The Lakers despite not playing at their best still earned a 5-point victory in game 1 against the Utah Jazz. The team shot 53.2% from the floor and did not hit their three pointers in the process. With injuries to Mehmet Okur and Andrei Kirilenko the Jazz is having match up problems on the court in this series, as the Lakers possess just too many weapons. The Lakers bring a bettor performance in game 2 and that will lead to a point spread cover on Tuesday night.
Bet LA Lakers –6 points
