This game features the powerhouse Spurs traveling to LA to face the struggling Lakers.
The Spurs are 8-1 in their last 9 games, while the Lakers are on a 3 game losing streak.
The Spurs have won the first 2 games of the season series, and 7 in a row overall.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs were surging heading into the All-Star break, and continued that hot streak with a big win against the reeling Clippers.
With a lack of strong play at the SF position by the Clippers, Kawhi Leonard was able to dominate LA on Friday night. He scored 21 points and dished out 6 assists.
The only issue during the game for Leonard was the fact that he finished the game with 5 fouls.
He should have another good game against the Lakers, as I don’t see Nick Young being able to slow him down. Look for Leonard to score 28 points and 7 rebounds.
LaMarcus Aldridge took his All-Star snub in stride, and had his first double-double in 3 games for San Antonio. He shot just 5-15 from the field, but did finish with 15 points and grabbed 11 boards.
Aldridge will face off against Julius Randle and should have another good performance.
Patty Mills has been a good reserve guard for San Antonio. He has scored 8 or more points in 4 straight games, and capped it off with 14 points against the Clippers.
He should do more of the same against the Lakers and get 5 assists as well.
With Chris Paul coming back from injury, Tony Parker was able to put up big numbers against LA. His 17 points were the most he has scored in 6 games.
Facing a very athletic backcourt led by D’Angelo Russell, Parker will have a tough time putting up similar numbers in this one.
LA is clearly in a rebuilding period, but appointing Magic Johnson as the new Director of BAsketball Operations will be an intriguing storyline for the rest of the season.
D’Angelo Russell continues his inconsistent play for LA, as he scored an amazing 29 points and had 6 assists against the Thunder on Friday night. Will he continue his hot play against the Spurs, it will be surprising to see him put 3 strong games in a row.
Julius Randle has been very strong on the offensive end of the floor, putting up 10+ points in 6 straight games. He also has 2 straight double doubles. The Spurs have a great front court and it will be tough for Randle to score against the length of LaMarcus Aldridge.
Randle will get double digit rebounds but won’t make much of an impact on the scoring end, expect 8 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists.
LA has had 2 straight #2 overall picks in the NBA draft, and Brandon Ingram will look to get heavy minutes as the season comes to a close. He scored 11 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and 4 assists against the Thunder.
Ingram has the ability to score if given the greenlight and his ability to shoot from the perimeter will be intriguing in this game.
