LAL vs SAC Dream11: Sacramento Kings visit the La La Land as they play LeBron James and Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA 2019-20 regular season at Staples Center. Both the teams have the momentum and will fancy their chances in this game. But the Lakers are certainly walking on the level of their own at the moment, too powerful and muscular these days. The Lakers have won four times out for eh last five games, with their only defeat in that period coming against the defending champions Toronto Raptors.
That said, Sacramento also come into this game with four wins in the last five games, But Lakers’ return is acceptable considering the profile of that team, but Kings have surprised one and all in the run, especially when you consider that the Kings opened their season with five straight defeats, some very bad ones.
This is really a historical fixture, considering the number of times both these teams have faced each other. The next game will be the 432nd meeting between the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings, and the Showtime edge their opponent with 275 wins in those games, while Kings have 156 wins.
Host: Los Angeles Lakers
Visitors: Sacramento Kings
Match Timing: November 15, @09:00 AM
Venue: Staples Center
LeBron James: Still going strong, way stronger than what you would expect from a player of his age. In fact, he is very much in contention for the MVP this season. He is LeBron after all, the king. The 34-year-old is averaging 23.9 points per game and leads the whole league with 11.1 assists per game.
Anthony Davis: Lakers’ leader in terms of scoring. He is racking up 26.3 points per game and leads the team with 10.4 rebounds per game this season. He is a monster.
Buddy Hield: The 26-year-old is averaging a team-high 18.3 points per game this season.
Kyle Kuzma: He is back to full fitness now, and you can see the impact he is having from the bench.
Bogdan Bogdanovic: A very good option to have in your Dream11 team. Not only he comes cheap, but he can be very effective with his scoring.
Los Angeles Lakers:
The Showtime should welcome back Anthony Davis to the starting five against Sacramento Kings. The 26-year-old, six-time All-Star, has been suffering from a sore right shoulder this season and he himself admitted that he was playing through the pain barrier. He should be fine for this match.
Avery Bradley is listed as doubtful for Lakers’ next assignment against the Kings due to a left leg contusion. He will be evaluated before the match. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was another Lakers player who ended the game against the Warriors in some discomfort. He picked up an ankle injury in that match and is questionable for the next match.
Rajon Rondo is expected to return against the Kings after getting a rest for the game against the Warriors. The 33-year-old made his first appearance of the season against Phoenix Suns and had 5 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds in 14 minutes. In addition, Troy Daniels could miss his second consecutive game for the Lakers as he recovers from a knee injury. DeMarcus Cousins remains a long-term absentee for the Lakers.
De’Aaron Fox is expected to miss the next 3-4 weeks due to a left ankle sprain. It’s a big blow for the Kings considering his value to the team. Meanwhile, Marvin Bagley III remains a long-term injury absentee for the Kings.
Trevor Ariza lasted only four minutes during Sacramento Kings’ 107-99 win over Portland Trail Blazers. He suffered a groin injury in that match.
