The 17-time NBA winners Lakers have missed the playoffs eight times in the past ten seasons and are on course to miss out again this year. Despite having three big players on its roster (LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis), Los Angeles came to Dallas ranked 13th in the Western Conference with a negative record of 13 wins and 19 losses to celebrate the Christmas Sunday at American Airlines Center.

This game will be the first of four scheduled meetings between the two teams this season. Last season, the Mavericks won 2-1 against the Lakers but won both games when Luka Dončić was playing. In one of those wins, he had a triple-double of 34 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

Dallas: news and form

The Mavericks return from a four-game road trip (2v, 2d) and have three home games before hitting the road again on New Year’s Eve. Dallas did not approach the next confrontation in the best conditions: in Over the last eight games, Luka Dončić’s teammates got only three. With this result, the Mavericks are currently in eighth place in the Western Conference standings (17-16). However, Dallas rarely disappoints its home fans: the Mavericks have won twelve of their seventeen home games, making them the sixth best record in the West.

The Mavericks have problems on the infirmary side as several starters remain off the field: Maxi Kleber is out after hamstring surgery, Dorian Finney-Smith is battling a pulled adductor, Dwight Powell is recovering from a problem in the thigh, finally, a sprained elbow will take Josh Green off the floor.

Mavericks: players to watch

Author of a double-double Friday night in Houston by scoring 50 points, grabbing 8 rebounds and making 10 assists, Luka Dončić will once again be the Mavericks’ main asset against the Lakers. In good form, he had a double-double on Wednesday in Minnesota with 25 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists. This will come as no surprise to anyone, but the Slovenian is still one to watch closely this Sunday night.

Los Angeles: news and appearances

This season again, the Lakers won’t go far and shouldn’t even make the playoffs, not even in the current state. They were crippled by injuries, including that of Anthony Davis, who was injured in his right leg. Russell Westbrook and LeBron James seem to be struggling day by day with foot and ankle issues, respectively.

Now, the Lakers are on a three-game losing streak against Phoenix (104-130), Sacramento (120-134), and against Charlotte (130-134), one of the worst teams this season. The Californians have a big problem on defense and will need to score less than 130 points against Dallas if they want to stop the bleeding. In Texas, the Lakers will begin a five-game road trip that will stretch through 2023 and take place in the Southeast Division as the Lakers make successive stops in Orlando, Miami, Atlanta and Charlotte. This trip is something to worry about for his fans, because the Lakers often have problems away: only five wins in 16, making it the fourth worst away team in the West.

Lakers: players to watch

Russell Westbrook was tough and thrived as the team’s sixth man. But his 27.1% three-point shooting success helps the Lakers become the worst scorers in the NBA. They are the only team in the league averaging fewer than 10 three-pointers per game (9.9). Still unsure for this match, his presence could boost his entire team.

Dallas is the clear favorite in this game and should win. First of all, Los Angeles has not played the best way in recent games and has scored a total of 398 points in their last three games (133 average per game), which is a lot. On the one hand, the Lakers have won only 5 of 16 away games while the Mavericks have won 12 of 17 at home.

The last 5 games of the Lakers have offered 244.4 points on average while the Mavericks have offered “only” 208.4 per game. We believe that with an in-form Luka Dončić and a crisp Los Angeles defence, it is possible to see at least 226 scores in this encounter.
