Fixture: Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Lakers
Date & Time: Thursday, January 23, 2020, 8:00 PM ET (Friday, 1:00 AM GMT)
After lost five consecutive games with a back injury, Anthony Davis returned to the Los Angeles Lakers with 28 points. He went out of a game against New York Knicks and Davis came back to lead the Lakers to a win against precisely the same team 2 weeks later. In their 92-100 triumph, LeBron James increased his remarkable points tally by 21. Their win over the Knicks came after their loss was inflicted by Boston Celtics in the league. The Lakers’ album from the summer reads an impressive 35-9 plus they’re comfortable in addition to the Convention.
In terms of the Nets, their season was decent, although not as impressive considering their roster and the injury worries they have had to go through. They’ve dropped their last four games. All four of those games are their game and so were against teams in the top half of their NBA dining table.
Kyrie Irving missed their last game with a slight hamstring injury and is expected to return on Thursday. The Nets will be seeking to create a fight against what has been one of the greatest teams in the NBA this year.
