The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers meet as both Kobe Bryant and Steph Curry continue to deal with injuries and remain questionable for Tuesday night.
Los Angeles brings an odd and very rare 3 game winning streak into this one. The Warriors will be playing in their 2nd leg of a back-to-back as they held Charlotte off Monday inside Oracle Arena.
Both teams will look to push their winning streaks to 2 games, but questions remain if we’ll see a Curry vs. Bryant matchup.
The Warriors are seeing a very different side of Draymond Green. The F is putting up Curry-like numbers as he continues to fill the void while Steph Curry sits out.
Golden State won their 3rd straight game on Monday 111-101 as Green once again put on a show. He finished with 13 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists as he recorded another triple double. This was Green’s 8th triple double on the season.
He also became just the 2nd Warrior in franchise history to record 3 straight triple doubles.
Curry remains questionable as he played in last night’s win, but continues to battle a bruised shin. He actually showed little signs of injury as he put in 30 points and played 32 minutes Monday. It remains to be seen if the Warriors will push him or not in this back to back.
Regardless, the Warriors are getting contributions from everyone else, making things so much easier on them. Klay Thompson has quietly scored 31.2 points per game over the last 3 games.
The Lakers won just 5 games over their first 32 as their youth was certainly being exposed.
Somehow, the Lakers have no rattle off 3 straight wins and look as impressive as ever this season. Now, they’ll certainly be tested as they try for 4 straight, but have to go through the top team in the NBA.
Julius Randle has been seeing less and less of the floor as he expressed his frustrations with his decreased amount of minutes after the Lakers 20 point win over Phoenix. The Lakers are turning to Larry Nance Jr. as their go to now as they continue to try and see what they have for the future.
Byron Scott answered back to Randle’s comments and said the 21 year old needs to grow up.
SF Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and PG D’Angelo Russell (sore throat) are both listed as QUESTIONABLE for Tuesday nights affair.

Free NBA Prediction:
With the Lakers having two key components questionable, things won’t be easy on them here. They have been playing well, but going up against the best team in the NBA with a lot of injuries will certainly be a challenge here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Golden State ATS
With no line, it’s tough to predict how many points the Warriors will be favorited by. But still, look for a very lopsided game here on Tuesday.
