Nets v Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers will be visiting the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. The Brooklyn Nets are on their longest winning streak in three and a half years and they will be coming into this game looking for their sixth consecutive victory.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been in an impressive form, winning seven of their previous ten games. They will be coming into this game with the Nets, looking to bounce back after failing to come out victorious against the Washington Wizards in a 128-110 loss during the weekend. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the Lakers in scoring 25 points and 5 assists off the bench. Kyle Kuzma further added 20 points while LeBron James had a tally of 13 points.
On the other hand, the Brooklyn Nets didn’t exactly look impressive during the start of the season. They were delayed in eight of their games but as of now, they’re suddenly aiming for a season-high straight conquest after blowing past the Atlanta Hawks in a 144-127 home win on Sunday. D’Angelo Russell led the Nets with 32 points and 7 assists. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 18 points while both Jared Dudley and Joe Harris scored 16 points each.
The Nets have suddenly become one of the hottest teams to watch out for in the NBA and will be full of confidence as they welcome the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. These two teams have yet to meet this season and their battle will surely be packed with anticipation. The Lakers may have faced a few setbacks this season but they are in quite a solid form lately. They will surely be eager to get back on the court after succumbing to a loss against the Wizards while also looking forward to end the Nets’ straight wins.
Hawks v Wizards
Two of the coldest teams in the NBA league will meet on Wednesday as the Washington Wizards travel to the Philips Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks will once again welcome the Wizards in their home turf for the second time in a two-week period. The Hawks are currently at the bottom of the standings for the NBA Eastern Conference with 6 wins and 23 losses, while the Wizards are on the 11th place at the same table.
The Atlanta Hawks will be coming into this game fresh off the three-game road trip they failed to come out victorious in, the most recent was during their 144-127 game to Brooklyn over the weekend. The Hawks lost seven of their previous eight games. The Wizards aren’t any better in form thought, but they managed to come out victorious in their game against Los Angeles Lakers. They saw their four-game losing streak come to an end when they beat the Lakers in a 128-110 match.
The Washing Wizards will be looking for a spark of consistency after splitting in their previous eight games this season. The last time these two sides met, the Wizards defeated the Hawks in a 131-117 game last December 5 at the Hawks’ home turf. The Wizards managed to come out successful even without John Wall.
The Atlanta Hawks could use a victory on Wednesday after losing seven of their previous eight games this season. Their most consistent player as of now has been forward John Collins who saw his streak of doubles-doubles end at six during the weekend. In this match, the Wizards are expected to be the favourite since they won five of their previous seven meetings against the Hawks.
Nuggets v Mavericks
The Dallas Mavericks will be put to test as they face the Denver Nuggets in a heated NBA action. The Mavericks will be travelling to Denver on Wednesday to take on the Nuggets in what is one of the most exciting clashes in the NBA league.
The Nuggets are currently at the top spot in the NBA Western Conference with 20 wins and 9 losses. The Mavericks, on the other hand, are currently on the 8th spot at the same table with a record of 15 wins and 13 losses this season. The Mavs will be coming into this game looking for consistency after splitting their previous six games and losing four of their last five away games. Their star rookie Luka Doncic is expected to once again dominate Wednesday’s game with an average record of 18.2 points and 6 rebounds.
On the other hand, the Denver Nuggets will be aiming to keep their fortune rolling after bagging several victories this season. They are currently among the hottest teams in the NBA league right now and are finally showing their potential, outscoring teams by at least 12 points at home this term. The Nugget are slowly but surely climbing up the ladder and they finally reached the top. It’s up to them if they will remain consistent throughout the entire season.
