10* NBA Game of the Week
(NBA) Phoenix vs. LA Lakers, 12/10/2013 5:30 PM, Score: 114 - 108
Point Spread: 3.00 | -110.00 Phoenix (Away)
Result: Win
The Phoenix Suns (11-9) come off a 106-97 win at home over the Toronto Raptors. Markieff Morris had 22 points and 11 rebounds while P.J. Tucker had 18 points and 13 rebounds versus his old team that drafted him. The LA Lakers (10-10) come off a 94-106 loss at home to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Kobe Bryant had 9 points, 8 rebounds and 8 turnovers in his much talked about return.
The Suns are a very dangerous team this year and profitable going 11-2 ATS as the underdog this season and 9-2 ATS on the road. The Lakers are still trying to get used to life with Kobe Bryant back in the lineup and I expect some more struggles here. Pau Gasol has been in a slump, averaging 11.3 points and 30.9 percent shooting in the last four games. Los Angeles is the worst defensive team in the Western Conference, allowing 103.0 points per game, and it's given up at least 100 in four straight contests for the first time this season. Grab the points with Phoenix here tonight.
