This is an interesting play
What will actually happen tonight? Will the Lakers play their hats off to honor Kobe or will they be in shock and the Blazers will rather display respect for Kobe by offering a worthy resistance? What the lines say? Well, according to the line change the Lakers are supposed to destroy the Blazers by 14 points or more. Most bettors do not believe it and support the Blazers. The Totals line also has changed gaining 2.5 points on top of the opening line of 228.5 and is now at 231. Does that mean the teams will be playing no defense all star like game? For that over to happen the refs have to be constantly sending the players to the line. That won't happen. The teams will display the usual 8 and 24 second violations and all points out towards the under.
For me there is a great chance that the "rusted" Lakers will succumb in to the Blazers who will play flawless basketball honoring Kobe. After all - Kobe was universal player and not only a Laker.
