With the Clippers banged up, the Lakers have a chance at a win. If Chris Paul is out, the Clippers might be forced to quicken the pace, playing right into the Lakers’ hands. Tease the over and the Lakers with your NBA Picks.
With Blake Griffin out and Chris Paul banged up, it remains to be seen what is going to happen in this one. However, the Lakers should be up for this game and while I don't like taking the points, I do like it in a teaser.
Teasing the Lakers to +11 and taking the over at 208 ½ could be a fine play if the Lakers man up and play this game at their pace. If Paul is out this could have even more value because the Clippers' half court offense will be gone, forcing them to push the pace.
