In one of the matches of the regular NBA championship, the basketball players of LA Lakers and Boston Celtics will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our portal gives a forecast for this match.
Los Angeles Lakers
Frank Vogel's team continues to pursue the leading six in the Western Conference. The team has been gaining momentum for a long time, however, even now the club's game can hardly be called ideal. After two consecutive wins, the Lakers lost to the Clippers in the Los Angeles derby with a score of 115:119. The meeting was held in an equal fight, and Davis and LeBron scored 60 points, but even this result was not enough.
The Celts can't get a foothold in the playoff zone in any way. The team shows a lot of marriage in the game, although this is not surprising, since the club changed its head coach in the off-season. Udoka came with his own philosophy, which can hardly be called successful. Boston is approaching the confrontation with the Lakers in a good mood, because the last meeting against Portland ended with a victory with a score of 145:117.
Statistics and figures:
- The Lakers are the favorite of the meeting;
- LA has 3 wins in 5 matches;
- Boston has won three times in 5 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 130:108 in favor of LA.
Most likely, the Lakers will be able to win this meeting. Our bet in this case will be in favor of the favorite. I don't think Boston in its current form will be able to score points.
