Free NBA Picks – Spurs vs Lakers Sunday, April 14, 2013


Lakers without Kobe – Still, getting to the playoffs and succeeding in the postseason without Kobe is, obviously, going to be difficult. Per ESPN Stats & Information, when the Lakers played without Bryant on the court this season, they have scored 7.3 points per 100 possessions worse than when he has was on the court. One of the biggest reasons for the offensive decline has been the Lakers’ inability to score in the paint. The Lakers have shot 49.5 percent in the paint without Bryant on the floor; the league average is 53.6 percent.

Free PicksAnd, of course, Bryant’s play in clutch time (last five minutes, score within five points), has been critical to the Lakers this season, because out of the Lakers’ 43 wins, 22 of them have come in clutch-time situations. Bryant leads the league with 156 points in clutch time, though his shooting from the field wasn’t that great (42.1 FG%, 33.3 3-FG%).
