NBA FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest NBA trends, Spurs are 0-7 last 7 under overall, 3-9 last 12 under vs. Western Conference and 8-20 last 28 under vs. a team with a winning SU record. Lakers are 2-8 last 10 under at home, 7-20 last 27 under in this series and 1-10 last 11 on the under at home vs. a team with a winning road record.

San Antonio (58-21 SU, 39-38-2 ATS, 34-43-2 O/U) is coming off a 108-101 win laying 11.5 on Friday. The Lakers (43-37 SU, 32-46-2 ATS, 43-37-2 O/U) are coming off a 118 116 win over Golden State giving 7 on Friday.  The Los Angeles Lakers average 102.4 points per game and allow 101.3 points. But expect those numbers to change until their season ends-which will be shortly. Kobe Bryant will miss the next six-to-nine months after rupturing his Achilles tendon on Friday against Golden State. He averages 27.3 points per game, 5.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists. Bryant had scored 111 points in his last three games including 34 in 45 minutes on Friday. That's a huge loss to the offense and they have nobody remotely who can replace him. Without Bryant, the Lakers are either going to have to start Metta World Peace (12.5 points, 40.5 field goal percentage) at shooting guard or Jodie Meeks(7.9 points, 39 percent field goal).. Coach Mike D'Antoni is going to have to think out of the box in this one and that's rely on his frontcourt and slow the game down, which is not always his style. The Spurs visit the Staples Center to take on the Lakers at 9:30pmET on Sunday night.
