Two squads sitting in and out of the playoff places of their respective conference are clashing today, when the Los Angeles Lakers (31-40), who have been on a free fall and have won only once in their last 10 games, are hosting the Brooklyn Nets (37-36), who on the other hand want to turn their latest victory into a streak.
Date/Time: 03-22-2019, 22:30 EDT
Spread: Los Angeles Lakers -1
Los Angeles Lakers have a 31-40 record (27-42-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the West. They have lost nine of their last ten matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Bucks with a 101-115 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by LeBron James with 27.5 ppg, adding 8 dimes and a team high 8.5 boards per game. He is followed by Kyle Kuzma with 18.5 ppg and 5.6 boards per game.
Brooklyn Nets have a 37-36 record (39-34 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 7th place of the East. In their last game they snapped a three-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Kings with a 123-121 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 20.7 ppg, adding a team high 6.9 dimes per game. He is followed by Spencer Dinwiddie with 17.4 ppg and 4.8 dimes per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Nets won at home with a 115-110 score. Lakers have a 18-16 home record, while the Nets are 16-20 on the road. Both teams are almost equal offensively, scoring 111.8 and 111.6 ppg, while Nets are better defensively, allowing 112 ppg to Lakers’ 114 ppg. Lakers have a better field goal percentage (47.3% to 44.9%), while Nets have a better 3-point percentage (35.3% to 33.1%). Lakers are better both in dimes made (25.2 to 23.9), while Nets are better in turnovers committed (14.4 to 15.2) and both teams grab exactly 46 boards per game. Vegas odds give the Lakers a -1 spread but don’t expect them to beat the adds against a team that badly needs this win in order to secure a place in the playoffs.
