ESPN will offer a unique second screen experience this Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET streaming live on the ESPN App and airing on ESPNEWS as the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors and Kevin Durant host the Los Angeles Lakers and Lonzo Ball on ESPN. The ESPN App and ESPNEWS will air the game with a non-traditional camera view of the action and include insight and analysis from various ESPN NBA commentators.
Host and NBA sideline reporter Cassidy Hubbarth will lead an ongoing conversation with analyst Jalen Rose, NBA Insider and reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, front office expert Bobby Marks, sneaker expert Nick DePaula and NBA Draft expert Mike Schmitz. (There is a rendering of what the second screen offering will look like above). The Hubbarth-led team will also periodically kick to the NBA Countdown team – host Michelle Beadle, analysts Paul Pierce and Chauncey Billups– from ESPN’s Los Angeles Production Center for insight. Hubbarth will also kick to the ESPN game commentators Dave Pasch, analyst Doris Burke and reporter Israel Gutierrez at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. for further discussion.
In addition, ESPN’s Stats & Info team will regularly provide updates for various on-screen graphics throughout the game.
