NBA FREE PICK: Take Lakers. According to latest NBA trends, Clippers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. Lakers are 9-3 ATS at home last 12 in series and Favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Clippers (38-17 SU, 30-25 ATS, 29-26 O/U) are trying to end the first half with a four-game winning streak. The Lakers (25-28 SU, 21-31-1 ATS, 25-27-1 O/U) have won two of three including a 91-85 win over Phoenix, giving 8.5 on Tuesday. Kobe Bryant will bounce back from a terrible game, as he went 1-for-8 on Tuesday, with eight turnovers. But he's still averaging 27 points per game and has averaged 8.3 assists per game over the last 11, as he's becoming more of a feeder. Despite being one of the biggest disappointments of the season, the Lakers have put together their own strong stretch, winning eight of 11 after dropping 10 of 12. Bryant normally plays well against the Clippers as he's averaging 35.3 points on 55.6 percent from the floor over the past six meetings, and he's totaled 78 points in this season's two losses. Dwight Howard managed 21 points and 15 rebounds with two blocks against the Clippers last month. He came up big again Tuesday, totaling 19 points and 18 rebounds versus the Suns. The Lakers need this game more than the Clippers as they can't afford to go into the break 4 games under .50
