Detroit Pistons vs Los Angeles Lakers – NBA – This Monday night, the Detroit Pistons take on the Los Angeles Lakers in another NBA game
For the Pistons, they are still fighting for a spot in the play-offs, although it is an almost “impossible” task.
The Lakers don’t have much to play for on this final stretch of the regular season.
The Pistons are trying to react on this final stretch and the team, after a long negative streak, is once again presenting the same basketball that allowed them to dream about reaching the play-offs.
However, their presence on the play-offs is now very unlikely since they are far from the play-off spots and there aren’t many games left.
That ends up being a disappointment for their fans that believed they would reach the play-offs after a very good start to the regular season.
That way, the Pistons are still in 9th place of their conference with a record of 33 wins and 40 losses.
The Lakers weren’t making great campaign in the NBA. However, on the last couple of games, they have been playing very pleasant basketball and managing to get great victories.
This is a team that has made low investments heading into this season, having a team basically formed by young athletes, such as Lonzo Ball, Ingram, Kuzma and Randle,
who have all been playing at a great level, as well as their recent signing Isaiah Thomas, that came to strengthen their roster.
The Lakers currently have a 32-40 record and that way sit in 11th place of the Western Conference.
Detroit Pistons vs Los Angeles Lakers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams are coming off wins against opponents that are in terrible moments of form.
The Pistons have beaten the Bulls by 117-95 playing at home while the Lakers have beaten the Grizzlies by 100-93 while playing on the road.
Tonight, I expect a very open game, with both teams having the ability to get the win, since they both have very good rosters.
The Pistons have more experienced players while the Lakers have youngsters with a good future perspective.
And here I believe more on a victory for the Pistons that, besides playing at home, is on a moment of recovery, showcasing cool basketball to watch,
and they should step on court more motivated, despite only having a slight chance of going to the play-offs.
