Game 5 New Orleans Hornets vs Los Angeles Lakers NBA Picks
There is no question that the two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers are the most talented and experienced team in the NBA playoffs, but they definitely aren’t playing like it as a very mediocre New Orleans Hornets squad led by perennial All-Star Chris Paul have given them all they can handle in the first four games.
Now that the series is tied up at 2-2, the Lakers will have all the pressure on them throughout the rest of the series. Whether or not Kobe Bryant and company can get back to form and be favored in NBA picks remains to be seen, but if any team in the league can get back to their dominant ways it is the Lakers.
Game 5 in Los Angeles will be crucial as the Lakers will need to make a statement by dominating the Hornets from the word go.
