Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs


5:30 PM Pacific time / 8:30 PM Eastern Time

AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX

TV:   Local: TWC Sportsnets, TWC Deportes (Los Angeles), KENS5 HD (San Antonio) National: NBA League Pass

Line: Los Angeles Lakers +17.5

2013-14 Records:

Los Angeles Lakers: 22-43, 14th in the Western Conference (tied with the Utah Jazz)

San Antonio Spurs: 48-16, 1st in the Western Conference

Record vs. each other (2013-14 season): Spurs are 1-0 versus the Lakers this season

  • Talk about 2 teams going in completely different directions; the Lakers are losers of 4 of their last 5 games and are currently tied for last place in the Western Conference with the Utah Jazz. The San Antonio Spurs on the other hand, are hot, having won 8 games in a row and holding the best record in the entire NBA.
  • The Lakers thankfully only have 17 games remaining in this dreadful season; however, the bad news is that 3 of those games will come against the San Antonio Spurs, the best team, record-wise, in the entire NBA.
  • The Lakers are a combined 33.5 point underdogs in the last 2 games. The Lakers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder yesterday by 29, 131-102, which was much greater than the 16.5 points that the odds makers had projected. The Lakers are an eye-popping 17.5 point underdogs in tonight’s game against the Spurs.
  • A big reason that the Lakers are massive underdogs in tonight’s game, outside of the fact that they are playing a far superior team in their building on the 2nd night of a back to back, the Spurs have owned the Lakers in recent history. The Spurs have won the last 5 games against the Lakers and 9 of their last 10 meetings.
