LAL vs CHA Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for LA Lakers vs Charlotte Hornets


LAL vs CHA Dream11: The NBA Summer League provides us a rather short glimpse of what we will see months away from here when the NBA season will begin. The Summer League is a great opportunity for young players to get a mini taste of what is to come although the real deal is not an as easy ride as this. This is also an avenue for some players to earn at least a temporary contract after grinding out the professional scene for years. Anyway, in this game, the Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Charlotte Hornets.

The Lakers come into this game after losing to the Suns 84:104 despite a 19 points performance by Scotty Pippen Jr. The Lakers’ defense was highly susceptible in the last game. Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Pacers 84:06 despite a 17 points effort by Bryce McGowens. Which team will break the slump here?

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Summer League: Nightmare for fantasy lovers

For those engaged in fantasy scenarios, Summer League is rather a huge challenge as there are no fixed minutes and one player can have a huge night in a game and then get rested in the other. The main aim is to test what players are fit for a team’s roster and address their needs, as a rotation player or as someone who can ride the end of the bench and be a part of the practice regimes. For the rookies and other young players, this is a chance to get the feel of things. Therefore, this is surely the most challenging scenario for Fantasy enthusiasts.

Young talents for the teams

The Lakers drafted Max Christie this year and although his offense has been not impressive at all, his defense has been impressive, both in terms of on-the-ball and off-the-ball performances. Scotty Pippen Jr. needs some work too and overall, it is unclear how these two will fit in the Regular Season roster. The Hornets opted for size and went with 7 feet two inches Mark Williams who has some shortcomings but is mobile for his size. They also selected Bryon McGowens who has been rather impressive in his early days.
