Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers enter this evening’s contest sporting a 21-19 record. It’s been an up and down season for LA so far and right now they’re in a pretty big low. In addition to their current 3 game losing streak, the club has posted a 1-5 record in their last 6 matchups. By the looks of it, the NBA betting online odds are banking on the Lakers extending that losing streak this evening. All in all most of Los Angeles’ recent woes can be attributed to the fact that James is resting a groin injury. In his absence, the Lakers have been unable to find anyone to pick up the slack. Playing on the road this evening, it’s more than likely that the Lakers come up short.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (27.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 7.1 apg), Kyle Kuzma (18.3 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Brandon Ingram (16.1 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 2.4 apg).
The Mavs step into tonight’s Western Conference matchup flashing a disappointing 18-21 record. Naturally, this places Dallas near the bottom of the conference, at the No. 13 spot to be exact. Notwithstanding that ranking, there’s still plenty of time left in the season for the franchise to turn things around. So what chance do they have of beating the Lakers at home tonight? Well the Mavs come in with a better defense than Los Angeles. And since the Lakers will be without their top scorer, we can fully expect that defense to win this game for Dallas.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (19.4 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 4.9 apg), Harrison Barnes (18.2 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 1.1 apg), and Wesley Matthews (14.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.2 apg).
