LOS ANGELES KEY TRENDS: The Lakers are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games and have covered in seven of their last nine games overall. That said, they're 3-12-1 against the number in their last 16 games when playing an opponent with a winning percentage below .400 and are just 1-7 against the number in their last eight road games versus a team with a losing home record.

They've also failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and are just 8-20-1 at the betting window in their last 29 games versus Western Conference opponents.
