The Los Angeles Lakers have killed me in the favorite role a lot already this season, and they've had to work for everything this season. LeBron is also still out, which doesn't help matters. With that said, the Charlotte Hornets continue to pile up the losses, aren't playing defense, and now they're on the end of a back to back. It's only a bucket we're being asked to lay. Give me the Lakers and the cheap price at home.
