Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat
Los Angeles Lakers's Latest Performance :
The Lakers are unstoppable right now as they are now on a five-game winning streak as they starting to climb themselves up the Western Conference standings. The Lakers are starting to play well together as Luke Walton has found the Lakers winning lineup. Going up against the Heat the Lakers will have to rely on the Lakers backcourt to contain Richardson and Dragic. Lonzo is very underrated as a defender as he does a good job guarding the best player on the opposing team. He needs to learn to be selfish and look to attack the rim with Rondo out expect Ball to be on the floor more and his scoring numbers will be going up. The Lakers will hope to keep their undefeated streak alive since acquiring Chandler on to the team as he will have to guard Whiteside.
Miami Heat 's Latest Performance :
The Heat was not able to complete the comeback against the Pacers as Oladipo sink a three late to seal the win at home. Leading the way for the Heat was Josh Richardson as he scored 28 points shooting 10-for-16 from the floor including a career-best seven triples. He is having an incredible season as Miami’s leader on both offense and defense. Tyler Johnson couldn’t follow up his 24 point effort as he was only able to score ten points. Whiteside chipped in with 12 points and had 17 boards on the night. He has to play well if the Heat wants to come up on top against the Lakers. Goran Dragic will look to bounce back after being held to only eight points. He will be going up against Lonzo Ball in the next game.

Against The Spread Selection: Los Angeles Lakers
My reason for the pick :
The Lakers will win their 6th game in a row as they will take down the Heat on the road. The scary thing about the Lakers is that they are going to keep getting better more they play together. It is their first year with LeBron and he has already shown in many occasion how valuable he is on the team. He makes the game easier for everyone around him plus he can look to score at will. For the Heat it will be tough for them to find offense since Richardson should have a tough time against the Lakers backcourt.
