On paper, the Los Angeles Lakers are not off to a perfect start in the 2019-20 NBA season. However, after Week 2 in the NBA, one look at the Lakers' form so far paints a different picture. LeBron James is as fit as ever despite entering his 17th season in the NBA and new signing Anthony Davis has slotted right into the team to provide the Lakers with a springboard to success this season. As the Lakers get ready to face Miami Heat at the Staples Center on Saturday, November 9 (9:00 AM IST), here's our Dream11 take on LAL vs MIA.

The opening week loss to Kawhi Leonard's LA Clippers may have done more good than bad for the Lakers this season. The Lakers have always been in the spotlight in the NBA. However, after a loss to the Clippers, some of that spotlight has moved away from the Lakers and on to their neighbours, LA Clippers. This means that LeBron James and co. can now shrug off the mammoth expectations and get their season underway the best way they know how - by dominating the court.

The arrival of Anthony Davis means that the Lakers now have the ability to have their five best players on the floor at the same time. The gamble to sign Dwight Howard has also paid off for the Lakers. Howard is blocking more shots than he has been blocking in his last seven seasons and on the offensive end, Howard is currently shooting at 79.2 per cent. Not bad for a gamble, is it?

Miami Heat, meanwhile, have been mounting somewhat of a resurgence and will fancy their chances against the Lakers. Avery Bradley, the Lakers' starting point guard is expected to miss the game against Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo also remains a doubt for the game.
