PHI vs LAL Dream11: The NBA midseason is in full flow and you can bet that some teams will make some trades soon and well, most teams are always seeking some sort of fit as they figure out in which terrain the season is going. Anyway, these trades will bring certain transformations and lineup shuffles. Let us see what moves are pulled.
In this game, the Los Angeles Lakers will clash against the Philadelphia 76ers in a Western-Eastern Conference tussle. The Sixers have done well this season and well as a team that went to the best record in the Eastern Conference standings last season. Well, this season, they have looked a playmaker and they have dependent upon Joel Embiid for most of the season.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been struggling to stitch together winning streaks and keep faltering, conceding advantage during many games due to their terrible defense. LA Lakers have some glaring issues and well, they may look at hard into the trade market. Will the loaded Lakers pull off some big moves?
Host: Philadelphia 76ers
Visitors: Los Angeles Lakers
Match Timing: 28 January, @ 06:00 AM
Venue: Wells Fargo Arena
The wing match-up between Tobias Harris and LeBron James is a classic battle as these two have gone on many duels throughout their career. Well, with the way LeBron has played, he certainly holds sway during most match-ups but Tobias has continued to be an effective option. The difficulty for the Lakers will come in terms of guarding Center Joel Embiid. They must be relieved that Anthony Davis is back because, against a player like Embiid, his size and athleticism will be more than useful. But do remember that Davis has been back after a three+ weeks absence and well, he may take some time adjusting to the NBA pace. But yes, overall, this match-up belongs to the 76ers.
At other positions, Tyrese Maxey and Russell Westbrook match-up are highly evenly matched-up because both the players are usually scoring in a similar range but yes Russell is a better playmaker and rebounder. Meanwhile, the match-up between Stanley Johnson, Avery Bradley and Furkan Korkmaz, Matias Thybulle, may slightly belong to the 76ers, especially considering the defense of Thybulle, but yes, this is not a decisive edge. To be honest, the bench match-up belongs to the Lakers with Monk, Melo, Reaves, and Horton-Tucker clash against Niang, Drummond, and Joe. Both teams are not heavily outmatching each other but yes, the fragile Lakers’ defense will have to pull up their boots to contain Joel Embiid inside, because they have matched up well with most teams but they haven’t gelled as a unit.

Joel has been a superb presence in the middle all season long and it is simple, when is playing, the 76ers have a better chance of winning.
