Monday night’s NBA slate has two tank-tastic contests on the agenda: Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets, and Los Angeles Lakers vs. Atlanta Hawks.
As far as the latter goes, Los Angeles is a clear lottery squad, but Atlanta enters the game as the second-worst team in the league behind only the Phoenix Suns.
Atlanta is half a game ahead of Phoenix and a 2.5-point underdog against the Lakers.
Los Angeles Lakers
So far this season, the Lakers are 10th in points per game. They’re scoring 107.6 points per contest.
As far as offensive efficiency goes, the Lakers take a significant dip in the rankings. They’re posting just 103.2 points per 100 possessions, which is only good enough for 25th in the league.
Clearly, Los Angeles is getting its points as a result of its league-leading pace and not its ability to put the ball in the basket effectively.

As far as defensive efficiency goes, Los Angeles is 12th. The team gives up 105.6 points per 100 possessions to opponents.
The Hawks this season rank 23rd in points per game. They’re scoring an average of 103.5 points a night.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Although the Lakers would be smart to lose just about every game during the final six weeks of the season, building a losing culture can do serious damage to a young locker room—especially one that probably already feels like management is planning a potential roster overhaul in free agency this (or the following) summer.
