What a big win against the Celtic ass on Saturday. The Lakers now turn their attention to Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks, who have proven themselves to be a pretty good squad in the Eastern Conference.
No big rivalry or storylines headed into this game, but we should see some pretty fun basketball ahead.
Lakers’ injury report: LeBron James (left ankle sprain) is questionable vs. Cleveland. Anthony Davis (right ankle confusion) is probable.
Kostas Antetokounmpo (right knee patellar tendonitis) and Jared Dudley (right calf soreness) remain out.

No changes for the Lakers injury report tonight, and LeBron James and Anthony Davis will both likely play and start.
Hawks' injury report for tomorrow vs. Lakers:
Onyeka Okongwu (left Achilles soreness) is probable.
Trae Young (left knee soreness) is probable.
Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kris Dunn, and De’Andre Hunter (right knee discomfort) are out.

Hawks are without quite a few members of the rotation in Bogdanovic, Dunn and Hunter. Young is listed as probably and will likely play, along with the Hawks first round pick from this year in Onyeka Okongwu.
This is a pretty favorable injury report for the Lakers but quite unfortunate for fans, as Hunter and Bogdanovic are both very fun players. (I did not realize Dunn was on the Hawks, you can cancel me for that.)
Lakers (-5); O/U 219.5; Moneyline -195
Man, I hate these long road trips. Every day that passes on the road, the less confident I am in any certain outcomes for bets. That being said… I’m weirdly confident about the five following suggestions.
No player props have been released yet, but just bet the over for LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I’m feeling a big takeover game from both of them as the rest of the team starts to wear down on the road trip.
Lakers -5 and the moneyline should be very safe bets as well, I’ll also advise the over, even though the Hawks and Lakers are both top 10 defenses in the NBA (yes, you read that correctly).
