The ESPN game later in the evening on Friday sees the Atlanta Hawks heading to La La Land to take on the L.A. Lakers.
The Hawks are coming off a loss and are 4-6 in their last 10 games and they sit in the 5th spot in the East. The Lakers have only won 1 of their last 10 games and they have the 2nd fewest wins in the NBA. Not the best farewell tour for Kobe Bryant.
In their last games the Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets 117-107 and the Hawks lost to the Golden State Warriors 109-105 in OT.
Oh what could have been, as in their last game the Hawks almost snapped the Warriors 42-game home winning streak losing in OT.
Atlanta had won 2 straight before the Golden State game getting over losing 5 of their last 6, which dropped them in the East.
The Hawks are led by their D, which ranks 7th in the league in opponents’ points allowed. They have 5 players that are averaging in double figures and the Hawks do not have a true star, but are a very balanced team.
The Hawks have lost their last 3 games facing teams with sub .500 records.
The Lakers have the fewest wins in the Western Conference and have the 2nd fewest home wins in the league.
I mean it is no surprise the Lakers have struggled this season with a team that ranks 27th in the league in scoring and 28th in opponents’ points allowed.
Kobe Bryant leads the Lakers in scoring and after missing 2 games with an injury he left the last game with a sore shoulder. Maybe the Lakers should go without him, as their last win came with the Black Mamba on the bench.
This season the Lakers are 7-20 at home and the Hawks are 14-16 on the road.
