LA Lakers vs Atlanta Hawks Prediction comes before their NBA regular season clash on Saturday, March 20th 2021, at the 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 Atlanta Hawks Preview

Atlanta (21-20) have won seven straight since Nate McMillan took interim charge, though their encouraging streak is likely to end away in LA this weekend against LeBron James and the defending champion Lakers.

They were 116-93 winners against the Oklahoma City Thunder overnight and face an early tip-off time next, nonetheless relishing their upcoming task against a weakened but still dangerous side here.  

LA Lakers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI shows the Lakers are overwhelming favourites (78%) to prevail in this clash, and it's not exactly surprising either, considering Atlanta's injury report - Cam Reddish (achilles), De'Andre Hunter (knee) and offseason acquisition Kris Dunn (ankle) are all still sidelined. 

They're not without their own troublesome issues, as perennial All-Star Anthony Davis (hamstring) and Marc Gasol (COVID-19 protocols) are among those unavailable for selection here, but that shouldn't matter too much. 

Gasol has been averaging career-lows in points (4.8), rebounds (4.1) and FG% (40.3) in 35 starts this term - albeit with 20.1 MPG per contest.

AD has been sidelined since Valentine's Day - over a month now - so the Lakers are dealing with his absence best they can, knowing he won't be rushed back for fear of aggravating any lingering issues. 

It's not exactly a secret that Atlanta's success is predicated on whether Young and, to a lesser extent, John Collins can enjoy efficient scoring nights. Stop one or both of them, and their job becomes doubly difficult to emerge victoriously. As such, I'm backing the Lakers here.
