Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers are hanging on to their position in the NBA Western Conference standings at 31-18. This team is now placed fourth and are sandwiched by the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets. A loss here would mean that they may fall to fifth place and the Nuggets get above them while a win would make them overtake the Clippers. Kyle Kuzma is showing that he can also lead the team by scoring a season-high of 30 points along with five rebounds and three assists against the Sacramento Kings. Dennis Shroeder chipped in with 17 points and the Lakers are expecting Andre Drummond to come back from the injury.
