LAL vs SAS Dream11:NBA produces a long line of top-level battles throughout its season. In this game, two historical rivals in Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs fight it out against each other. The Lakers have been struggling to piece together big wins even after having Anthony Davis and Westbrook and the team needs LeBron back asap. Meanwhile, the Spurs are in rebuilding phases and have double losses than wins, indicating their youth.

Lakes are yet to figure out their rotations. Despite having Westbrook at PG, Davis at PF, the team has struggled on both sides of the court. Bradley, Jordan, Howard, and Monk have not received clarity regarding their roles yet. Meanwhile, Carmelo Anthony despite a tough shooting night versus Minnesota has been the only consistent offensive player off the bench. On the other hand, Spurs are struggling but has young ones like Keldon Johnson, Murray, Walker, Vassell, etc. to build around

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Lakers’ 7-6 record is underwhelming because they have mostly played sub-par teams early in the season, surely they should have at least 10 wins. The Lakers score 110 Points per game but that is largely due to playing in a handful of OT games. The team has struggled big time on defense, giving away 112.3 Points every game on average, making them fourth-worst in that regard. The squad allows more than 12 offensive rebounds per game and turns the ball over a lot, giving opponents multiple opportunities.

Spurs are in rebuilding mode. Their record can be justified because the team consists of mainly young players, who are finding their feet in this league. The team struggles on the defensive end, squander around 109.2 PPG while their offense is decent, producing 109.9 PPG on a remarkable 47% shooting. Despite their record, Spurs have given many teams trouble with their feisty nature.
