Lakers at Dallas Tonight

In what could be an eventual Western Conference finals matchup the Los Angeles Lakers travel to AmericanAirlines Center in Dallas to take on the Dallas Mavericks February 22. The Lakers beat the Portland Trail Blazers Monday night after suffering a road loss in Phoenix Sunday. The Lakers are 19-13 and sitting in second place in the Pacific division. Dallas is 21-12 and currently in second place in the Southwest division behind the San Antonio Spurs.

As usual, the trio of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum leads the Lakers. Bryant leads the team in scoring, assists and steals. He is scoring 29 per game while averaging 5 assists and 1.3 per contest. Bynum is pulling down 12.8 rebounds per game and scoring 16.3 per game. Gasol averages 16.6 points and 10.7 rebounds per game.

Dirk Nowitzki leads the Mavericks in scoring with a 19.4 average. Brenden Haywood is averaging 6.7 rebounds to lead the team in that category. Veteran point guard Jason Kidd is leading the team in both assists and steals this season.

Head to head Dallas holds a 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS edge over Los Angeles in the last ten games between the two teams. The total has been OVER 6 of the last 10 times the two have met. Dallas has averaged three more points in those ten games.

Of late, the Lakers are playing better ball with the Phoenix loss their only loss in their last five games. Dallas also has played well of late with a 4-1 SU record in their last five games. They have beaten Boston, Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Clippers during that time frame.

Bryant recently expressed his displeasure with management over their handling of trade rumors about teammate Gasol. That could have an effect on how the team plays on the road against the Mavericks. Dallas should be a good bet SU in this matchup.

Bet Dallas -195
