LAL vs DET Dream11: Season is still not at the halfway stage, so there's plenty of time for every team, or at least for the teams with a manageable deficit, to make up for the lost ground. Detroit Pistons are amongst a plethora of teams dangling outside the playoff positions, but with a deficit that can be bridged.
That said, Pistons need a bit of consistency, more wins than their rivals. At some point, the earlier the better, they must start beating the big teams with a better record than them or currently lying above them on the table.
Los Angeles Lakers are certainly a team with a big profile. They pose the biggest of the threat for any team, a sort of measure stick for the teams looking for improvement on their results. The Showtime are leading the charge in the Western Conference with a 28-7 record.
