The Nets enter this game on a four-game winning streak and have shown a lot of resilience the past week and change. Last game, the Nets were without both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. James Harden led a comeback down 22 in the second half to steal a win. Durant will remain sidelined against the Lakers, but Irving is expected to return, being listed as probable.
The Lakers have also shown resilience with Anthony Davis on the sideline. That isn’t exactly a tough task when you have LeBron James. We do need to give credit to the Lakers’ depth, which has stepped up as well. Kyle Kuzma has stepped up and played well in AD’s absence. Los Angeles has won 8 of 9 games, but this will be the team’s toughest test of that entire stretch. We’ll see if LeBron can fend off his former teammate in Irving.
