The Lakers are so far in so much criticism after struggling in their first 6 games. Blowing big leads and leads to a loss, especially the match with the Oklahoma City Thunder where they suppose to win that game.

Also, they barely win games against the Memphis Grizzlies and the San Antonio Spurs that needed overtime to pass the Spurs.

The games against the Cleveland Cavaliers is also a hard earn win after trailing for almost entire 3 quarter and just find their ways a late end game run to win that game.

For this game the LA Lakers are expected to win the game convincingly? Like the game that they suppose to win against the OKC this is a similar situation that they must dominate the game from start to finish?
