How to watch LeBron James tonight: Lakers vs. Cavaliers tip time, channel, live stream for Tuesday NBA game

The King is back in The Land.

On Tuesday, LeBron James makes his annual trip to Ohio, the place he calls home and called home for most of his NBA career.

James has a history of playing well against his former team. Through 19 career matchups with the Cavaliers, he’s averaging 29.4 points on a scorching 55.3 percent shooting. It’s his highest-scoring average and shooting percentage against any opponent.

James’ return won’t be the only reason to tune in. Following a slow start to the season, the Lakers are making their way back up the Western Conference standings, fueled by Anthony Davis playing some of the best basketball of his career. The Cavaliers are coming off of a loss to the Knicks, but their 15-9 record has them behind only the Celtics and Bucks in the Eastern Conference standings.
