NBA 2020-21: LA Lakers vs Dallas Mavericks Match Preview
Match Preview – LA Lakers
The Lakers play their second game at home court as well. While they never led their last game against the Clippers, they will have another tough match against Rick Carlisle’s Dallas Mavericks.
LeBron James and AD combined to score 40 points for the Lakers last time out but it just was not enough.
Although, the Lakers fans will be happy after seeing performances from their new additions Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell, who both secured a double-double.
Match Preview – Dallas Mavericks
The Dallas Mavericks have an MVP contender in Luka Doncic. He has been superb in the NBA Preseason as well, performing well consistently.
After their last match with the Suns, the Mavs will be looking to bounce back with a win. Although, this will be a tougher matchup than the Suns.
The Mavericks only shot 24.3% from the 3-point line. They also gave away the ball 11 times against the Suns. With a much more physical battle against players like LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Mavs will need to improve their defense.
