Is Gary Trent Jr. destined for a big night?

TNT will host Thursday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat with tip off set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.

If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT 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.

The Los Angeles Lakers are in serious trouble in the West. L.A. sits in the 5-hole at 32-19, just 1.5 games up on the Portland Trail Blazers and 3.5 games on the Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers desperately need either Anthony Davis or LeBron James to return. The earliest James could return would be the end of the month. AD is being listed on the injury report, which is a good sign. It appears he’s closer to returning.

The Miami Heat have struggled to find consistency this season. After losing six games in a row, the Heat had ripped off four wins in a row before a bad loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Injuries have been the issue all season long, but Miami is close to full strength. Tyler Herro is probable to play in the 2020 NBA Finals rematch on Thursday while dealing with a sore foot.
