Los Angeles Lakers Fantasy Spin

LeBron James scored 18 points with nine rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, six turnovers and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Rockets during a 121-111 loss on Thursday. The Lakers stood pat at the deadline while they had recently-acquired Lord Robert Covington come up huge down the stretch to beat them. The Lakers will certainly be looking to add players in the buyout market, and of course their playoff rotation will be dangerous as they extend minutes for LeBron and AD. LeBron has still looked as good as ever with a fancy reverse jam, and he's clearly over the down year from last season.

Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin

Draymond Green (lower back tightness) is questionable for Saturday vs. the Lakers. He didn't get the sore back from carrying his teammates with the Warriors sitting at 12-40. Golden State has used every excuse in the book to sit Draymond and sporadic DNPs are going to be par for the course as they tank their season away. If Green sits, look for Eric Paschall to get the bulk of the power forward minutes with Marquese Chriss getting a ton of burn at the five

NBA Prediction

The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams and has hit in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in Oakland. That said, I’m going to buck those trends and take the over, which is 10-3 in the Lakers’ last 13 games overall, is 7-2 in their last nine road games and is 7-3 in their last 10 games when they’re listed as the favorite. On the other side the over is 6-2 in the Warriors’ last eight games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a loss and is 7-2 in their last nine games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous contest.
