Will the Lakers have a little luck with a letdown from the Warriors? They are sure hoping so after the much anticipated game last night between Kevin Durant and the Warriors routing his old team in the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Warriors have won 4 in a row after dropping their season opener and in the big game against the Thunder last night they laid a beat down on them winning 122-96.
The Lakers had lost 3 in a row after winning their season opener and they snapped that streak in their last game with a solid 123-116 road win over the Atlanta Hawks in their last game.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the league in scoring and rank 22nd in opponents’ points per game.
In their lopsided win over the Thunder in their last game the Warriors were solid on both ends of the floor shooting 51.1% from the floor and holding OKC to 40.2% shooting.
Kevin Durant came up big in the win over his former team last night going for 39 points on 15/24 shooting and he made 7 of his 11 3-pointers.
The new big 3 of him, Steph Curry, and Klay Thomson combined for 78 points in the game, so needless to say the Lakers’ D will have their hands full.
It is key that the Lakers don’t allow Golden State to have open looks from deep, as they shot 46.7% in the OKC game beyond the 3-pt arc.
The Warriors have not played great D this season, but they stepped up in that department against the Thunder and held Russell Westbrook, who came into the game averaging a triple-double to 20 points on only 4/15 shooting, 6 boards, and 10 assists.
This season the Warriors have won all 3 of their road games.
The Lakers rank a solid 9th in the in league in scoring, but their D only ranks 26th in terms of opponents’ points allowed.
In their win over the Hawks the Lakers had a great shooting night with a FG% of 53.9% and they hit 9 of their 22 3-pointers. They forced 18 turnovers in the game and came up big in the 4th quarter outscoring Atlanta by 11 points in the 4th period.
In the Hawks game PG DeAngelo Russell went for 23 points and one of the main reasons the Lakers won was their strong bench play. Larry Nance Jr, Jeremy Clarkson, and Louis Williams combined to score 48 points off the bench.
Last season the Lakers did win one game facing the Warriors and that was on the road.
The Lakers have a young team and they will need to get out and run and get easy buckets, but they also have to play good transition defense on the Thunder. In the win over the Hawks the Lakers scored 25 points off the fast break.
The Lakers are back in La La Land after a 4-game road trip and they have won their only home game this season.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. L.A. Lakers NBA Prediction:
The Lakers have to be pretty confident in this game after winning their home opener and then playing solid in their last game of their road trip against a good Hawks’ team.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: L.A. +10.5
I think the Warriors will have a little letdown tonight and while they will win they will not blow out the Lakers and L.A. will cover the double digit spread.
