Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost their last three games and things are not getting better with their current record at 29-40. This has been probably the worst season that LeBron James has been in and his motivation to play in the next games is that he will be surpassing Karl Malone in the NBA’s all-time scoring list. He needs at least two more games to reach that and other than that, the Lakers are terrible. Russell Westbrook looks unmotivated and far from his MVP form while Anthony Davis is still not showing signs that he will be coming back very soon from the ankle injury.
