Los Angeles Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers – NBA: Los Lakers have the objective of developing players
like Lonzo Ball, Kuzma and Ingram, as well as trying to convince big-name players to come to the city next season.
Los Angeles Lakers
At home: 16-15
Which means, winning games is not really their goal. The most important for them this season is developing these young players and we can clearly see that they all have potential to be good players, especially Ingram.
This is a team that plays a free style of basketball on court, very offensive and sharing the ball a lot, but defensively, they are ridiculous.
The team is being a surprise in my opinion, since they’ve been getting good results and have been developing their players, which is what they wanted to do this year.
On the road: 16-16
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been having ups & downs. They started off the season very poorly, then they shined but lately they have been miserable once again.
The team’s success has been the leader LeBron James, but him alone wasn’t enough, and so the Cavaliers were the franchise that made the most moves on the trade deadline, making a lot of trades and good trades in my opinion.
They are now better but have no chance on the fight for the title, since the team will still need some time until the new pieces start fitting in well on the team.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
LeBron’s teams rarely lose 2 games in a row and I believe he will want to give a response here with the team, after that loss against the Clippers.
I think this will be a very open game and with a lot of points, but tonight I rely more on LeBron’s ease to score points against the Lakers’ defence than the opposite, which means I expect the Cavaliers to get the victory here.
