San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

I'm not excited to back the San Antonio Spurs as much as the next guy, but laying big numbers with the Lakers is even less attractive. You're never sure which Lakers team is going to show up from night to night, and they're on the end of a back to back with possibly no LeBron again. The Spurs did beat the Lakers back in December as a 5 point underdog, for what that's worth. Lots of points in this contest. It's Spurs or pass for me.
