Joe D'Amico's NBA 78% Full Court Press Winner
LA Lakers vs. Portland,
01/05/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 96 - 107
Point Spread: -3½/-104 Portland
Today's winner is Portland over Los Angeles. This is my NBA Full Court Press Winner.
Despite being back at full strength, with Andrew Bynum returning from suspension, L.A. just doesn't have the same look this season. The once-feared transition game is a distant memory for the Lakers. They are 4-3 overall, including an 0-2 road record both SU and ATS. Over the years, the Kobe Bryant Lakers haven't had much success playing in Portland, sporting a 6-23 record. Overall, Los Angeles is 4-16 in Portland since 2000. Talk is that Andrew Bynum is WAY out of shape. At 4-1, the Blazers boast the best record in the West since March 2001. As long as Marcus Camby is in the lineup, the Big Man will hamper Bynum and Gasol in the post. The Lakers are 10-26 ATS their L36 games played at the Blazers, 0-4 ATS their L4 road games, and 2-7 ATS their L9 games played against the West. Take Portland. Thank you.
