DAL vs LAL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Dallas Mavericks will be looking to end their two game losing streak when they host a stuttering Los Angeles Lakers at American Airlines Center, in Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday morning (IST).
Dallas Mavericks came unstuck once again as they fell to Philadelphia 76ers last time around for their 3rd consecutive defeat.
Mavericks made a good start and were going toe to toe with the Sixers, but still post the first quarter 31-26. The 2nd quarter was the same story with Philadelphia winning it 28-25 and Dallas went into the break with an eight points deficit.
Mavericks went into a submissive zone and failed to resist the pressure as Sixers upper the ante and won the 3rd quarter 28-19.
However, the visitors didn’t give up and rallied a decent run to come within seven points of Sixers with less than three minutes to go into the match. The deficit cut to just four points and it looked as if the visitors could shock the hosts. Wesley Mathews and Luka Doncic scored the bulk of the points.
But the hosts have too much firepower and talent and held on to this win.
Los Angeles Lakers:
It was a big chance for the young generation of Los Angeles Lakers to show their true potential, somethng in which they have failed desperately in the absence of LeBron James.
The Showtime were once 4th in the Western Conference with LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma all fit and firing, against the biggest of the teams. Lakers defeared Golden State Warrios during that period which proppeled this famous franchise to 4th in the table.
But that’s a long time ago, or it feels like considering the current woes of the 16-time NBA Champions.
Since beating Warriors 127-101, Luke Walton’s men have gone 1-5 in their next six games in the absence of James. While the last game was one of the lowest points as Lakers were poor and ended up losing by 22 points against Wolves.

Dallas Mavericks: W-18, L-21

Players to watch out for:
Luka Doncic – Had a tough game against Timberwolves as he could manage only 14 points in the match. However, he is Mavericks’ best player and remains the vital cog in their wheel this season.

Los Angeles Lakers:

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
With Lakers these days, you can’t predict anything. LeBron is not with the team while Kyle Kuzma has missed the game time as well. Lakers still look a long way from performing at their full potential.
