NBA Regular Season
Venue – Staples Center, Los Angeles
LAL vs SAS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Los Angeles Lakers host San Antonio Spurs in an NBA match at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, on Tuesday.
Los Angeles Lakers:
Los Angeles Lakers have lost the opening two games. The season opener 128-119 away against Portland Trail Blazers, and the 2nd, 115-124 against Houston Rockets which was also LeBron James’ home debut.
The game at the Staples Center was anything but a normal matchup between the team eyeing the early momentum for the season ahead. This was the encounter which pitted Rajon Rondo against Chris Paul. A rivalry which may have been waiting for the king to arrive in Los Angeles. Yes, it started in 2009 when Rajon requested reporters not ask anything about Chris Paul now, tomorrow, or any other time. But the superiority of Rockets and the struggles of Lakers meant Rondo may not have got the required fuel to instigate against the CP3.
But James is in the town and Lakers are expected to make the playoffs at least. This game, however, ended in a defeat for the home side.
San Antonio Spurs:
San Antonio Spurs opened their season with a 112-108 win over Minnesota Timberwolves, while the 2nd game ended in a 121-108 defeat against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Gregg Popovich’s team started poorly as Blazers controlled the proceedings for almost the entirety of the game, going as much as 20 points ahead in the fourth quarter. Spurs are still trying to find their best formula as new players have arrived while their talisman Kawhi Leonard had left for the pastures new.
DeMar DeRozan finished with 28 points and nine assists in a good performance that should give Popovich some encouragement heading into the long season.
Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Lakers: W-0, L-2
San Antonio Spurs: W-1, L-1
