Last season, the squads played three times with the Lakers sweeping the series. The Lakers hold the all-time record between the squads with 256 victories in the team’s 425 meetings.
Los Angeles Lakers
The last time these clubs played the Lakers annihilated the Warriors by 26 points despite not having Anthony Davis in the lineup. LA won’t have AD again but they’ll be missing several others this time too.
They arrive having won their last match versus the Pacers but have lost six of their last nine, however they’ve been off since Friday so bring rested legs to this match in the Bay.
In the win versus the Pacers, two Lakers delivered double-doubles led by Kyle Kuzma with 24 points and 13 rebounds and joined by LeBron James with 18 points and 10 assists.
Montrezl Harrell and Dennis Schroder were the other double-figure contributors scoring 17 and 11 points respectively.
James (ankle) and Kuzma (heel contusion) are probable while Anthony Davis (calf strain) remains out.
Joining AD are Alex Caruso (concussion protocols), Marc Gasol (health and safety protocols), Jared Dudley (MCL tear), and Kostas Antetokounmpo (health and safety protocols) who are all out.
Golden State Warriors
After four consecutive losses, the Warriors broke out in a big way defeating the top-ranked team in the NBA. Draymond Green said what the team does next was the important factor calling it a potential turning point.
Green registered his second triple-double of the season with 11 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists. Stephen Curry led the Dubs with 32 points, nine assists, and hit six 3-pointers.
Curry enters this contest on the precipice of earning another historic benchmark needing two assists to become the all-time franchise leader to surpass Guy Rodgers (4,855).
Andrew Wiggins (28), Jordan Poole (18), and James Wiseman (16) were the other double-figure scorers. The rookie missed 11 games with a wrist injury and is averaging 11.6 points plus 5.4 rebounds since returning.
Klay Thompson (Achilles) and Marquese Chriss (leg) will miss the season.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Warriors are playing on the second night of a back-to-back which gives the Lakers a huge rest advantage having not played since Friday.
However, the Lakers will be missing core contributors, and while LeBron James is likely to play the Lakers need to cognizant of wearing him out while Anthony Davis is out.
The Lakers don’t need to gun for the top record because they’ve proven to be even more successful on the road (13-5) than they are at Staples Center (12-8).

Both teams have struggled mid-season but it’s the Warriors who are healthier at this point in the season. As Draymond Green said – it’s what they do in follow-up to the victory over the Jazz that matters even more than that victory.
