Los Angeles Lakers will play against the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA. The game is on Tuesday, October 22, at 10:30 PM ET and will be played in Los Angeles, California at Staples Center.
Los Angeles Lakers will be favorites to win the title this season because they have LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Kyle Kuzma will miss the start of the season because of a foot injury and the Laker’s coach doesn’t know when he will be available to play. The main support will have to come from Danny Green and Dwight Howard who will replace the injured DeMarcus Cousins. In the preseason L.A. Lakers played only with Warriors 4 times and Nets 2 times. The matches against Brooklyn Nets were on China and was not aired on TV because of the big scandal with Rockets GM tweet in which he supports the protests in Hong Kong. Apart from that, the team from New York won both matches against Lakers in Asia. At home, Los Angeles Lakers beat Golden State 3 times and lost once.
Los Angeles Clippers are the biggest favorite for the title and that’s because of Kawhi Leonard who won last year’s final’s MVP against Warriors and lead Toronto Raptors to their first-ever championship. Kawhi is not the only star that signs with L.A. Clippers this summer – Paul George also join the team from Oklahoma City Thunder. Big things are expected from this duo but George will miss the start of the season because he is still recovering. In the preseason Los Angeles Clippers lost from Rockets, Nuggets and in their last game from Mavericks and win against Shanghai Sharks and Melbourne United.
Both teams will want to start the season with a victory against their biggest rival for the title and in this match, I will go with Lakers only because their duo will be playing and for Clippers, Paul George will be unavailable in this match.
