2022-23 NBA Regular Season Game
Los Angeles Lakers (5-11, 0-6 Away) vs. San Antonio Spurs (6-13, 3-6 Home)
Date: Friday, Nov. 25, 2022
Time: 8 p.m. ET
Venue: AT&T Center — San Antonio, TX
Coverage: NBA League Pass
The 2022-23 NBA season has 14 games planned for Black Friday, including a battle between basement-dwellers as the Los Angeles Lakers visit the San Antonio Spurs. After winning three consecutive games, the Lakers had their streak snapped by a 115-105 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Spurs' tumultuous season continued with a 129-110 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday. San Antonio has now lost six straight outings and 11 of its last 12 overall, leaving time to tell how Gregg Popovich's team gets out of this rut.
Can the Lakers find a way to win without some of their key players? Or will the Spurs finally put an end to their losing ways?

Lakers vs Spurs Prediction & Pick
You don't have to go far back to find the last time these two teams met. It actually happened this past Sunday and it was quite the one-sided affair, ending in a 123-92 victory for the Lakers. Even though they were without LeBron James, Anthony Davis made up for his absence with 30 points and 18 rebounds.
Davis is now averaging a whopping 35.5 points and 18.3 rebounds in his last four games. The truth is that the Spurs don't have anyone that can stop him. San Antonio just isn't good and already has its eyes set on a top draft pick. With Los Angeles looking to get back to its winning ways, I'm taking the motivated Lakers getting another win over the Spurs.
Final Score Prediction: Lakers: 121 | Spurs: 100

Lakers vs Spurs Best Bet
When it comes to the best bet, I'm backing the Lakers as 3-point favorites on the spread. The Spurs just aren't good enough to keep things close, going 1-5 against the spread in their last six games while also owning the worst average scoring margin (minus-10.7) in the league.
The Lakers might not be spread darlings, but I can easily see them beating the Spurs by at least four points. After all, they already did it five days ago and there's no reason why they can't do it again.
Bet: Lakers -3 (-112)
