LA Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Saturday, March 27th 2021, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

LA Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers Preview 

Danny Green was one point shy of his season-high 29 points, hitting eight threes against his former team as the Philadelphia 76ers endured a spirited rally to hand the Lakers their fourth successive defeat with a 109-101 victory overnight.

Seth Curry had 19 points in 27 minutes, Tobias Harris produced 17 on efficient shooting with six rebounds, five assists and two steals as the Sixers have won seven of eight games without MVP candidate Joel Embiid (knee). 

"Got a chance to see some of my brothers compete against them, and there's nothing better to come out with a win," said the 33-year-old, whose sharpshooting prowess was largely inconsistent during his one-year stint in LA.

It was ring night for him and Dwight Howard, who was ejected after the first quarter for being overly aggressive when duelling with Montrezl Harrell. 

Playing without superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Lakers are on their second four-game losing run since mid-February. Kyle Kuzma scored 25 points, Harrell had 20 and eight rebounds off the bench, while Schroder had a season-high 11 assists, but it was another rough result. 

Head coach Frank Vogel lamented their inability to remain consistent throughout all four quarters, highlighting poor decision-making and defensive improvements as key to recovery from this slump.

LA Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is comfortably backing the Lakers (67.8%) to snap their four-game skid here, a generous percentage but understandable as Cavs' leading scorer Collin Sexton (24 PPG on 47.8 FG%) is listed as day-to-day with a hamstring complaint forcing him to miss their win over Chicago this week.

I am also leaning towards the Lakers improving their 14-10 record here, but it should be difficult.
