The Los Angeles Lakers (36-34 SU, 29-40-1 ATS, 35-34-1 O/U) have lost two in a row though they just did get Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol back against Washington. They fell on Friday night, 103-100, giving 11.5 at home. Golden State beat Washington on Saturday, 101-92, giving 8.5 at home. The . The Lakers just got Gasol and Bryant back for the Wizards game but blew a huge lead before fading in the second half. Gasol might have been rusty after not playing for 20 games and played just 20 minutes on Friday. The Lakers are 3.5 games behind Golden State in the Western Conference. The Lakers are in eighth place and Golden State is in sixth. Bryant missed the last two games with a sprained ankle and the flu before playing on Saturday. The Warriors did beat a tired and short-handed Washington team on Saturday, but leading scorer Stephen Curry sprained his ankle late in the game. He's expected to play but the one day of rest might not be enough. The Lakers have dominated this series, winning six straight games and won the first game on Nov. 9, 101-77. They have too much size for the Warriors, led by Dwight Howard, who should dominate a fragile Andrew Bogut. Expect the size to wear the Warriors down.
