Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

This is a game the Los Angeles Lakers should win at home with the rest advantage, but laying big chalk with them isn't something I'm trying to do. The Lakers have had issues maintaining success all year, and now they have a questionable Davis and LeBron. The Atlanta Hawks have injuries of their own, and they're on the end of a back to back, but they just mopped the floor with the Clippers last night. The Hawks also smoked the Lakers back in late January, a game where they scored 138 points on 52 percent shooting. Two teams fighting for layoff positioning, as they're both in the 10th seed of their respective conferences. Give me the points with the Hawks.
