The two marquee events of Sunday's television schedule will conflict, as they only start 30 minutes apart. The Los Angeles Lakers travel to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder in a possible playoff preview in a Sunday matinee on ABC, and the start of spring training starts shortly thereafter. The Angels and Dodgers meet for the second day in a row, but this time the game will be televised, the first spring game on TV for both teams.â†µ
Here are the details of today's sports television schedule:â†µ
11:30 a.m. PST - Lakers at Thunder (ABC): Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are the biggest names, but the game might come down to which one of the other All-Stars will shine: Pau Gasol or Russell Westbrook. Oklahoma City traded for Kendrick Perkins in their flurry of moves on Thursday, but the former Celtic center is out with a left knee injury.â†µ
12 p.m. PST - Angels at Dodgers (Prime Ticket, MLB Network): Sure, these games don't count, but it's baseball, damn it, and it has been a long four months since we got to watch either the Dodgers or Angels. This game from Camelback Ranch in Glendale will be broadcast by the Dodger crew. The game will be replayed on Prime Ticket at 8 p.m.â†µ
5 p.m. PST - Avalanche at Ducks (Prime Ticket): Anaheim tries to snap a five-game skid as they host Colorado, who is in a slump of their own, at 1-11-1 in their last 13 games.
