Oklahoma City Thunder at LA Lakers NBA Playoffs Game 3 Against the Spread Free Play
The LA Lakers try to save this series and their season, Game 3 is on Friday May 18, 2012. Tip time is scheduled for 8:00 PM EST at the Staples Center. Game will be televised on ESPN as the second of Friday night double header.
Thunder lead the series 2-0 straight up, 1-1 Against the Spread, and 1-1 Over/Under. Season series is also owned by the Thunder 4-1 straight up, 3-2 ATS, and 2-3 Over/Under. Current betting line for game 3, LA Lakers -2.5 and Total of 191.5.
Tonight we have a very big Game 3 match up between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers. This series could and probably should have a much different look to it as the Lakers led the Thunder 75-68 with 2 minutes remaining in the game only to watch the Thunder score the last 9 points of the game and come away with an improbable 77-75 victory. The Lakers played about a perfect game for 46 minute, but unfortunately, that's not good enough and they will need a solid performance tonight to beat this OKC squad.
The Thunder have yet to be beat in the 2012 NBA Playoffs so far. Led by Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden, the Thunder are a very difficult team to beat. They have solid big men in Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins who make it difficult for even the Lakers two stud big men. This is going to be a very hard team to beat 4 out of 7 times in a series and although the Lake Show will probably win game 3, the odds of them taking down this Thunder team is still highly unlikely.
Now we take a look at the Lakers, who have to be absolutely devastated after handing away Game 2. But this is a very experienced and veteran team who will be ready for Game 3 and is going to lay it ALL on the line. Look for Kobe Bryant to play his best game of the series here in Game 3 and for Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol to be major contributors as well. This is a do or die game for the Lake Show and I expect them to come in highly focused and motivated, ready to deliver a winning performance.
LA Lakers -130: Tonight my Free NBA Pick is the Los Angeles Lakers -130 on the Money Line against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Look for Kobe and Company to really come out and take control of this game and cruise to a victory. I look for the Lakers to own the boards in Game 3 and really try and send a statement to the Thunder that this series isn't over yet. Like I previously stated, this is a do or die game for the Lakers and I believe that we see an A+ performance and a victory for the home team in the Staples Center. Take the Lake Show to the Bank tonight!
