Los Angeles Lakers 5-1 started the new season with a loss from their biggest rival for the championship this year Los Angeles Clippers 102-112. In their second match, they beat Utah Jazz 95-86 and in their third game, they finally got a win with scoring more than 100 points – 120 against Charlotte Hornets and beat them 120-101. They won again after scoring 120 points again Memphis Grizzlies 120-91. After the loss from Clippers, Lakers’ toughest match was against Dallas Mavericks and L.A. beat them after OT 119-110. LeBron James was the key for the victory after scoring 39 points, gave 12 assists and finished with 12 rebounds.
For Mavericks, Luka Dončić also finished with a triple double after scoring 31 points, gave 13 assists and got 13 rebounds but that wasn’t enough for his team to beat L.A. Lakers. On Sunday they played against San Antonio Spurs and got their fifth win in a row at AT&T Center in San Antonio after Anthony Davis and LeBron James finished with 46 points combined and Avery Bradley added 16 points for less than 27 minutes.
Chicago Bulls 2-5 will probably not make it to the playoffs in the East. They started the season with a one-point loss from Charlotte Hornets 125-126 but in their second game, they got their first win against Memphis Grizzlies 110-102. The key for this victory was Zach LaVine with 37 points and Coby White added 25 points for 30 minutes. After that win, Bulls lost 3 games in a row. The first loss was from Toronto Raptors 84-108 and their second was against New York Knicks 98-105. Knicks was the underdog in the match against Bulls but beat them.
Their third loss was again against a weak team – Cleveland Cavaliers 111-117. The loses from Knicks and Cavaliers showed us that Chicago will have again a season in which they will do nothing. They stopped the loses with a win at home against Detroit Pistons 112-106 as Zach LaVine scored 26 points and Otto Porter finished with 22 points. In their last match, they got beaten by Indiana Pacers 95-108.
Chicago Bulls are 1-1 at home but I don’t think that they will have any chance against L.A. Lakers with James, Davis and most likely Kyle Kuzma will be back. NBA free picks: Los Angeles Lakers Spread
