The Philadelphia 76ers have been a bit shaky over the last week or so, and I'm not thrilled to lay big chalk with them on the road. With that said, the Los Angeles Lakers have been disappointing all season long, and they have a history of rolling over against quality competition. We've been burned by the Lakers all season long, and it's to the point where I'm just not going to back them until they can show us consistent progress. It's the 76ers or pass for me.
