NBA Game Preview and Pick: Lakers vs. Hawks

Lakers at Home

As always Kobe Bryant who just passed ex-teammate Shaquille O’Neal in all time scoring, leads the Lakers. Bryant is averaging a team high 29.3 points and 5 assists per game. Andrew Bynum continues to control the boards for the Lakers by averaging 12.5 per game. Power forward Pau Gasol is averaging 16.7 points and 10.5 rebounds per game helping the Lakers score an average of over 92 points per game.

The Hawks rely on veteran Joe Johnson and a host of other players. Johnson leads the team in scoring with 18.2 points per game. Josh Smith is averaging 15.2 points and 9.2 rebounds each game to help the team’s offense. The Hawks have five players averaging double figures and are scoring over 95 points per game.

Head to head the Lakers are 7-3 SU over the last ten games the two have met. The Lakers are also 6-4 ATS in those same ten games between the two teams. The total has been OVER 5 times and UNDER 5 times over the last ten games the two have played head to head.

As noted before, the Lakers are coming off a long road trip where they were 2-3 SU. That trip included losses to Atlantic leading Philadelphia and two other teams in the division, the Celtics and Knicks. Atlanta has not fared any better, as they are just 2-3 SU over their last five games.

They lost a tough game Sunday night at home to Miami as they were blown out by 20 points. Other losses in their last five games were to Phoenix and Philadelphia. The Lakers should prevail both SU and ATS. Opening line is Lakers -5.
