Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

I don't want to lay decent sized chalk with the Los Angeles Lakers but backing the Nets in any shape or form isn't an option. The Nets have lost 9 of their last 10 games, and a team that was covering numbers left and right is now 19-19-2 ATS on the season. The Lakers are fresh off a pair of wins over playoff teams, and they need to take advantage of spots like this to chip away in the standings. It's Lakers or pass for me.
