OKC is in LA the night before too, taking on a Clippers team that is feeling good.
The Western conference is full of road trips that are murder and now you can add SoCal to that list.
The Lakers have the best record in the league right now and have only lost once at home this season.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder beat Philly in OT on Friday but were off over the weekend. They take on the Clippers Monday night.
This is a back to back on the road but there is no travel required as both L.A. teams play at the Staples Center.
Oklahoma City is 0-2 in back to back situations this season. However, both games were ATS wins. That is a bit surprising given that this team is hardly blessed with great depth. It does not look like a great spot to add another win as the Lakers are playing great ball right now.
Heading into Monday action the Thunder were scoring 107ppg and giving up 107ppg. If they are going to win they are going to have to make a dent in one of those averages. Maybe both.
A veteran like Chris Paul could be a difference-maker here. He is familiar with playing in L.A. and has an ability to control the flow of the game.
The line for this one might not come out till the morning.
Los Angeles Lakers
L.A. has won four in a row and are 11-2 to start the season but they are still a work in progress.
The Lakers are still trying to figure out how all the pieces best fit together, especially with Kyle Kuzma now back from an injury. His absence let things develop between LeBron James and Anthony Davis but he is much closer to them in impact than the rest of the team.
Rajon Rondi is back too and I have always liked his game. At this point, he is never going to be a fearsome shooter but he distributes the ball well and still has those long arms on defense. He will help the club and should probably start.
Thus far the Lakers have gotten by with below-average three-point shooting. I am not sure they can have the same level of success they have been without that improving.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
Tired legs could be a factor here but so will the fact that the Lakers are just a lot better than OKC.
Somehow the Thunder will need to ramp up their offense for two nights in a row and that doesn’t seem likely. The question is how does that line come out.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted (Like Lakers up to -10)
If the Thunder beat the Clippers than this becomes even more of a fade spot. Though I doubt that happens.
