The Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks collide at the State Farm Arena on Tuesday night. Here’s a Lakers vs Hawks Prediction.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in fine form as they've won five of their last eight games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting trounced by the Rockets in a 135-119 road defeat last night. Anthony Davis, LeBron James and D'Angelo Russell each scored 23 points while Rui Hachimura chipped in with 16 points off the bench, but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Lakers shot 49 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line, but they didn't come out with the intent to play defense and were always fighting an uphill battle after allowing 78 points in the first half. The Lakers trailed in this game by as many as 30 points before they scored a late flurry of points to keep the final scores somewhat respectable. The Lakers will face the Celtics after this game.

Los Angeles Lakers Player Facts

  • Anthony Davis ranks 1st amongst qualified Forwards for rebounds per game (12.1) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in a bit of a rut, but they will be feeling much better after snapping a four-game slide with a 126-125 home win over the Raptors on Sunday. Trae Young led the team with 30 points and 12 assists, Saddiq Bey added 26 points with 13 rebounds, Bogdan Bogdanovic added 24 points while Clint Capela chipped in with 19 points and 14 rebounds. As a team, the Hawks shot 46 percent from the field and six of 27 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they trailed multiple occasions late in the contest, before they stole the win thanks to Saddiq Bey who made the game-winning shot with just 1.1 seconds left on the clock.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (13.1).
  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for field goal attempts per game this season (93.2).
  • The Lakers rank 30th in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (8.3).
  • The Lakers rank 30th in the league for opponent three-point field goals made per game this season (14.4).

Lakers vs Hawks Prediction

The Lakers are still missing Gabe Vincent and Cam Reddish, while the Hawks have listed De'Andre Hunter and Dejounte Murray both as questionable for this one. The Lakers were building some good momentum before their ugly loss to the Rockets last night, but that's not shocking given that they were coming off a double overtime game. Meanwhile, the Hawks were really struggling before they got a win over the Raptors on Sunday. The Lakers have been the team in better form recently, but they could easily rest a couple starters for this one, so I'm leaning towards the Hawks to get a much-needed win at home.
