Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors Preview
The hype for this game is real, and while everyone would like to believe that the Warriors and Steph Curry can cause some kind of crazy upset, I just don’t see it happening.
As it stands, LeBron and Anthony Davis are both listed as questionable, but I really believe this is just a play to make us all overlook the Lakers throughout the playoffs.
Curry and Draymond are definitely capable of pushing Los Angeles to the brink, but when it boils down to pure talent, I really don’t the Dubs have enough firepower to hang with the Lakers for four quarters.
Great players are great players, and that was certainly the case when the Lakers tore apart the Warriors 128-97 when they met earlier in March.
You could argue that LA would actually prefer to lose this game and face the winner of Memphis/San Antonio for a chance to play the Jazz in the first round, but even so, I still think this line is generous.
