It’s been extremely rare this season, but the Lakers come in off a win last time out. They’ll look to make it two in a row when they take on the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.
Kobe Bryant has had very mixed results on this current Lakers road trip, but did hit the game winning shot against Washington last time out.
Atlanta has played .500 ball over their last 8 as they’ve alternated wins and losses throughout that span.
Los Angeles Lakers
Every road game the Lakers play in should have an electrifying atmosphere as Kobe Bryant could be making his final stop in that city.
Bryant has had very mixed results through the first 3 stints of this road trip.
Kobe and the Lakers started things off in Indiana. Bryant struggled all night long and came up short on a buzzer beater attempt. He then shot just 4 of 17 from behind the arc in the Lakers loss to Phili. Finally though, Bryant broke through with the game winning shot, looking like vintage Kobe, in the win over the Washington.
While Bryant has been overshadowing everything, F Julius Randle continues to play some solid ball in his first full season. Randle has recorded double-doubles in 3 straight games now.
Los Angeles is an abysmal 2-9 SU on the road this season with a 4-7 ATS record in those 11 games.
The Hawks come in off a disappointing loss last time out.
They led Toronto, at home, by 17 points heading into the 4th quarter. They saw that lead completely evaporate as the Raptors outscored them 39-20. The Hawks failed to get back on defense and couldn’t generate any good shots on Wednesday.
The Hawks have alternated wins and losses over their last 8 games and have found the key to their success…score 100 points. Atlanta has reached the 100 plateau in all 4 wins during this span, but have failed to reach 100 in all 4 losses.
C Al Horford has had no problem scoring as he has put in double digits for 21 straight games now.
