IND vs LAL Dream11: The Los Angeles Lakers are currently touring the East and will play the fourth game of the five-game road trip against Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Wednesday morning. The Showtime arrive in this game looking to extend its seven-game winning streak, last beating Atlanta Hawks 96-101. Frank Vogel's men were not at their best in that five-point win, but nobody is complaining as the Lakers continue to roll over teams and now sit on the cusp of breaking the NBA record in away games.
That win over the Hawks was Lakers' 14th consecutive away win this season, and need only three more to break the record of 16 away wins. LeBron James had another monster game against the Hawks as he dropped his 3rd straight triple-double.
Indiana Pacers are doing fairly well despite playing without superstar Victor Oladipo who has been out since January due to a knee injury. The Pacers are on a three-game winning run, but the matchup against the Lakers will be the biggest test for them during that run.
