-4 Los Angeles Lakers travel out east to take on the reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the 9-5 Milwaukee Bucks. The Lakers have not lost a single game on the road and the Bucks have a single blemish on their homecourt so tonight’s game has some weight to it. Local broadcasts will be available on Spectrum SportsNet.

The second game of tonight’s TNT doubleheader is a Western Conference matchup that begins at 10 p.m. ET. The struggling 5-8 Pelicans head to Salt Lake City to take on the 10-4 Utah Jazz. This game is a rematch from Wednesday, where the Jazz won convincingly 118-102. The Jazz are playing some of their best basketball so far this season, as they’ve won their last 6 games. In the Big Easy, things haven’t gone as well. The Pelicans have won 1 of their last 7 games with their last victory being this past Sunday versus the Kings. Fox Sports New Orleans will be airing a local broadcast of this game.

The other 10 p.m. game will be played in the Chase Center between the 7-8 Knicks and the 5-6 Warriors. The Warriors are coming off a victorious blowout against the Spurs and even without Klay Thompson, they haven’t missed a beat. The Knicks have been hovering around .500 all-season and will be looking to leave tonight’s game at 8-8. NBC Sports Bay Area and MSG Network will broadcast the local feeds.
