This Friday night continues the 22-23 NBA season with a showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.
The Lakers will be looking to pick up their fourth straight win after defeating the Miami Heat 112-109 while the Hawks will be looking to keep the momentum going from their most recent 120-117 win over Sacramento.
The Lakers come into this game after a win against the Miami Heat in which they were able to win without LeBron James, thanks to Dennis Schroder taking the lead with his 32 points for the win, Thomas Bryant contributing 9 rebounds and Russell Westbrook dishing out 9 assists.
The Lakers are aware that they need LeBron back so everyone is doing their part, let’s hope we can see him play this Friday.
Atlanta is coming off a win over Sacramento where they were finally able to end their streak of four consecutive losses. The offense was led by John Collins and his 22 points and 12 rebounds and Trae Young dished out 6 assists. Atlanta managed to make more than 50% of their shots from the field but despite the win they had a poor performance in turnovers, something that the Lakers know how to take advantage of.
The Hawks are averaging 112 points per 100 possessions while the defense is allowing 113 per 100 possessions, they will need to take advantage of the momentum from their win over the Kings to be able to match up with the Lakers.
I’ll be very honest with you, the Lakers seem to have it clear in their minds what it takes to win and if LeBron comes back, the Hawks are going to have a very tough game. So I’m going with the Lakers to cover the score.
