There was nothing much Trae Young could do to prevent that massive loss at the hands of the Clippers. The home team shot 53 percent from the field and 51 percent from beyond the arc. Paul George recorded 37 points in just 20 minutes of play. It was really a bad defensive job for the Hawks, who were allowing just 111.73 points prior to Saturday’s game.

James finished with 29 points and 11 assists, while Davis chipped in with 17 points on 5-for-12 shooting.
Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (26.3 PPG, 10.4 RPG, 3.3 APG), LeBron James (23.9 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 11.1 APG), Kyle Kuzma (13.7 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 0.6 APG)

Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Lakers Betting Picks
The Hawks will continue to miss the service of second-year gunner Kevin Huerter due to a shoulder injury. The Lakers, on the other hand, could wait a little longer for Avery Bradley’s return as doctors discovered a hairline fracture in his right leg. The NBA odds favorite Lakers are still loaded with weapons from top to bottom.
Moneyline: The Lakers have been pretty dominant against Eastern Conference teams, winning three of four against East squads with the exception of the Toronto Raptors.
ATS: The 13.5 point handicap on the Lakers could open the door for Trae Young and the Hawks to steal an ATS win before they leave Los Angeles. Prior to that humiliating loss to the Clippers, the Hawks covered and exceeded a 10.5-point spread to beat the Denver Nuggets.
TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the total, which opened at 220 points. To start with, the Hawks are already a low-scoring club at 106 PPG. Add the fact that the Lakers are limiting opponents to just 100 points, and you will have a low-scoring game at Staples.
Score Prediction: 102-96 Lakers
