NBA FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest NBA trendsDenver is:2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. The Lakers have won three straight games including a 103-99 victory Sunday at Dallas as a 3-point betting dog. Denver bounced back with an easy win over Charlotte, 113-99 on Saturday after losing at Washington on Friday night. The Lakers are finally on the right track and need a win to reach the .500 mark for the first time since November. They have now won 11 of 15 games and are getting closer the eighth and final playoff spot. Kobe Bryant guaranteed that the Lakers would make the playoffs and so far, his words are starting to ring true. He is also getting back to form with 78 points in his last two games after really struggling with his shot. Steve Nash also put up 20 points against Dallas, which was the first time he reached that mark with the Lakers. On of Denver's best player is Danilo Gallinari, who is averaging 16.9 points to lead the team but he's not 100 percent as he's dealing with a thigh injury. Expect the Lakers to slow this game down and protect the paint with Dwight Howard, making this a very close game.
