The Mavericks are coming off a solid win over the L.A. Clippers and tonight they face a Lakers’ team that they have beaten 7 straight times. The Lakers only have 1 win and they look to avoid starting the season 1-8 for the 2nd straight season.
In their last games the Mavericks beat the L.A. Clippers 118-108 and the Lakers lost to the Orlando Magic 101-99.
This season the Mavs are 2-2 at home and the Lakers are 1-4 on the road.
These 2 teams met earlier this season in L.A. where the Mavs beat the Lakers 103-93.
The Lakers have played 2 games without Kobe Bryant, but he will be back for tonight’s game. However, he has been far from the Black Mamba on the season averaging 15 ppg points on 31.5% shooting in his last 5 games.
The Lakers’ offense, well besides Kobe, has been decent on the season ranking 16th in the league in scoring, but their defense has been bad and they rank 26th in opponents’ points allowed.
Bryant and 3rd leading scorer Louis Williams are shooting 32% and 31.8% respectively this season.
The Lakers are pretty thin inside and the guards need to score for the Lakers to win and not only score, but shoot a decent FG%.
In their loss to the Magic the Lakers had a good shooting night almost hitting 50% of their shots and they held Orlando to only 40% shooting and they still lost. One of the main reasons was that they gave up a whopping 23 offensive boards, which they cannot let happen tonight.
The Mavs are still led by Dirk Nowitzki and he had a big game in the win over the Clippers going for 31 points and pulling down 15 boards. The Clippers let him have wide open looks from deep and he killed them and the Lakers have to keep him from lighting it up from 3-point land.
Dallas ranks 15th in the league in scoring and 21st in opponents points allowed. In the win over the Clippers they had their best shooting night of the season and if they are hot again facing a struggling Lakers’ defense this game could be a blowout.
The top 3 scorers for the Mavs are Nowitzki and the guards of Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews, so it is key that the Lakers play solid D on the perimeter.
The Lakers rank dead-last in the league in rebounding margin (-7) and they have to hit the glass tonight or they will lose. In the earlier match up this season with Dallas the Lakers were outrebounded 49-42.
