The Lakers and the Pistons meet for the second time in eight days, with both outfits desperate to find some form.
LA slump into this fixture off the back of a cruel triple-over-time defeat to the Sacramento Kings, with LeBron, AD, and Westbrooke spending a combined 150 minutes on the court!
Subsequently, both LeBron and Davis have been labelled as day-to-day on LA’s injury report, and I’d be surprised if either big guns back up here.
The Pistons have covered the points spread in each of their last five games against the Lakers.
The LA franchise has struggled with the favouritism tag this season, covering the line just three times across 13 games as the bookies’ fav.
This game could have plenty of spice in it following the LeBron elbowing incident with Isaiah Stewart last week, although both of those players are unlikely to share to court on this occasion, I believe both sides will want to set a physical standard.
I’m backing the underdogs to keep this one close in what is sure to be a game of horrific basketball standards!
