Regular Season
Los Angeles Lakers v Cleveland Cavaliers Arena
Los Angeles, USA
Saturday, 6 April 2024
Los Angeles Lakers will lock horns with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the National Basketball Association (NBA) match on 6 April.
This will be the 123rd meeting between the two teams in regular-season games since the 1970/71 season which was the Cavaliers' debut NBA campaign.
The Lakers have the upper hand in this rivalry having recorded 69 wins compared to the Cavaliers' 53 victories from 122 games. 
Last Meeting 
The Lakers defeated the Cavaliers, 121-115 in a game which was staged at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. 
Anthony Davis led all scorers with 32 points (23 in the 2nd half), 13 rebounds, and three blocks for the Lakers as they secured the victory. 
Key Players
LeBron James remains the Lakers' most influential player having established himself as one of the best slashers and finishers in basketball.
While the Cavaliers' star player is Donovan Mitchell, who tallied 22 points, five rebounds, and six assists against the Lakers in their last meeting. 
Mitchell, playing in his second game since missing six with a broken nose, finished with 13 points for the Cavaliers against the Denver Nuggets on 31 March.
“He wants to play and he wants to be out there with his teammates,” Cavaliers coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. 
“He wants to compete, to try and help us be in the best position moving forward, but if you take time off it’s going to take some time to find your rhythm again.”
