My Picks for Lakers vs. Pacers

LeBron James, Lakers: Higher than 29.0 points

LeBron has not looked like a guy who turns 39 years old at the end of this month during the NBA In-Season Tournament. He has turned back the clock, scoring 30+ points in each of his last 2 games. While it might make sense to fade him in this spot, I prefer the opposite against an Indiana team that doesn’t play a ton of defense. He’ll put together one more heroic effort, scoring 30+ points before falling back to earth a bit when the regular season resumes next week.

Anthony Davis, Lakers: Higher than 40.5 points+rebounds

Davis didn’t need to do much in the Lakers’ blowout win over the Pelicans in the semifinals, so he didn’t. The game was out of hand early, so Davis was able to conserve some energy. Now he should be fresh and ready to roll for championship game tonight. Add in the fact that the Pacers don’t have much size and it should be a huge performance from AD. We like him to go for 41+ points+rebounds against Myles Turner and company.

Tyrese Haliburton, Pacers: Higher than 46.5 points+rebounds+assists

Haliburton has been refreshingly open about how much he wants to win this tournament. He said he’s never won anything big in his basketball career. Well, here’s his chance. He’s been dominant throughout this tournament, posting 49 points+rebounds+assists against the Celtics in the quarterfinals and doing it again against the Bucks in the semifinals. He’s got 1 more game of 47+ points+rebounds+assists in him tonight to finish this NBA Cup off strong.

How Many Picks Should You Make?

A 3-picks contest like the one I described in the previous section would pay out $25 on a $5 entry if all 3 picks are correct. Here’s what the contest looks like on the PrizePicks app:

Want to play it safe? Go down to 2 picks, but make sure at least 1 player from each team is involved. Want to be bold? You can go up to 6 picks per contest to try to win 25x your entry fee! Just make sure to get those picks in before tipoff at 8:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night!
