    LeBron James returns to Cleveland for the first time as an opposing player as Cleveland Cavaliers host Los Angeles Lakers in an NBA match, in Cleveland, Ohio, on Thursday morning (IST).


    Cleveland Cavaliers:

    Cleveland Cavaliers’ next game is against the Los Angeles Lakers to put it simply. But it was never going to be the match between two franchises when these two team’s name came against each other during the revealing of the fixture list. The saga is all about the homecoming of the very own son of this city, the star who made this franchise the champions of NBA in 2016 for the very first time in their history.

    For quite some time, four years to be precise, Cavaliers had the audacity to look into the eyes of the opponents with a feeling of haughtiness, exuding from the one particular aspect of their roster; it had Lebron James’ name in it. Four conference titles in as many years, four heartbreaking stories of Eastern Conference franchises like Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors who could have easily won the East had it not for James’ brilliance on a consistent basis. And now think about it that Lebron himself has come out in the media and said that he is hoping that he doesn’t get the same response he got from Cavaliers’ fans back in 2010, the last time he came to Ohio wearing different colours.

    Does he need to say this in media at all? Hasn’t he done enough for his city both as a player and as a citizen? And above all, has his stature not gone way above than getting affected from the booing of some knuckleheads in the stands who are themselves too weak to try and make efforts for their own dreams?

    Yes, LeBron is too big now, and we all agree that James will be thinking about nothing but Basketball when he steps out into the Quickens Loans Arena to face his own city.

    For the records, Cavaliers, are plunging somewhere near the bottomless chasm as they are last in the Eastern Conference and are also the worst team across both the conferences.


    Los Angeles Lakers:

    Los Angeles Lakers are now seeing the real LeBron James, a kind of player they signed with the hopes of ending their barren run of not making it into the playoffs since 2012.

    His recent performances must be giving Cavaliers’ hierarchy and their fans even more pain as the four-time NBA MVP has scored 51 and 44 points in a space of just four days. No wonder, his incredible form has seen Lakers rise up in the table, as they are now 8th in the Western Conference with the 9-7 record, and only one win away from 5th placed Oklahoma City Thunder.


    Regular Season Record-
    Cleveland Cavaliers: W-2, L-13
    Los Angeles Lakers: W-9, L-7


    Players to watch out for:

    Cleveland Cavaliers:
    Jordan Clarkson – With Kevin Love out injured, he is the main man at Cleveland these days. The 26-year-old is going for 15.4 points per game this season. He is good enough to be in your NBA fantasy team.
    Rodney Hood – The 26-year-old is scoring 12.9 points per game this season. Rodney is scoring in the double digits in most of the games in the 2018-19 regular season.


    Los Angeles Lakers:

    LeBron James – The former Cleveland Cavaliers star, yes it’s the case now, is coming into his own at Lakers with each passing game. The four-time NBA MVP is dropping 28.8 points per game and is still fresh from dismantling his former team Miami Heat with his 51 points.
    Kyle Kuzma The 23-year-old has hit a purple patch of sorts in the last few games as his average has come down in the recent weeks. However, he is expected to play as a second fiddle to the one main man in Los Angeles these days and he is doing enough actually, scoring 16.9 points per game.


    Cleveland Cavaliers:
    Injured – Cleveland Cavaliers are hit hard as far as injuries to key players are concerned. Kevin Love is, without a doubt, the biggest setback for the hosts. The 30-year-old has played just four matches for Cavaliers this season and remains sidelined through a foot injury.
    Also, Sam Dekker (Ankle Injury), and George Hill (Shoulder) will miss the action as well due to their respective health issues.
    Questionable – Meanwhile, Kyle Korver will be put through a late fitness test because of the foot injury. He remains questionable.
    Suspended – None.


    Los Angeles Lakers:
    Injured – Rajon Rondo is the most notable absentee for the hosts as the 32-year-old is suffering from a hand injury.
    Questionable – None as of now.
    Suspended – None.


    Updates: JR Smith will not be playing for the hosts as he seeks a move away from Cavaliers.


    CLE vs LAL Dream11 Teams (Probables):

    • Cleveland Cavaliers: Cedi Osman (F), Larry Nance Jr. (F), Tristan Thompson (C), Rodney Hood (G), Collin Sexton (G)
    • Los Angeles Lakers: LeBron James (F), Kyle Kuzma (F), JaVale McGee (C), Brandon Ingram (G), Lonzo Ball (G)

    • Cleveland Cavaliers: Jordan Clarkson, David Nwaba, Kyle Korver, Ante Zizic, Andrew Harrison
    • Los Angeles Lakers: Josh Hart, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Tyson Chandler, Lance Stephenson, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk


    CLE vs LAL DREAM11 Fantasy Team:



    Long before the real action starts, no doubt that emotions will be running high at Quicken Loans Arena. But everything will be just a serious business once the ball starts exchanging hands and is thrown towards the hoop.
    We are expecting a win for LeBron James’ team as Los Angeles Lakers have too much firepower for the hosts at this moment.
