Joe D's NBA 66% Crash The Boards Winner
LA Lakers vs. Golden State,
03/27/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 104 - 101
Point Spread: -5½/-110 LA Lakers
Today's winner is Los Angeles over Golden State. This is my Crash the Boards Winner.
Los Angeles has won 13 of the L14 meetings over Golden State. In the Lakers last outing, Kobe Bryant was benched by coach Mike Brown for several minutes. I expect the super star to come out today with a vengeance and prove a point. Since adding Ramon Sessions to the lineup, LA has prospered. Four players are posting between 14-28 PPG. Bynum and Gasol are teaming up for 22.7 RPG. Andrew Bynum is back at full force since returning from suspension. In the Lakers 97-90 victory over the Warriors in their only meeting this season, Bynum had a tough time facing Kwame Brown, who has since departed for Milwaukee. The Warriors are struggling, as they have dropped 6 of their L8. Bogut and Curry are still out, while Biedrins is doubtful and starting Guard, Nate Robinson is banged-up (check status). Los Angeles leads the Pacific but needs to make a move on the West's top two teams, Oklahoma City and San Antonio. This is a prime opportunity for LA. The Lakers are 4-1 ATS their L5 games played on the road while the Warriors are 2-6 ATS their L8 games played as a home 'dog. Take Los Angeles. Thank you.
