LeBron James and The Los Angeles Lakers continue their East Coast road trip to take on the Indiana Pacers in a West vs East Coast showdown.

All the talk is about when LeBron James will pass Kareem Abdul-Jabaar on the all time scoring list, and he gets a chance to get one step closer tonight in Indiana.

It is a foregone conclusion that the King will surpass Kareem, now it is only a matter of when?

How many points closer will he get tonight? And will it lead to a Lakers win?

Or will the Pacers spoils the King’s supper and snag a win in Gainbridge Fieldhouse?

We are witnessing history every time LeBron touches the court right now, be sure not to miss out 😉

Let’s dive in…

Los Angeles Lakers vs Indiana Pacers

  • Game Date and Time: Thursday, February 2nd, 2023. 7:00 PM EST
  • Game Location: Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Indianapolis, Indiana.
  • Where to Watch: Ball Sports/NBA TV


  • Lakers -1.5 (-110)
  • Pacers +1.5 (-110)


  • Lakers (-120)
  • Pacers (+100)


  • Over 240.5 (-110)
  • Under 240.5 (-110)



All the focus in this one will be on LeBron and his race towards history. The game does feel like it is taking a bit of a back seat.

Rightly so.

However, the game result and Lebron’s greatness will go hand in hand tonight as the Lakers go as LeBron goes.

If the King can put up another stellar performance, the Lakers should be able to take care of business tonight in Indy.

They need to, as well.

The Lakers are currently sitting 12th in the West, but are only 2.5 games out of the 8 seed in the playoff picture.

The next month will be the deciding factor in the Lakers season and luckily for them, LeBron’s chase of history ties together beautifully with the Laker’s chase of a playoff birth.

In what should be a very entertaining, fast paced game between two teams desperately needing to grab wins wherever they can find them, I am going to ride with the best player on the floor.

I see a huge night from LeBron yet again, which will lead the Lakers to a big win, as he gets one step closer to reaching the top of the Kareem mountain.

Give me the Lakers on the moneyline.

Best Bet

Lakers ML (-115)

Consensus Pick

Lakers ML (-115)

Prop of the Game

LeBron James o45.5 Points+Rebound+Assists (-105)

Did you think I was targeting anyone else? 😉

As you could have guessed, I am riding with the King here.

It was hard to figure out which stat I wanted to roll with specifically, so I just decided to chose them all and do the PRA.

This is also backed up by the data at BetAlytics



BetAlytics has LeBron scoring 37 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and recording 9.5 assists!

The matchup is perfect for the King tonight, as the Pacers allow the MOST points and the MOST assists to Power Forwards in the league.

He has also recorded 8+ rebounds in 10 straight games and has over 45 PRA in 10/L 13 games.

The matchup is perfect and with how amazing he is playing right now, chasing history, he is a MUST BET tonight.
