ESPN will host DAY’s matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers with tip-off set for 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the STAPLES Center in LA. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.

If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

After a month or so stretch of barely losing, the Bucks are back at it again! Milwaukee has dropped three straight games, including two to Eastern Conference opponents (Knicks, Celtics). The Bucks will look to avoid being swept in L.A. by the Lakers on Wednesday. The Bucks have been lacking front court depth with Bobby Portis and PJ Tucker sidelined. Milwaukee has major issues on defense, allowing the Clippers to shoot over 50 percent from the floor and beyond the arc in Monday’s loss.

The Lakers announced on Tuesday that C Andre Drummond would make his team debut in the starting lineup against the Bucks. Drummond signed with L.A. after agreeing to a buyout with the Cleveland Cavaliers and clearing waivers. Drummond should replace Marc Gasol in the starting lineup at center. Drummond hasn’t played in a while, so temper expectations he’ll play starters minutes in his first game back.
