LAL vs NYK Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

New York Knicks will be looking to end the current longest losing streak in NBA when they host another struggler Los Angeles Lakers in the regular season NBA match at Madison Square Garden, in Midtown Manhattan, New York, on Sunday night (IST).

San Antonio Spurs extended their winning streak to the season-best seven-games when they downed a stuttering New York Knicks 109-83 at AT&T Center.

Knicks are now 13-56 in the regular season and are propping up the table in the Eastern Conference. This was their 8th consecutive loss and 30th on the road.

Damyean Dotson scored a team-high 21 points in the final game of three-match road trip. The 23-year-old also made 2 steals in the match.

While rookie Center Mitchell Robinson continues to impress. The 20-year-old stretched his record to 17 games of +2 blocks.

For Los Angeles Lakers, it was a familiar result when they went down against the Detroit Pistons in the last match. LeBron James wasn’t in the team though and the Lakers looked even softer and out of ideas, losing 111-97 at Littel Caesars Arena.

With the loss, the Showtime went 31-38 in the regular season and whatever their hopes of making the playoffs, are close to the grave.

Regular Season Record-
New York Knicks:
W-13, L-56
Los Angeles Lakers:
W-31, L-38

Players to watch out for:

New York Knicks:
Emmanuel Mudiay –
The talk of the squad overhaul is picking up the pace in New York. And that’s acceptable as well as this has been a completely underwhelming season for Knicks as a whole team. A few of the talented players have left the team, while the likes of Emmanuel Mudiay are doing what they can do at the moment. The 23-year-old is averaging 14.2 points per game this season.

DeAndre Jordan – Another player who joined Knicks in the midseason is DeAndre Jordan. The 30-year-old is averaging 13.4 points per game in the last 10 matches.

Los Angeles Lakers:
LeBron James –
Though he is a doubt for this match, we are mentioning him because it’s hard to grasp who else can score the points in this match. Lakers are definitely out of the playoff picture, and it will be the first time since 2005 that the postseason will be without the King. The 34-year-old is racking up 27.3 points per game, 8.7 rebounds per game and 8 assists per game. Truly, a once in a lifetime kind of player.
Kyle Kuzma –
Though it’s a common perception that behind the Lakers struggles’ is the team’s lack of star power and a consistent performer who could back Lebron James efforts, Kyle Kuzma can claim otherwise. The 23-year-old has been a consistent performer throughout the season and is averaging 18.6 points per game.

LAL vs NYK Dream11 Fantasy Team:

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
With playoffs out of reach, Los Angeles Lakers are starting to fiddle with their starting line-up. But even then a game against New York Knicks is there for the taking. If LeBron James plays, then it should be a win for the visitors, and if not, then there is every chance that the Showtime would struggle.
Backing up a win for Lakers is a good call.
