LAC Vs ORL Dream11, Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Buoyed LA Clippers look to propel themselves further up the points tally.
For Orlando Magic, yesterday’s outing was nothing short of a dream come true. When they took on Western Conference’s Los Angeles Lakers, the main concern for the side was to come out of the game without a routing to their name.
However, the side not only surpassed the wildest expectations of their vociferous supporters but silenced all naysayers with a stunning win on the day. Undoubtedly one of the most surprising results of the season, Orlando Magic pulled off an exceptional 119-118 win over the Western Conference leaders, a showing which saw them massively escalate their stature.
It was a display which will massively throttle the side ahead of today’s imminent encounter. Just the shot in the arm for the side in a hectic period, they’ll be looking to use the momentum garnered from that showing to make things equally jittery for LA Clippers in what is their second stern test in as many days.
Elsewhere, LA Clippers who flayed Cleveland Cavaliers the last time around with a 128-103 win will be looking to emulate that display to get the better of the visiting unit. They’ll be cautious after Magic’s sublime display yesterday, an outing which will see their ears be up for this outing.
Had this tie been contested yesterday, the winner would have been extremely straightforward to affirm. However, Orlando have changed the complexion of the encounter with their display yesterday, showing that they are more than just mere pushovers.
La Clippers still remain outright favourites to win this one though and we envision their attacking might sufficing on the day to take them past their opponents.
