LAL vs OKC Dream 11: Will James continue his incredible form for the Lakers?

The Los Angeles Lakers are the best in the West. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have handed the team a great start this season, and they look good to make it to the playoffs.

Davis still looks a little off in some games but that isn’t a problem when the bench is doing their bit.

Alex Caruso, Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo are all capable of scoring in double-digits, and that should bode well for the LA team.

The Oklahoma City Thunder would need a lot of luck to qualify for the playoffs. They lost Russell Westbrook in the off-season but got Chris Paul in his place.

The former Rockets star has tried his bit for the new team, but they just seem to be missing out on another heavy hitter.

This would be the Thunder’s second LA game in a short span of time, and they are in action against the Clippers prior to this clash.

It will be interesting to see how they do against the other side from LA, but it is unlikely they will cause the Clippers any problems.

The Thunder are 5-7 before their game against the Clippers, and they do have some decent shooters in the team.

Point guards

Caruso has been one of the pleasant surprises for the Lakers despite other big names in the team.

The Laker has come off the bench to great effect and is almost certain to get 10+ points.

Paul scored 27 points in the win over the 76ers and could lead the Thunder against the much more illustrious Lakers team.

Shooting guards

Hamidou Diallo might be a surprise selection given his lack of playing time, but he does allow to have some big names in the other positions.

Small forwards

James has to be part of the Dream 11 team given his exploits with the Lakers this season.

The King would be joined by Caldwell-Pope and the Thunder’s Terrance Ferguson, who scored 19 points in the win over the 76ers.

Power forwards

Davis might not be doing great at the moment, but the former Pelicans star is capable of going on a rampage and should be in the team.

Centers

Steven Adams is a decent selection for the center position. The New Zealand star edges ahead of the likes of Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee for this spot.

Star player

Davis was picked for the previous Lakers game, but he didn’t light it up. Selecting James makes sense given that he is always amongst the points and could do a lot of damage to the Thunder too.

Prediction
