Lakers -4 vs Pacers

2 units    8:30pm ET     tournament final

The Pacers are a dangerous team but the Lakers are playing on a another level right now and their size can give the Pacers problems. 44 point win for the Lakers vs the Pelicans, Brandon Ingram had 9 points, and the Lakers were up 15 on the Suns late in that game. The Lakers defense is better than both the Bucks and the Pacers so the Lakers can give the Pacers a tougher time than Milwaukee did. No Jalen Smith or Nembhard off the bench for the Pacers tonight and the Lakers with Rui, Jaxson Hayes and Vanderbilt off the bench is a lot of size. More experienced team and better defense looking to make a statement in one of Lebron’s last years and the Lakers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 wins.
