Following its 109-106 win over Golden State on Friday night, this is a natural letdown game for Boston. The Lakers are marred in controversy after a video recorded by D'Angelo Russell caught teammate Nick Young essentially admitting to cheating on his fiancé, pop star Iggy Azalea. But the team rallied together for a 102-100 win over the Heat on Wednesday night and have been off for three straight nights.

The Lakers might not pull off the upset but they should be able to stay within the point spread.
