Lakers vs Nets Betting Preview

It’s been three years since LeBron James last faced Kevin Durant and it looks like fans will have to wait a while longer before they play again. Durant is unlikely to clear the NBA’s health and safety protocols in time for the game in LA.

Brooklyn were forced to play with only 8 players in their last outing, losing 100-93 to Orlando. They should be welcoming back James Harden into the fold in time for their trip to LA but even he might not be enough to save them from the Lakers.

The Lakers have been a .500 team all season long but LeBron has a 10-5 record on Christmas Day. Expect LeBron to carry the load this year with Anthony Davis out. The Lakers should be strong enough at home to bounce back from their embarrassing loss to the Spurs with an easy win over the Nets.
