NBA Predictions: Los Angeles Lakers @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Date: Tuesday, March 5th, 9:30 ET
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -9
Lakers vs. Thunder NBA TV Schedule: TNT
The Lakers are back to .500, and they are going to want to stay that way in this one. They were able to get the best of these two teams when they met back at the end of January, and the argument could be made that that was the turning point of the season. This is a very potential playoff matchup at some point, and LA is going to want to prove that it has the goods to stick around with what is perceived to be one of the best teams in the league. We know that there are going to be plenty of points scored in this game, just as there were the first (222) and second (217) times that these two got it on this season. Oklahoma City’s offense is playing out of this world at the moment, scoring at least 103 in six straight games and at least 119 in three of those six. The Lakers had put up at least 103 as well in five in a row before edging out the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. We think that the offensive-minded Lakers are going to try their best to run with the Thunder in a game where there should be at least 180 shots and at least 220 points as a result.
Lakers @ Thunder NBA Pick: Over 214
Lakers @ Thunder Score Prediction: Thunder 112 – Lakers 109
