Los Angeles Lakers
Since LeBron James got injured the Lakers are 1-2 with the lone winning coming in OKC when Anthony Davis was also out.
LA’s goal was to move up to the sixth position where they could avoid the play-in but they enter this match seeded in 11th a game behind the Pelicans for the last play-in spot. With only 18 games left to play time is running out but have the fifth easiest remaining schedule.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
When Curry got injured the hope was the Warriors could navigate his absence and play .500 ball. Golden State exceeded those expectations going 7-4 in his absence and have won five in-a-row.
As well as they’re playing winning on the road remains an issue needing resolution with their last five road games all resulting in losses. Given that dynamic it’s a bit risky to take the Dubs especially to cover but I’m rolling with Curry’s return inspiring the squad.
