The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers meet Saturday in NBA preseason action at the Shenzhen Universiade Center.
The Brooklyn Nets look to improve to 3-0 in preseason action after beating these Lakers on Thursday morning. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 125.5 points on 52.7 percent shooting and allowing 100 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Taurean Prince is averaging 20 points and four rebounds while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 16.8 points and 4.6 assists. Caris LeVert is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is dishing 2.4 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 42.2 percent from beyond the arc and 65.6 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.5 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have won seven of their last 10 preseason games.
The Los Angeles Lakers have a chance to get a game above a .500 record in preseason action after losing to these Nets by three points. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 117 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 42 percent shooting. Anthony Davis is averaging 19 points and six rebounds while LeBron James is averaging 17.5 points and five assists. Troy Daniels is the third double-digit scorer and Rajon Rondo is dishing five assists. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 69.8 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 51.5 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Lakers have won four of their last six preseason games.
The under is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Nets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lakers are 10-3-2 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Brooklyn. The under is 14-2 in the last 16 meetings in Brooklyn and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
There's a good chance the Nets will be without LeVert and Kyrie for this game, limiting the depth of this roster. The Los Angeles Lakers are fairly healthy in terms of their rotation pieces, and they've shot the ball all through two games and have to like their chances if they clean up the turnovers. The Lakers lost the first meeting against the Nets by three points despite 21 turnovers. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
