through 3 quarters

The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have both suffered losses in their previous games, but the Nets are closer to making up for it. Brooklyn unwrapped a big 102-82 lead against the Lakers after three quarters.

Brooklyn capitalized on the performance of point guard James Harden, who has 32 points and eight assists as well as seven rebounds and three blocks. A double-double would be The Beard’s fifth in a row. One thing to watch out for is Patty Mills’ bad situation, who currently has four.

Los Angeles is led by small forward LeBron James, who so far has 26 points in addition to seven rebounds.

That’s the most points Brooklyn has yet this year heading into the fourth quarter.

What there is to know

The Brooklyn Nets have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last three games, but now they have to hit the road. They will face the Los Angeles Lakers at 8 p.m. ET last Saturday at Crypto.com Arena after having had a few days off. Both teams suffered a loss in their last game, so they will have a lot of motivation to get the “W”.

Brooklyn failed against the Orlando Magic last week, losing 100-93. Little forward Kessler Edwards had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with just nine points on a 4-on-13 shot during his 38 minutes on the field.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles may be a bit too much of the holiday spirit, giving the San Antonio Spurs an easy 138-110 victory. It was supposed to be a close game, and the Lakers were supposed to win, but none of those things ended up happening. A silver lining for them was the play of little forward LeBron James, who had 36 points and six assists in addition to nine boards. The game made it LBJ’s third in a row with at least 31 points.

The losses put Brooklyn at 21-9 and Los Angeles at 16-17. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before kick-off: Brooklyn kept their opponents at a 42.90% field goal percentage, which puts them second in the league. Less enviable, the Lakers stumble in the game with the fourth most points allowed per game in the league, after allowing 112 on average.
