Washington Wizards vs Los Angeles Lakers (By: Khum)
Washington Wizards - Los Angeles Lakers
The Wizards sent Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers to Phoenix in exchange for Trevor Ariza.
The latter comes back to his former team and to his good friend John Wall.
This move should help with the locker room culture, as Ariza is a respected veteran leader and especially a guy very respected by Wall.
Thus being said, I still don't trust this Washington team till they prove I should.
They lost the last 4 games both SU and ATS and now they host a red hot Lakers team which looks more and more oiled. Lebron and co. are playing a hyperfast transition basketball and they keep on developing in terms of chemistry and schemes. They look better than anyone would expect at this point of the season and after resting their main players for a good part of the last night blowout in Charlotte, where they won 128 - 100, I expect them to roll over the Wizards as well.
It's Sunday and it should be a less high scoring game that bookies seem to expect, but I find better value on the visiting side than in a total which, at some point, could prove tricky.
Let's go green!
