The Los Angeles Lakers are at home, and they should be up for this game after what happened the last time these teams clashed. However, in what world can we lay double-digit chalk with a Lakers team that has had to work for everything and has countless bad losses? Nothing for these Lakers has come easy, and they just lost a triple-overtime game to the Kings. The Lakers lose at home by an average of 1.9 points. Let's also not forget the Pistons were beating up on the Lakers before the LeBron incident. Give me the Pistons and the points.
