The Los Angeles Lakers might have had an up and down season but they’re getting hot at the right time. Whenever you have LeBron James who is one if not THE best basketball player of all time – your team is destine for greatness.
But that doesn’t always matter and to start the season it didn’t seem like Los Angeles would make any sort of playoff run.
But here we are. Los Angeles has won game one of their playoff series against Memphis. Personally I didn’t think going into the game that Los Angeles would win but with star player Ja Morant getting injured for Memphis it definitely helps the Lakers odds which you can check NBA picks on BetWay.
Morant returned to the bench before the end of the game with a wrap on his hand, but he didn’t play again. Head coach Taylor Jenkins told reporters after the game that X-rays were negative. That was before Morant told reporters his status for Game 2 was “in jeopardy.”
Without Morant, Los Angeles has the upper hand for sure. Anthony Davis got hurt during game 1 for LA, but came back and had a great performance. A red hot Anthony Davis, a scoring machine in Austin Reeves, LeBron James, and the entire Lakers roster getting hot at the right time?
Los Angeles is a team that everyone is scared to play.
