James and Davis should be good enough to defeat the Hawks and there is more good news for the Lakers.
Kuzma seems to be doing well off the bench and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 16 against the Kings too.
The Hawks need to near perfect against the Lakers, and it will be interesting to see how they react to the loss against the Clippers.
Caruso seems to be doing a good job off the bench and the LA star scored some important points in his previous outing.
The bulk of the scoring will be done from the other positions, but Caruso is a decent option for the team.

Danny Green hasn’t always scored big since his move from Toronto, but the shooting guard is another decent option to have on the side.
The King, James, has to feature in this position. LeBron has been exceptional since the start of the campaign, and any Lakers Dream 11 game must have the multiple-time NBA champion.

He would be joined by his teammate Cam Reddish who bagged 12 points in the loss to the Clippers.
Davis had an off night in the previous game but still racked 17 points and five rebounds.
The former Pelicans star could have a big night against the Hawks, and should not be left out from the team.
