LAL vs BOS Dream11 Prediction NBA Live LA Lakers vs Boston Celtics


LAL vs BOS Dream11: There is not a more classic rivalry as the one that exists between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics two teams who will meet here. In the 1980s, the two teams crossed paths as if written by destiny as Johnson, Bird, Kareem, Mchale, and many many more. The last two teams met in the 2010 NBA Finals as Gasol and Kobe lifted the title for the Lakers. However, the two teams are not the same rivals anymore and will hope they face each other soon on the big stage.

Lakers have been one of the most up-and-down teams in the league. They have not built a five-game winning streak so far this season and usually trade losses and wins as clearly indicated by their 50% win record. With the talent they have, the Lakers should have certainly won much more games.

The Celtics have a lot of talent too, a deep guard position, a strong frontline, and a wing scoring threat in Jayson Tatum. Yet, what is on the paper hasnโ€™t translated to the court, largely due to poor play during late-game situations and some underwhelming basketball. Can Boston right the shop soon or will there be some trades soon?

Host: Los Angeles Lakers

Visitors: Boston Celtics

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Lakers: Their defense is the cause of most losses
Are you a team that struggles offensively? Donโ€™t worry Doctor Lakers will cure you of offensive woes. The Lakers have allowed 115-125 points so many times that it seems like a given during most nights. With its woeful defense, Lakers figure among the bottom-five defensive teams in various metrics and it is clear that it is that end of the floor that needs a lot of fixing. Still, with Davis, LeBron, and Westbrook, youโ€™d believe the team can turn things around, but can they?

Celtics: They can be much better
With a 25-30 points per night scorer like Tatum, a 20-25 points scorer like Brown, a top-notch scorer like Schroeder, a two-way threat like Smart, and a lengthy frontline of Horford and Williams, the Celtics also should have had a better record. Yes, Brown has been injured for the most part but still, the team depth is solid and the record a bit of a mystery. Still, there is PLENTY of time to figure things out and make necessary changes, but will they be made?
