The NBA is back in action today as the Golden State Warriors will play against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center in L.A, California. The Warriors are heading into this game after 116-102 win over Denver at home Tuesday night in their last game. On the other side, Los Angeles was knocked off 119-103 in Oklahoma City in on Tuesday night.
Golden State Warriors Form
The Warriors are one of the best teams in the league this season. Moreover, the Champions have been consistent during the season and are one of the candidates to win the league again. Also, the win over Denver was their second in a row and 4th in the last 5 games. Now the team is on the top spot in the Western Conference with two games ahead of the Nuggets.
One the offensive side of the game, the Warriors score an average of 117.7 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 2nd spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.1 boards per game combined with 29.4 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Warriors are conceding an average of 111.4 points per night. Therefore, this record makes them the 16th defensive team in the NBA this season.
Los Angeles Lakers Form
The Lakers are out of the playoff race. Also, they have lost against the Thunder in their last contest to suffer just their second loss in their last six games. This team has a lot of potentials and they played some good games recently. However, this is too little too late. Anyway, they can still play a spoiler in the remaining games without any pressure.
One the offensive side of the game, the Lakers score an average of 112 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 12th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.2 boards per game combined with 25.5 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, this L.A team is conceding an average of 113.7 points per night. Therefore, this record makes them the 22nd best defensive team in the NBA this season.
The Lakers are playing well lately. Also, they were solid against the Thunder but that was not enough for a win. Still, I feel that the Warriors are too good for them and I expect that a win for Golden State in a tight contest.
