Lakers listed at -6 vs. Thunder
Wed, Aug 5th 8:29am EDT
The Los Angeles Lakers will look to make it two in a row with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder have been one of the more impressive teams in the league this season after dealing away both Paul George and Russell Westbrook. Chris Paul has revitalized his career, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has proved to the world why the Thunder were so high on his talents. Having locked up the top seed in the West, the Los Angeles Lakers have nothing to play for except to get themselves into playoff form. There is no home court advantage to speak of in the bubble, so passing Milwaukee for the top seed in the NBA may not be enough for Los Angeles to risk giving heavy minutes to their stars. Los Angeles won all three of their meetings against OKC this season. However, Oklahoma City covered in two of those three contests.
