Why Bet on the Los Angeles Lakers?

For NBA pundits the best chance for the Los Angeles Lakers to win something this season is the InSeason Tournament and it seems that the group of players understands the same. After taking out Devin Booker and Kevin Durant’s Phoenix Suns in the quarterfinals, the Lakers defeated the Pelicans 133-89 with a great showing from LeBron James. 

The 38-year-old closed the night with 30 points, five rebounds and eight assists. He commanded a steamroller that settled the game in three quarters when the difference was greater than 30 points. The ‘King’ is playing superlatively and when he is like that he is unstoppable. But Anthony Davis also had a good night, with 16 points and 15 rebounds, while Austin Reaves finished with 17 points. 

The big key for the Lakers is a combination of James’ offensive rhythm and great defensive work. In the absence of more star players, the physical play is fundamental. 

The only casualty for Los Angeles is point guard Gabe Vincent, who is a rotation player.

Why Bet on the Indiana Pacers?

The Indiana Pacers are a great team in the Eastern Conference, but they were not candidates to get into the InSeason Tournament finals, much less eliminating such heavy opponents. In the quarterfinals, they took out the Boston Celtics, and in the semifinals, they overcame the Milwaukee Bucks, another favorite in the quest for this title, 128-119. 

Once again, Tyrese Haliburton was a great figure for the Pacers. The point guard contributed 27 points and 17 assists, in addition to the three-pointer that sealed the game. The star of this franchise managed the rhythm of the duel and was able to improve the performance of his teammates. For example, Myles Turner scored 26 points, taking advantage of every pick & roll with Haliburton to break the Bucks’ very good zone defense. Obi Toppin had 14 points and Isaiah Jackson had another 11. 

Whoever wants to slow Indiana down will have to find a way to weaken Haliburton’s sidekicks and, above all, avoid the back-and-forth game, because these Pacers are fast. 

Jalen Smith is the only casualty of this team for the finals in Las Vegas.
