Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers can finally feel good about themselves. The team has won three games in a row, and most recently beat the San Antonio Spurs, 93-81. The Lakers shot 41 percent from the floor and 40 percent from three-point land in the win.
The Lakers were led by Brandon Ingram. The talented second year guard finished the game with 26 points on 11 of 21 shooting from the field. Lonzo Ball also showed up for Los Angeles. He finished the game with 18 points, 10 assists and six rebounds.
Aside from their win against the Spurs, the Lakers beat the Kings and Hawks at home. Nothing to go running home about. This game will mark the start of a road trip for Los Angeles. The Lakers are terrible on the road. They are 5-13 on the road this year.
Defensively, The Lakers are one of the worst in the NBA. The team is allowing 110 points per game this year. Good enough for 27th in the league. Their last two games, they held their opponents (Spurs,Kings) to 86 points or less.
If the Lakers are going to keep this game close on the road, they must play team defense like they have the last two games.
The Dallas Mavericks are playing below their standards this year. The team is 15-28 this season, but have won two in a row. The Mavericks beat Charlotte Hornets 115-111. Dallas shot 47 percent from the floor, and 41 percent from three-point land in the win. The Mavericks were lucky to get the win, they were out rebounded, 59-47.
The Mavericks are led by Harrison Barnes in scoring this year. He is averaging 18.8 points per game this season. Rookie sensation Dennis Smith Jr. has been doing his part in his first season, averaing 14 points per game this year.
If Barnes and Smith get going early against the Lakers, the Maveicks offense will be free-flowing through out the game.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Mavericks are allowing 104 points per game this year. Ranking them 12th in points allowed this season. Expect the Dallas home crowd to be a factor in this game.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Lakers are not a good team. They are especially bad on the road, but the way they have been playing lately, Los Angeles could be taken seroius against Dallas. Kyle Kuzma will need a good game for that to happen.
The Mavericks are not much to brag about at home, going 9-14 at the American Airlines Center. Dallas has won four straight against the Lakers. Dallas is not as talented as Los Angeles this year.
