NBA Daily Injury Report (January 29th): ‘Classic Match’ Boston-Lakers, second match of the season!

 The Boston Celtics and the LA Lakers meet. This is the second classic match of the season.

Boston and Lakers will face off in the 2022-2023 NBA (American Professional Basketball) regular season at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, USA on the 29th (Korean time). Boston has 2 wins and 3 losses in the last 5 games, including 3 losses in a row, and the Lakers are in a rather conflicting atmosphere with 3 wins and 2 losses in 5 games.

Boston, which ranks first in the Eastern Conference, is losing momentum with three consecutive losses after winning nine in a row recently. With Marcus Smart (28, 190cm) and Robert Williams III (25, 206cm) missing a few games due to injuries, the gap was left to the rest of the players, including Jayson Tatum (24, 203cm) and Jaylen Brown (26, 198cm). .

Above all, the team has lost concentration as a whole, committing a total of 49 mistakes and an average of 16 or more mistakes in the last 3 games. In the previous game, the home game against the New York Knicks, he made 13 errors, and was pushed back in a last-minute free throw fight, losing at the end of an extended game. Therefore, the key is to revive the collapsed defensive organization and concentration that Boston lacks.

On the other hand, the Lakers are leading the team’s upward trend with LeBron James (38, 206cm) at the center, Thomas Bryant (25, 208cm), Dennis Schroeder (29, 190cm), and Wenyan Gabriel (25, 206cm). In addition, against San Antonio on the 27th, Anthony Davis (29, 208cm) returned from injury and had a successful comeback with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocked shots, and Rui Hachimura (24, 203cm), acquired through trade, also scored 12 points and 6 rebounds. and had a satisfactory Lakers debut game.

Another hopeful thing is that players who have been on the long-term injured list are about to return one after another. In the game against Boston, it was reported that Ronnie Walker IV (24, 193cm), the core power of the bench, is highly likely to play. However, the absence period of Austin Reeves (24, 196cm) is expected to be a little longer. Reeves will have a re-examination of the injured hamstring next week. 토토사이트

In terms of objective strength, the Lakers are clearly inferior to Boston. The fact that it is an away road to Boston TD Garden, which is famous for the heat of home fans, also raises concerns.

However, looking at the recent momentum, the Lakers are also not at ease. For Boston, the home team, it seems that the key to the match will be how well it will respond without shrinking against the Lakers goal, where Davis and Bryant are holding out, with Robert Williams confirmed to miss the match.

The two teams first met on December 14 at the Lakers’ home, the Arena. At that time, with Boston winning 122-118 after a close game in overtime, Game 2, which was moved to Boston’s home TD Garden, was the best game of the day to see which team would receive the joy of the victory goddess. The big match is the second confrontation of the season between Boston and the Lakers, no matter what anyone says. [Injury update as of January 29, 9:00 am Korea time]
