Injury Report: Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon is sidelined with a stress reaction in his leg until mid-January. The Lakers do not have any players on their injury report.

Who the Trends Like: Atlanta is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 meetings in Los Angeles. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Los Angeles and 4-1 in the last five meetings overall.

Who We Like: The Lakers have the perfect foe to end their losing streak, an Atlanta team that is only 3-17 on the road this season. Los Angeles is fully healthy and after head coach Luke Walton dispelled rumors that he has lost the locker room, a win or two need to happen to back up that claim.
