What about the Los Angeles Lakers?
This Tuesday a game will be played between two historic NBA teams, we are talking about the game between the Boston Celtics who will visit Los Angeles to face the Lakers.
The historic Los Angeles team has not had a very good season. They come to this game after defeating the Detroit Pistons team by a score of 124-117, however, in their last 5 games, they have only been able to win 2 of them and against rivals who have not given much this season, so many wonder if the Lakers are prepared to face demanding opponents. Currently the Los Angeles team is located in eleventh position in the Western Conference with a negative record of 11-15 and a PCT of .426, being one of the 10 worst teams of the season. Its star players like Anthony Davis and Lebron James are doubtful for this game, a situation to take into account since both players were an important part of the past victory against the Pistons.
While the Boston Celtics arrive as the best team this season in the NBA, with an eye on the title that was denied to them last season. The Celtics, however, come from losing their last two games in a row, one against the Golden State Warriors and the last one against the Los Angeles Clippers. Despite this, they have a very good record, since of their last 10 games they have only been defeated in 3 of them. A very important point to take into account is the performance of the Celtics playing as visitors, where out of 15 games as a visitor they have only lost 5 of them and they get to play against a team that has not been very strong at home. Without a doubt, the season that Jayson Tatum is going through has been reflected in the team’s results, where they have a positive record of 21-7 and a PCT of .750, this being the best record so far this season. The Celtics are first in the Eastern Conference.
According to ESPN Analytics data, the clear favorite to win this game is the Celtics, who have a 71.2 probability of victory, against only 28.8% for the Lakers team.
