4* NBA ROAD WARRIOR KNOCKOUT
LA Lakers vs. Sacramento,
12/26/2011 22:00 EDT,
Score: 91 - 100
Point Spread: -2½/-103 LA Lakers
I was really impressed with how well the Lakers looked yesterday against the Bulls. While they ended up losing the game on a last second shot, they still covered the spread. The fat that Los Angeles was a 4-point underdog at home really says a lot about the perception of this team. Los Angeles was up double-digits late in the fourth quarter, had they won that game like they should (lot of missed free throws), they would likely be favored by 5-7 points.
I know they are playing on the road in a back-to-back situation, but consecutive games aren't going to be a problem this early in the season. Sacramento is an up-and-coming team, but they still have a long way to go. My money is on Kobe making sure his team doesn't start the season 0-2! BET THE LAKERS -2.5!
