Steve Nash will not play tonight versus the Thunder. Lakers are now without Kobe, Gasol, Young, Farmer, Meeks, Henry and now Nash.
Steve Blake said that he expects to play versus the Thunder tonight.

Man those are some injuries and now the Thunder coming to Los Angelas; I don't know how this could end well??

I was going to caution Beware the Double Digit Home Dog but looking through their histories this season and OKC has been a double digit road fav twice and covered both times and Lakers have been double digit home dog once and did not cover. Like OKC here they don't take it easy on teams

Actually there is something on the line for the Lakers tonight:
a loss tonight would mean their 7th straight loss at home; which would be a new record as far as I know. They now tied the 1992-93 team which also lost 6 straight at home; but I assume the Lakers have other problems to deal with.

The only positive I see for the Lakers right now is Chris Kaman.
I hope the Thunder will take this game as seriously as any other game and are not already in the all-star break from the mental point of view otherwise a backdoor cover might have a chance to cover the Lakers +  plus the points.

How bout the 1H -6.5 ? Last 2 were up by 15 but in OKC not sure if starters will even play beyond 3rd Q is my reasoning

The more I think about the under the more I like it. I can't picture what or who the Lakers offence will run off of. Pick and rolls with Marshall, Kamen and Blake?

they just chilled all game long vs the knicks on Sunday because it was an early morning game.  

The Utah Jazz put a complete stop to the Lakers offense 2 nights ago. the only positive lately for them, was Kaman, but who did he really face and he has been force fed the ball as the only big with any offensive game still healthy. He hasn't faced anything like hes about to.  I really like the under here. The thunder are going to either try to get this one over quick, or just relax all game and not score.  Either way I believe this game is set up to go under.

My money is on the Thunder and a huge game from Durant going into the break.  Lakers are just too banged up.  OKC -11

The only positive I see for the Lakers right now is Chris Kaman.

 

he started out slow but scored like 10 straight points

way to go blackballer
