The Brooklyn Nets had a hard time keeping their big three of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving together inside the basketball court. Irving will definitely be out of this ball game because of pandemic protocols and expect Harden and Durant to wet their feet heading to the season. LaMarcus Aldridge should also play for his conditioning along with Sekou Doumbouya who aims to be part of the team’s rotation. Other players such as Paul Millsap, Blake Griffin and Joe Harris should aim to play good minutes as well. Cam Thomas and Day’Ron Shape signed a five-year deal with the Nets and they should start working as well.

The Los Angeles Lakers have retooled after failing to defend their title last year and have only retained Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Russell Westbrook has been their biggest addition in the offseason and he should use the pre-season to familiarize Frank Vogel’s system. Along with Carmelo Anthony, Wayne Ellington, DeAndre Jordan, Malik Monk and Kent Bazemore — these players should also see good minutes in this pre-season matchup. Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo are back with the Lakers but expect Vogel to try and break in the new faces of this team.
