NBA FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest NBA trends, the Lakers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game and are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. New York is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 vs. NBA Pacific, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. 

Mike D'Antoni is not an unfamiliar site for New York fans. When the Los Angeles Lakers face the Knicks, it will be exactly nine months since D'Antoni was fired by New York. New York was down 17 on Tuesday in Brooklyn and found a way to eke out a 100-97 win. Carmelo Anthony erupted for a season-high 45 points to carry the Knicks to their seventh win in eight games. Anthony will meet Kobe Bryant, who scored a season-high 42 points against the Cavaliers and has averaged 35.5 points in his last six games. The Knicks will look to continue the Lakers' woes but on national TV, expect Kobe and Dwight Howard to show they aren't done-yet.

2012 NBA FREE PICK: LOS ANGELES LAKERS +6.5
