After two full days off, Los Angeles returns to the court looking to regain the momentum that was halted by Monday’s 122-109 loss to the Denver Nuggets. LeBron James didn’t play in that game due to ankle soreness.
The Mavs are in fifth place in the Western Conference with a 23-19 record, and although he doesn’t have a lot of help around him, Luka Doncic is on a tear. He’s averaging 34.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game as he’s single-handedly carrying his team toward the playoffs again.
These two teams met on Christmas Day, with Dallas winning easily, 124-115.
