Uh-oh, LA… The Lakers are a half-game back of the Utah Jazz for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference, and they are only a game and a half ahead of the Mavericks coming into this one. This is a game that Dallas probably has to have if it wants to stay in this race to get into the second season for the rest of the year. F Dirk Nowitzki is playing great ball at the moment, and he is coming off of a game in which he dropped 35 on the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers though, are reeling. They’ve lost four out of six, and the only victories that they have amassed in that stretch were both struggles against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings. They haven’t won a game at home in weeks, and they are playing this game without G Steve Nash and F Metta World Peace. F Pau Gasol is back in the fold, but all season long, he and C Dwight Howard just haven’t made it work together. This just isn’t a pretty situation right now in Tinseltown, and we think that the Lakers are going to get taken advantage of and eventually booed off of their home court on Tuesday night against the Mavs. If you’re a Laker Hater, this might be can’t miss TV.
Mavericks @ Lakers Pick: Dallas Mavericks +3
Mavericks @ Lakers Prediction: Dallas 108 – Los Angeles 101
