Lakers v Dallas: prediction for the NBA match

On March 18, Lakers will try to beat Dallas at home. Can the Los Angeles team achieve a success? The answer is in our prediction.

Match announcement

LA Lakers

Lakers suffered an unexpected defeat to Houston (110:114), but they had a depleted squad for this game. LeBron James and Anthony Davis had to miss the match. The King is still unavailable, while Anthony Davis might return in the upcoming game. 

Lakers need a victory in the game against Dallas. They are currently at the 10th position in the Eastern conference, but the next defeat might leave them out of the play-off zone. 

Dallas Mavericks

Dallas will also play without their key players. Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving missed recent games of the Mavericks and they are still unavailable. Tim Hardaway and JaVale McGee also might miss the upcoming game. 

Despite all these problems, Dallas secured an away victory over San Antonio (137:128) in the most recent game. Christian Wood put up a fantastic performance in that match. He scored 28 points, collected 13 rebounds and gave three assists.
