The Lakers are still making the push towards the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference playoffs, and there is a great opportunity tonight to make up a game on the Utah Jazz, who have to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Winning out might ultimately be the only real option here for the Lakers, who need to essentially close two games on Utah in a span of just seven games. Perhaps they could afford a slip or two, but to do so to a team like New Orleans would be devastating. Los Angeles really isn’t playing bad basketball at the moment. It was able to beat the Memphis Grizzlies at home last Tuesday, and that game came on the heels of covers against both the Dallas Mavericks and the Sacramento Kings. Generally speaking, since the middle of March, the Lakers have played pretty well in situations where they really should be winning, and in spite of the fact that the Hornets have a tendency of being a bit stingy, we do think that this is a game that the boys from Tinseltown are going to ultimately win by double digits. Anything less than finishing the season sweep and moving to 3-1 ATS in this series this year would be a huge disappointment.
