Magic: topicality and form
With a record of eight wins for 38 losses, the Magic is logically dead last in the Eastern Conference. He is living a second season of transition with a lackluster sporting record. Orlando remains on three consecutive losses against the Mavericks (108-92), the Blazers (88-98) and the Sixers (123-110). This match against the Lakers could therefore not be a gift.
Orlando: players to watch
Despite the big defeat against Philadelphia, Mo Bamba had released a big performance as he compiled 32 points, far from his average of 10.4 points per game. He will start the game, just like the leader of this team Cole Anthony. His lack of success in recent games penalizes his team and he will therefore have to wake up tonight.
Lakers: news and form
It’s still not a great joy for the Lakers, defeated in four of their last five games. If they beat the Jazz (101-95), they lost against the Grizzlies (119-127), the Kings (125-116), the Nuggets (133-96) and finally the Pacers (104-111) . Still, the Lakers need to win when they’re not in a comfortable accounting position. They are eighth with the same number of wins as the Clippers.
Los Angeles: players to watch
Anthony Davis is still not back in the Angelenos group. To which is added the uncertainty surrounding the presence of Lebron James. As a result, Russell Westbrook will be the Lakers player to watch. After his poster on Gobert against the Jazz, the leader stood out. He who has never regained his performance of last season in Los Angeles, seems to be clearly progressing.
Five major Orlando Magic – LA Lakers:
The Magic could see an opportunity to make a good move by receiving the Lakers in poor shape. But the California franchise will not be able to afford another defeat, especially against an extremely weak team. So we’re betting on the Lakers.

For this second prediction, we draw your attention to an audacious rating. Meetings between the two franchises are often not very hectic and the absence of several major players should not help for that. It is therefore possible to see a total of points between 201 and 210.
