Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers played without LeBron James on Saturday night at Oracle Arena. They held it together against the two-time defending champs and kept it close until the Warriors went on a late spurt to make the final margin 14 points, 115–101.
All five starters scored in double-figures and were led by Brandon Ingram’s 20. Rajon Rondo had 11 assists and Lance Stephenson played a nice game off the bench, scoring ten points with six assists and four rebounds.
Rookie Moritz Wagner also got some significant minutes with James out. Wagner has played well in 19 games so far this season. On Saturday, he made all three of his shots for seven points, grabbed three rebounds and took care of the ball, without one turnover.
The loss did drop the Lakers behind Sacramento and into fourth in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division. They’ll have to jump two teams in the division (Clippers and Kings) to get into the 8-seed in the Western Conference Playoffs, as the standings are today.
The Pacers got their first win since Victor Oladipo’s knee injury, winning in Miami, 95–88. It was the type of game we expected and figured Indiana would be able to win: basically a fight between two blunt knives.
Indiana is just 1–4 since the injury and doesn’t figure to stick with Milwaukee, Toronto, Philly and Boston; in fact, it has already dropped off the pace, albeit just barely.
At the time of the injury, the Pacers’ lead over sixth-place Brooklyn was big. It still is, though not quite as large as it was. Indy has a six-game lead over the Nets and, while the lead will likely be less when the season ends, the Nets would have to continue playing really well all the way through to catch the Pacers.
That could mean the four-seed in the East is perceived as extra valuable, just as the seven-seed was a year ago, which turned out to be a false notion.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction: the Lakers get a road win.
I do think the Lakers win with LeBron back. I’m not sure it will be by much more than four or five, though. Indy still plays hard defense and good team ball.
