Detroit Pistons vs LA Lakers: Prediction (Feb 13, 2024)

Detroit Pistons vs LA Lakers: Prediction (Feb 13, 2024)

The Detroit Pistons will face the LA Lakers on February 13 at the Crypto.com Arena. This will be the second and final meeting between the two teams this season, with the Lakers winning the first time on November 29, 2023. D’Angelo Russell had 35 points in the Lakers’ 133-107 win. LeBron James finished with 25 points and eight rebounds, while Anthony Davis scored 28 points, 16 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. The upcoming contest will be the 348th regular-season matchup between the two teams. The Lakers have won the last six games against the Pistons since 2021. 

 

Preview  

The Detroit Pistons are two wins away from ensuring they won’t finish with the worst record in NBA history. Detroit has been playing much better recently and is coming off a 112-106 loss to the LA Clippers, which was an impressive performance for them. Meanwhile, the LA Lakers are looking to end their three-game homestand with a win. The Lakers lost to the Denver Nuggets last Thursday before a win over the Pelicans on Friday. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Detroit Pistons have Quentin Grimes and Isaiah Stewart on the injury report. They are expected to start with Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, Ausar Thompson, Simone Fontecchio and Jalen Duren. The LA Lakers, on the other hand, will be without four players who are listed as out for the upcoming game. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are questionable, but they will likely suit up. They will be joined in the starting lineup by D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura.

Prediction 

The LA Lakers are favorites to defeat the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. The Lakers are the better team overall and the Pistons still have the worst record in the league. However, it should be pointed out that Detroit has been playing much better recently. Oddsmakers have still predicted that the Lakers will get the win, the Pistons will cover the spread and the total will go under.
