(8-6) Los Angeles Lakers vs. Orlando Magic (7-8)
It’s a nice slate of games on Saturday across the NBA. In this game the Los Angeles Lakers make the trip to the Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic.
The home team has won the last ten games played between the two teams.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers got off to a slow start to the season but they seem to have it figured out now and come into this game having won four games in a row and six of their last seven games.
A big difference as of late is the defense is playing much better. In two of their last three games they have given up 106 points or less.
For the Lakers all season the offense has been really good, but the defense has really struggled giving up 115 points per game.
It’s known that this team is going to have no issue scoring in this game, but the question is will the defense be able to step up.
If the defense struggles in this game that is what will keep the Magic in this game. If the defense slows down the Magic they will have no issue in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Orlando Magic who have had an up and down season but come into this game one game under .500.
They are coming off maybe their biggest win of the season. They fell behind big against the Philadelphia 76ers but a late comeback and some good defense late was the difference as they came out ahead 111-106.
For the Magic they are a decent defensive team giving up 108 points per game but the offense has struggled to average 104 points per game.
A big issue has been they are shooting only 44.4 percent from the field, and only 34.6 percent from the three point line.
In this game the offense needs to get out to a fast start and attack the Lakers bad defense. If the offense struggles they won’t have any chance to come out with a victory.
