LA Lakers vs Dallas Mavericks: NBA 2021 Prediction | Preview | Injury Update
Another clash is lined up in the NBA as Dallas Mavericks lock horns with LA Lakers at the American Airlines Center on Thursday.
LA Lakers Current Form
The Lakers would look to fight back after a befuddled performance against Utah Jazz in their last game. But Mavericks have been decent of late, and that is something that may put a lot of constraints on the Lakers' plans.
The reigning NBA Champions have been aloof from their best and are currently 5th in the Western Conference. A lot is expected from them and they would hope that things get better once they have their injured superstars back.
The LA Lakers only have a 50% win percentage in their last ten appearances and they have lost to the likes of the Celtics, Jazz, Knicks, and Heat in the past.
These losses are not just losses, for champions, it should be more about their ego now and it's high time now that they get back to their original reputation.
LA Lakers Injuries
LeBron James is still out for the Lakers. Dennis Schroder is doubtful, while Andre Drummond and Markieff Morris are still sidelined with a toe injury and ankle injury respectively.
Dallas Mavericks Current Form
The Mavericks have been in a similar situation this season. Struggling with defeats, inconsistencies, and the failure to capitalize on the advantages early on in the game, another loss would only make things worse for them.
Their April performances have been solid, with clinched wins against Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, Utah Jazz, and Wizards. In their latest encounter with the Sacramento Kings, they failed again to make their way through the line.
Dallas Mavericks Injuries
Tyrell Terry is sidelined due to personal reasons, while Maxi Kleber is out with a back problem.
