Lakers vs Sixers, Bucks & Clippers!! Lakers Nonsense Preview!!
Lakers will play Sixers, Bucks and Clippers this week and before anybody asks the answer is “No” the Lakers have not beaten any of this teams. Playing any of this teams on a typical week will be a challenge in it itself, playing all 3 in the same week will be a real challenge for the Lakers. LeBron James and Anthony Davis both missed games last week which cannot be the case this week. The Lakers’ will have to be at the top of their game. Let’s talk some Lakers Nonsense.
This game will probably the easiest game for the Lakers due to the Sixers lack of personnel in Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Josh Richardson. The Lakers’ will benefit from home advantage with their record 21-7 at home while the Sixers are 9-22 away. The Sixers will need Shake Milton to have another career night to give them a chance. Realistically that might be too much to ask for a guy who has been averaging 8.8 Ppg this season, but hey if there is time to step up, the time is now.
The Sixers are 37-24 coming off a loss against the Clippers. The Sixers are in the middle of a rocky season that began with chemistry issues assumptions and now just injury filled. Still the Sixers were looked as a contender in the East and with a playoff spot secured, the Sixers could be willing to just tread water till their stars return. Tobias Harris and Al Horford are the go-to guy for the Sixers but they’ll need perfect games.
The Lakers’ missed out on sweeping the Grizzlies to put a 2nd beat down in less than a week on the Pelicans. The Lakers should have both Anthony Davis and LeBron James on the floor for all 3 games and fired up to get some revenge.
Aside from the Lakers’ main personnel, this would also be a very important week for Markieff Morris playing his 5th game for the Lakers. Morris has been averaging 6.8 Ppg on 38.5 3P% shooting and offering some well needed toughness for the Lakers. Personally, I am still hopeful for Kyle Kuzma and Morris to find success when they are both on the floor without the starters.
Predictions: Lakers win and split the season series against the Sixers. The Lakers will keep on soaring while the Sixers will keep rolling down.
It should be a fun week for the Lakers.
