Notably, they were losing at the end of the third quarter and it was close the whole way.
The question is: how long will this continue?
Also: when will this predictably happen? What was the exact trigger?
I just happened to start Laker watch at game 1. I saw that the two previous games they had failed to cover the spread. So since the break they are 2-2 ATS but since I started watching, they are 0-2.
still, I would suspect they will have trouble on this road trip and for a few more games fail to cover the spread, perhaps even losing a game or two.
