Boston Celtics

The Celtics aren’t wasting their time either, but they can’t boast of a result like the Lakers. The team is fighting for the second place in the Eastern Conference and looks good in general.

Although Boston Celtics is the third team of the Eastern Conference, showing a very high quality game this season, even against the average person on the road recently played uncertainly. The team from Massachusetts has suffered five losses in ten away matches, and speaking against the leader of the Western Conference, their chances of winning are even lower.

It should be recalled that in the last five games Boston scored four wins, dealing with Oklahoma (112-111) and defeating Clippers (127-117) in overtime. In the match against the Clippers club Brad Stevens went va-bank and did not lose.

Boston is approaching the upcoming meeting with one fairly serious loss – Kemba Walker has a knee injury, so his participation in the match is in big doubt: he’s likely not to play. It hits the attacking potential of the visitors quite hard, so you shouldn’t expect the same performance in the attack as you did in the last in-person meeting – and in defense it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to show your best side.

Los Angeles Lakers

The team from Los Angeles has a powerful season and aims to finish the main tournament in first place. LeBron James and Anthony Davis star bundle has met all expectations, but the main stake will be on the championship.

The Lakers are the leaders of the Western Conference, and every day they only increase the gap on points from the nearest pursuers. Frank Vogel’s players showed the worst result at the end of 2019, losing four games in a row, but they’ve been working on their mistakes ever since, with only one loss in the last six games proving it.

The Lakers made four wins in a row and broke away from their closest rival, Denver. Frank Vogel set up the team game, though it’s no secret that everything is run by The King James.

In the next meeting the Lake will not be able to help only DeMarcus Cousins, but without him the club is doing well, but the opponent has more serious losses, so you need to use this shnez, especially the game will be held in their native walls.

All players in Los Angeles can go out on the court, and bring their team benefit: in the conditions of a home match, and in many respects the principled status of the meeting, one should expect from LeBron and the company a sufficiently high level of efficiency – all this can easily be converted into a confident victory.

Celtics vs Lakers Prediction

In general, we have a rather strong team of guests, which this year shows a productive and qualitative game, but mostly at home. But on the road their results are several times worse, moreover, against the Lakers, who lose to few teams this season, the chances of winning the Boston Celtics team are minimal.

Our prediction: Dallas Mavericks will win.
