But the Greek Freak had 27 points and a career-high 21 boards, playing a more physical and well-rounded game, including strong defense. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our NBA Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game. The under is 7-3 in Lakers last 10 overall.

Having also blown double-digit leads against the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers in that run, Josh Hart admitted they are having trouble closing out matches without their senior figures. "I think it's going to be a big thing as the season progresses and we use it more".

He is yet to return, with reports suggesting he could be out for several more weeks. Prior to the injury he is now dealing with, the absence back in the 2014-15 season was the last time he missed consecutive games. Over their last five without LeBron, the Lakers have scored just 105.2 points per game. If not - even though the team has other budding stars in Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball - the Lakers could be left out of the playoffs altogether.

Dallas wrapped up its four-game road trip with back-to-back losses after a 106-100 setback at Philadelphia on Saturday.

Dallas fell for just the fourth time at home this season.

Kuzma is averaging 18.3 points and 5.8 rebounds in 38 games. The Mavericks entered the day tied for the fewest home losses in the National Basketball Association. As disconcerting as blowing a healthy lead to a struggling, short-handed Lakers team was for the Mavericks, registering only 12 assists on 36 made field might have been the most ominous development.

"We know that when we're at our best, we're a really good team", he said.
