The Lakers have to be the worst team in the NBA right now. Even the Nets can make a game that should be a blowout interesting, but the Lakers have not covered a spread in almost a month. They won’t be covering Thursday in Phoenix, either. 

Lakers vs. Suns

For some reason, no one has told the Suns they are tanking. Despite trading away P.J. Tucker at the deadline and effectively shutting down Tyson Chandler, the Suns are rolling after covering four in a row and winning three out of their last four SU.

The Lakers, on the other hand, have been in full tank mode for a while and fading them has become a regular occurrence here on the NBA Picks of the Day. Do you think I’m going to stop tonight? The answer is of course no!

The Lakers are horrific right now. Outside of their two young studs, the rest of their team has underperformed this season. Brandon Ingram is starting to make people wonder whether or not he’ll develop into the next Kevin Durant, and with not a lot of scoring options the Lakers have simply been struggling.

The day before the All Star break, the Suns destroyed the Lakers at home and I see a similar result tonight. The Suns’ young frontcourt looks like a force, and with Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe playing well the Lakers can not match their power both in the starting five and off the bench.
