The Lakers are heading into this game after a solid win in the game against the Knicks with a score of 100-92. And on the other side, the Nets suffered a117-111 at home by Philadelphia Monday afternoon in their latest contest.
Los Angeles Lakers Form
The Lakers are one of the best teams in the league this season. Moreover, it is safe to say that they are one of the main title contenders. Also, they managed to get back to winning ways at Madison Square Garden with a win over the Knicks. The Lakers are on the top spot in the Pacific Division. Additionally, the L.A team is at the top of the Western Conference with a 3.5-game edge over the Clippers.
On the offensive side of the game, the Lakers scored an average of 114 points per game which is enough for the 7th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.6 boards combined with 26.1 assists per night.
And on the defensive side of the game, the Lakers concede an average of 106.4 points per night which is the 7th defensive record.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets are not playing good this season. Moreover, they have suffered their 4th defeat in the row in the game against the 76ers in their last contest. So now, the Nets are 4th in the Atlantic Division, 10.5 games behind the Raptors for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, Brooklyn held the final playoff spot by three games over the ninth-place Pistons. Therefore, the Nets still have a good chance to take part in the postseason.

Also, they have an average of 48.5 boards per game combined with 23.6 assists per night.

The Lakers are in good form at the moment. Also, they managed to get back to winning ways in the game against Knicks as I have predicted. Now, they will aim to build upon that winning momentum and get another away win in the Big Apple. Take the Lakers in this one.
