LAL vs NOP Dream 11 Prediction: Hectic schedule sees the Lakers return to the court within the space of a few hours to take on New Orleans Pelicans.
Finding themselves in the midst of a congested and hectic schedule, New Orleans Pelicans is one side Los Angeles Lakers would have loved to square off against on the day. In 10th place in the Western Conference, for New Orleans Pelicans, the side has drawn to an early closure with the side suffering the fortunes of their horrendous showings.
Although they have managed to punch above their weight off late with two wins on the bounce, the 25-32 record is one they’ll find extremely arduous to overturn. And up against the Lakers today, their resurgence is set to be curtailed with the side taking on the conference leaders, a side way too exuberant for them to pull off a win against.
While nothing is in the visiting unit’s favour ahead of the day’s contest, for the Lakers, this should be a foregone conclusion. On the longest winning spree across both the conferences with 5 wins in their kitty after putting down Boston Celtics 114-112, the Lakers are on a stretch which is a testament to their profound brand of basketball this season.

LAL vs NOP Dream 11 Prediction
We begin with Alex Caruso from Los Angeles Lakers to be the first player to be hammered down in our contingent for the day. The player has controlled the centre of the court for his side with his scrimmages, one which have seen him transition the ball from defence to attack with ease.
Avery Bradley was held back against Boston the last time around to get some much needed rest, one which should invigorate him for today’s clash. His turnovers and steals will be crucial to the Lakers winning this one by a hefty margin to see us indulge in his services for the outing.
With the 10.7 apg, LeBron James was always going to be a regulation selection for us for the upcoming clash. The player has not only pulled off layups but has seen him ability to send down floating jump points and spin and slams see him amass over 25 ppg for the outfit.
With the Lakers set to canter to a win here, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should end up being handed an escalated role for the side, one which will see him drop a slew of triples on the day.
His side’s top scorer with the 26.8 ppg along with the 9.4 rpg to go with them, Anthony Davis becomes the first player to be embedded in our framework for the contest. The Lakers point guard has been in sublime touch this season with his ability to pull off a plethora of deflections and rebounds making him an early contender for Defender Of The Year.
From New Orleans Pelicans we finally have our first player make an advent with Zain Williamson repressing us for the contest.
With 10 rebounds per assists, Derrick Favors becomes the first player to come into our setup in the closing ambit. The centre from the visiting unit has been flawless and dependable when it comes to registering steals and screening players, a quality which has seen him take centrestage in his side’s paint.
Jaxson Hayes comes in as well from the side to close out our Dream 11 framework for the outing.
With both points in the paint and blocks, Davis will be our star player for the day.
