Sunday is a great day to be a sports fan in Los Angeles, with a busy schedule all day long. Not only are the Kings close to winning their first NHL playoff series since 2001, but both the Lakers and Clippers are fighting separately for the NBA Pacific Division title. To top it all off, Matt Kemp and the first-place Dodgers are in action, and the Angels look for their first series sweep of the year. Here is Sunday's sports television schedule:
11 a.m. - Dodgers at Astros (KCAL): Kemp has homered in three straight games and the Dodgers go for their third series sweep in five tries this season.
12:30 p.m. - Thunder at Lakers (ABC): The Lakers have a magic number of two to clinch the Pacific Division over the Clippers, but Kobe Bryant and the gang have to battle Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and an Oklahoma City team still fighting for the top seed in the Western Conference.
12:30 p.m. - Orioles at Angels (Fox Sports West): The Halos send Dan Haren to the hill to try to complete the sweep of Baltimore.
5 p.m. - Kings at Canucks, Game 5 (NBC Sports Network, Fox Sports West): Up 3-1 in the first round series, Jonathan Quick and the Kings look for their third road win of the series.
6:30 p.m. - Hornets at Clippers (Prime Ticket): Chris Paul and company begin Sunday a half-game behind the Lakers but could be atop the Pacific after beating Paul's old team, owners of the worst record in the conference.
