The Los Angeles Lakers officially on a good way to become contenders. The team took down the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, and defeated the Sacramento Kings. LeBron James and the rest of the Lakers got back to a .500 record at 6-6. Tyson Chandler arrived right on time, and he was able to do whatever it takes for the Lakers to boost their defense. Are the Hawks ready for the challenge?
The Lakers had too many problems on their defense, and Chandler changed that. The team may not be perfect, but they are winning games. If you ask NBA experts, they will say that the Lakers will have to go a long way before becoming perfect. The good news is that the team is moving forward to greater times, and the Hawks are next on their list.
The Lakers are ready to make another step forward. The Atlanta Hawks are confronting the team on Sunday, and everyone knows that they are one of the worst teams in the league. Winning this game will bring the Lakers above .500 for the first time in the regular season. How much do we know about Sunday’s starting lineup?
Head coach Luke Walton used the same starting lineup for the past few games. Chandler was on the team, and Brandon Ingram is entering the game with a minor ankle injury. Walton will have to make a couple of decisions before the matchup.
Lonzo Ball is definitely playing. Rajon Rondo may be breathing down his neck, but Ball helped the team win games. He is a starter, that’s a sure bet.
Brandon Ingram and LeBron James are not going anywhere. They will start the game.
Kyle Kuzma had a bizarre second season in the league. Tyson Chandler is added to the starting lineup due to his great contribution.
