I'm not thrilled about backing the Lakers, as they don't look great, and they've burned me a lot already this season. The Lakers have serious flaws. However, the Spurs have struggled big time on the defensive end up to this point, and they haven't been great in the home underdog role dating back to last season. I simply need more points if I'm going to consider the Spurs in this spot. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Lakers, but I don't love it.
