Lakers Vs. Thunder: NBA On ABC Game Time, TV Info And More

The Los Angeles Lakers have just two games remaining in their regular season, including Sunday's home finale against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Staples Center. Kobe Bryant returned to the Lakers Friday night in San Antonio, but the Lakers were handled pretty easily by the Spurs 121-97. The Lakers look to bounce back on Sunday, and here are the relevant details of their Western Conference showdown.

Records: Lakers (40-24); Thunder (46-17)

Location: Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles

Time: 12:30 p.m. PDT

TV: ABC, with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy calling their second straight Lakers game.

Home vs. Road: The Lakers are 25-7 at home this season, while the Thunder are 21-11 on the road.

Going Streaking: Oklahoma City has won both battles with the Lakers so far this season, and the Thunder have won three straight games against the Lakers dating back to last season.

Playoff Positioning: The Lakers are a half-game ahead of the Clippers for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, while the Thunder are a hlaf-game behind San Antonio for the No. 1 seed. If the Thunder and Lakers end up No. 1 and No. 4 (more possible with a Thunder win Sunday) or No. 2 and No. 3 seeds (more possible with a Lakers win Sunday), these two could meet in the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Old Friend Alert: 37-year old Derek Fisher, who was traded by the Lakers to Houston on March 15, has averaged 4.3 points and 19.9 minutes per game in for Oklahoma City in 17 contests, shooting just 30.3% from the field, including 31.0% from three-point range.
