How the L.A. Lakers Got Here

The Los Angeles Lakers are the reigning NBA Champions but have been ravaged by injuries like no other team, with their two best players — who are also two of the best players in the entire league — missing extended stretches of time.

Anthony Davis tried his best to lift the Lakers down the stretch and turned in some big-time performances, including back-to-back wins over the Suns (42 points) and Knicks (20 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists).

The Lakers have been one of the more unimpressive teams against the spread (ATS). Despite their lackluster record ATS, they did show tremendous fight on the road, where they fared better.

With their elite defense and myriad of injuries, the Lakers were always a team to monitor for game totals. Frank Vogel’s group was No. 1 to the under this season, going 41-28-2 according to our data at Action Labs.

With Dennis Schroder also back, the Lakers would be the deepest team in the Western Conference if they advance past the play-in.
