Atlanta Hawks at Los Angeles Lakers Predictions & Tips


Los Angeles can make it five-in-a-row by grounding the high-flying Atlanta Hawks.

Atlanta are on a hot run right now with seven straight wins, but only one has come against opposition above .500.

And on the road they have beaten only one team above .500 since January 1.

So as hot as the Hawks are, backing the in-form Lakers to win at home appears to be a better bet.

  • The Los Angeles Lakers have won each of their last four games
  • LA have covered a -4.0 spread in each of their last eight victories
  • Atlanta are riding a seven-game win streak
  • However, the Hawks have only beaten one team above .500 during their good run
  • Atlanta have managed just two road wins against teams with records currently above .500
  • The Lakers ran out 107-99 winners in Atlanta back in February 1

Head To Head


  • Los Angeles Lakers lead the regular season series 193-140
  • The Lakers have on each of the last three games against the Hawks and eight of the last nine
  • Los Angeles win 107-99 when these teams met back on February 1

Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


Atlanta have stormed into the playoff places thanks to a seven-game win streak.

This good run of form was the perfect response to a difficult run in February that saw them go 4-11. This run included a home defeat to LA.

The Hawks are set to be without Cam Reddish (Achilles) and De’Andre Hunter (knee) for this meeting with the Lakers.

The game may come too soon for Kris Dunn, who returned to practice this week and will be assessed during this eight-game roadtrip.

Los Angeles Lakers Form & Team News


Los Angeles have bounced back from a miserable run of form in late February with four straight wins.

This run includes a blow-out win over Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, as well as a comfortable win over a previously in-form Charlotte team.

There is no doubting, however, that the Lakers are weakened by the ongoing absence of Anthony Davis (Achilles).

He is joined on the sidelines by Jared Dudley (torn MCL), while Marc Gasol and Kostas Antetokounmpo are both in the league’s Healty & Safety Protocols.

Verdict
