Milwuakee (34-36) begins a series of four home games, today received a visit from Los Angeles. It is important for them to win today against a team that also needs the win. In this season have met 2 times and both teams have split wins. To Milwuakee this game is key because face playooff team and a victory would lift the morale of the team. Milwuakee after playing four games at home, will have six home games were in the last eight of the rest of the season, I see very difficult for Milwuakee left out of the postseason for Philadelphia this to 6.5 games back of the eighth place to classify the postseason.
Los Angeles (37-35) have all the experience and perception of the people that it is a playoff team, I do not think, just them and their remaining 10 games in a conference as competitive as the Western Conference will not be easy for them when they have to Utah, Dallas and Portland behind them, the prestige and history could be back this season when for the first time in many years does not qualify for the postseason.
LA LAKERS 208
Why open Milwuakee -2? ... +2 and now this? ...
In the last 16 games Los Angeles has a margin of victory of -3 to -6 Milwuakee points ahead in the season in the 2 -3 and -2 on Milwuakee clashes. It seems that Los Angeles should give a margin of points in this game.
