Total: 214.00 | -110.00 Under
These two teams are both in the Top 10 in several defensive categories. Each likes to run its offense through its big men, or to set up isolation plays for star players. This invariably leads to a lot of clock-killing on the offensive end. The Lakers will be out to establish their defensive superiority from the "get go," here, as they'll look to avoid getting into any track meets with Chris Paul and Devin Booker. I expect a hard-fought, but lower-scoring Game 1. The play is the under!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
