The Los Angeles Lakers are playing an important game on Christmas Day. The Los Angeles Clippers are next on their list, and the teams will meet for a highly-anticipated game.
The king of basketball made a huge promise about the game. LeBron is ready to protect the “home” court, and we all know what that means.
Lakers fans are really worried about the three-time MVP and his injury.
LeBron and Anthony Davis will confront Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Wednesday’s game between the Lakers and the Clippers is one of the biggest regular-season games in recent NBA history. We believe that every fan will watch the game. LeBron and Davis were both considered questionable with injuries on Monday. However, both stars are expected to play on Christmas after an impromptu practice was held on Tuesday morning. The information was confirmed by Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
The Christmas Game will have huge impact
The Lakers had been dominant so far in the season, and most of that happened because the players are healthy. LeBron and Davis combined to miss only one of the team’s first 27 games. The Lakers started 24-3. However, after Davis missed Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, the Lakers started to make mistakes. The team lost that game and then lost another game to the Milwaukee Bucks. The worst loss of the season happened after the game to the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers lost 128-104, as LeBron sat out with a thoracic muscle strain and a nagging groin issue. In that loss, the former Pelicans star hyperextend his knee while stepping on a wet spot in the fourth quarter, and the Lakers were down 22 points at that point.
After the game, Davis talked to media members. He said that he plans to see how his knee feels before making a decision on his status and recovery. LeBron’s injury came as an unexpected shock for the team and the fans.
LeBron’s injury is the biggest concern at the moment. He was limited to 55 games last season. Hopefully, none of that will happen again. The Lakers need him healthy, and LeBron will do his best to win the game against the Clippers.
