Los Angeles Lakers continue on the road and will visit the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. This is the second time these teams face off this season and the Lakers won the last game 122-109 in L.A.
LOS ANGELES LAKERS
The Lakers have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are only 10-23 on the road with a 30-40 record overall ranking fourth in the Pacific Division. They faced the Raptors yesterday and LeBron James scored 19 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, Russell Westbrook had 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists, and the Lakers snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Raptors 128-123 on Friday night.
James is averaging 29.7 points, 8.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists for the Lakers. Malik Monk is averaging 2.5 made 3-pointers over the last 10 games for Los Angeles.
In their last 10 games the Lakers are 3-7, averaging 114.7 points, 40.9 rebounds, 24.2 assists, 7.2 steals and 4.6 blocks per game while shooting 49.5% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 122.3 points.
The Wizards have lost 6 games in a row and are 17-18 at home this season with a 29-40 record overall ranking 4th in the Southeast Division. Washington are 7-18 against opponents in the Western Conference.
Kyle Kuzma is averaging 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Wizards. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.2 points and 6.6 assists over the last 10 games for Washington.
In their last 10 games the Wizards are 2-8, averaging 110.3 points, 40.5 rebounds, 26.4 assists, 6.1 steals and 5.8 blocks per game while shooting 50.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.2 points per game.
LA Lakers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games.
LA Lakers are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
Washington are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of Washington's last 9 games.
The Lakers ended their losing streak after beating the Raptors yesterday and that should get the team a little confidence back although they have been terrible on the road this season. The Wizards are on a 6 game losing streak and they just want the season to be over. I'm not gonna trust in any of these teams to get the win so I'm looking at the total. With both teams struggling defensively I think this game will go Over.
PICK: Over 228 (-110)
