Let me just start out by saying the Wizards are 0-10 on the road so far this season and have only covered 1 of those road games. In the past 10 days the Wizards have played 6 games with 4 of them being on the road and I do not think the Wizards will be ready for this game versus the reigning two time NBA champions.
This spread is very high, but after the Lakers had just gone on a 4 game losing streak and snapping that streak on Friday versus the Kings, the Lakers have rested all weekend and will be ready to flex their muscles versus the Wizards on Tuesday
The Wizards have been outrebounded in their last 4 games by a combined 42 rebounds and tonight with Pau Gasol on the other side of the ball I expect the Lakers to control the glass and get out to a quick start. In the Lakers last 10 games overall, 6 of them have been on the road, they will be happy to finally be home for back to back home games and will be back to their comfortable ways
John Wall is currently on his first western conference road trip of his NBA career after losing by 17 in Phoenix on Sunday Night; I am leaning on the Lakers in this one.
