The over is 5-1 in Lakers last 6 overall. The Pacers are 0-5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles.
I've said time and time again this season that I'm not trying to back the Los Angeles Lakers, but every once in a while we get thrown into these tough spots. The Indiana Pacers are banged up and playing brutal basketball, so it's impossible to get behind them with any confidence. The Pacers are losing their last five games by an average of 6.8 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 4.2 points. Yikes. It's the Lakers or pass for me, as this is a game they should win.
