My Prediction: The Lakers really have their hands full in this series with the Hornets. Chris Paul had a triple-double (27 pts, 13 rebounds, 15 assists) in the Hornets’ Game 4 win. The Lakers put it together in Game 2, but other than that, they have struggled to find some consistency. I’m a little surprised that this game has the Lakers as a double-digit favorite again despite being at home. Expect the Hornets to continue hanging with L.A. and keep it close once again.
