After defeating the Utah Jazz, the Los Angeles Lakers will try to capitalize on the win as they take on the Indiana Pacers later tonight at Crypto.com Arena.
Robert Horry, who won five of his seven NBA championships as a Laker, is confident that the purple and gold will take the win.
“[The Lakers] are going to beat the Pacers because the Pacers are one of those teams where everybody on the team wants to be traded,” Horry said on Spectrum SportsNet.
“So they are not ready to play. Not just because of that but they’re going to learn from [the Jazz game] and they’re going to move forward.”
The Lakers are currently 8th in the Western Conference with 22 wins and 22 losses, while the Pacers are 13th in the East with a 15-29 record and have lost 10 of their last 11 games.
Ahead of tonight’s game, the Lakers are considered favorites amongst bookmakers, with NBA lines site Betway pricing LA at 1.55 to beat the Pacers. The odds for Indiana to win this game is at 2.75. Draw is 14.00.
