On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Lakers’ last five games, 12-5-1 in their last 18 road games and 4-1 in their last five games playing on back-to-back nights.

Los Angeles has the worst defensive efficiency numbers in the NBA and will be playing on tired legs tonight. With Milwaukee ranked only 22nd in defensive efficiency, points won’t be a problem tonight.
