The Lakers have gotten off to another poor start to the season and cannot afford to dig themselves a deeper hole as they get set to take on Miami inside American Airlines Arena on Tuesday.
Los Angeles is just 1-5 on the season and continues to struggle on both sides of the ball as they fell to New York on Sunday 99-95 inside MSG.
Miami has been using their defense to grab wins as they come in off a solid performance against the Raptors that saw them allow just 76 points in a win.
The Lakers built a solid foundation this off season around Kobe Bryant as it looked like the Lakers maybe had some potential to really be a sleeper.
That hasn’t been the case through the first 6 games as they sit just 1-5 and are really struggling both offensively and defensively.
Los Angeles is averaging 104.3 points per game, but struggled last game as they put up just 95 points against a bad Knicks team. Defensively, they continue to be a mess. Los Angeles is allowing 110.7 points against, which will realistically not get them many wins if they let up that many points on a consistent basis.
Things will be interesting in terms of Kobe’s minutes come Tuesday as the Lakers head to Orlando Wednesday for a back-to-back. With Bryant’s health a concern, it was almost a lock he’d sit out one of the 2 games.
However, Bryant has stressed that this has a real potential to be his last season and wants to play in both. Head coach Byron Scott said he’ll let the situation play out and see how Bryant feels.
The Heat turned in one of their best defensive performances of the season as they shut down the Raptors and held them to just 76 points on 39.4 percent shooting as they routed them 96-76 Sunday.
Hassan Whiteside continues to make quite the name for himself as he had 6 more blocked shots in the win over Toronto. The Heat defender has at least 4 blocks in the last 4 games.
Whiteside also continues to turn it up offensively as he turned in a 20 point, 11 rebound performance in the win over Toronto. He’s shooting 64% from the field and has at least 10 rebounds in 4 of the last 5 Heat contests.
Whiteside’s presence offers Chris Bosh a solid opportunity to get his jumper game going as Bosh can move more freely offensively. Bosh went 4 of 7 from 3 point range on Sunday, which he continues to get open looks from.
Miami has dominated the head-to-head with LA as they’ve won 6 straight against them.

Free NBA Prediction:
Los Angeles is reeling right now, but Kobe Bryant still wants this. They have the talent to compete and grabbing 11.5 points here is probably the best move. Expect LA to keep it close throughout.

This should be a lower scoring affair as both teams like to work the ball around. That is just what LA backers would like to see as the lower scoring games play in favor of the Lakers.
