The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Monday, Nov. 28 with a slate of 10 games, including a clash at crypto.com Arena between the Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers. Don't look now, but the Lakers are showing signs of life. After all, their 143-138 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday marked Los Angeles' fifth victory in its last six games.

Meanwhile, the Pacers recently tasted defeat in Los Angeles, coming up short in a 114-100 loss to the LA Clippers on Sunday. The outcome was the first time that Indiana has lost on the road since Halloween night, making it interesting to see how Tyrese Haliburton and co. respond tonight.

Lakers vs. Pacers Prediction & Pick

When the Lakers are on their game, they can be one of the more dangerous teams in basketball. Unfortunately for the Pacers, everything is clicking right now for their upcoming opponent. Russell Westbrook is playing well off the bench, LeBron James is coming off a 39-point effort and Anthony Davis is averaging 31.8 points with 17.0 rebounds over his last six games.

Have the Lakers been beating up on bad teams? Sure, but those wins have given them confidence. Besides, the Pacers haven't exactly been perfect, committing the seventh-most turnovers in the NBA while owning the seventh-worst field-goal percentage on the road (44.5%).

With the way Darvin Ham has his players performing, expect another solid win for the Lakers at home.

Final Score Prediction: Lakers: 124 | Pacers: 117

Lakers vs. Pacers Best Bet

The Lakers tend to be involved in high-scoring games at crypto.com Arena this season, proven by the total going over in six of their last eight home games. Neither defense here is particularly good, with both ranking in the bottom half of the NBA. I don't see a ton of defensive stops in this one, so back the total going over 237.5 points in another LA-based shootout.

Bet: Over 237.5 Points (-110)
