NBA Odds: Lakers-Sixers on Saturday Night

NBA Odds: Sixers Host Lakers on ABC

LeBron James will be back in the national spotlight this Saturday when his Los Angeles Lakers visit the Philadelphia 76ers, live on ABC on 8:30 PM ET. The Lakers are the top team in the Western Conference standings; the Sixers are in a three-way dogfight with Toronto and Boston for the Atlantic Division.

With James leading the way, the Lakers are +275 favorites at press time to win the NBA title – and they should be relatively healthy for this contest with Anthony Davis (tailbone) and Rajon Rondo (finger) coming off the injured list on Monday. Philadelphia may or may not have Joel Embiid (hand) back in time for Saturday; they’re fifth on the championship futures market at +1100, well behind the Milwaukee Bucks at +400 to represent the East in the NBA Finals.

This will be the first of two regular-season games between these clubs – they’ll meet again at Staples Center on March 3. While both teams have played stout defense this year, the Lakers have also excelled on offense, something that Philadelphia have struggled with since trading Jimmy Butler to the Miami Heat during the offseason. The Sixers rank No. 24 in free-throw attempts and No. 23 in 3-point attempts.
