Brooklyn Nets vs LA Lakers Prediction & Match Preview – December 25th, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The Brooklyn Nets will take on the LA Lakers at the newly renamed Crypto. com Arena on Christmas Day. This will be the first time the two star-studded teams will meet in the 2021-22 regular season.
Coming into this matchup, the Nets have had their last two games postponed due to NBA health and safety protocols. Their last game was on December 18, where they suffered a disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic.
After that game, the team will have six days to recover, which could give them an added advantage. With several of their stars back from protocols, the Nets will have plenty of confidence against the imploding Lakers.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers come into this game after suffering a shocking loss to the San Antonio Spurs. This was their fourth straight loss of the season, which has dropped them below the .500 mark. LeBron James and Russell Westbrook had stellar games, but in the end, their efforts were not enough to save the night for the team.
The duo will hope to turn things around and get a much-needed positive result against the Nets on Saturday.

Nets vs Lakers Game Prediction
Brooklyn Nets vs LA Lakers is unlikely to live up to its billing, as both teams will likely be shorthanded. Considering the two squads, the LA Lakers look like a team more likely to win this game.
