Warriors vs Lakers Preview
Lebron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to a dominant thirty-point win over the Golden State Warriors in game 3 on Saturday night. Can the Lakers keep that momentum going? Games like this game 4 are where Steph Curry usually steps up and puts his team on his back to carry them across the finish line. Will this be another one of those games?
The Lakers began the game relying heavily on Davis and Russell before shifting gears in the second quarter when James began scoring buckets. The defense played exceptionally well as they forced the Warriors to turn the ball over 19 times while taking care of the ball themselves and receiving multiple chances at the charity stripe that ultimately paid off for them. While defense was an integral factor of the victory, the Lakers must remain consistent while continuing to pressure the Warriors into poor shots with effective pressure defense.
If Davis, James, and Russell continue their strong play offensively, the Lakers should cover their spread. But will they?
Although the Warriors have had difficulty away from Oracle Arena this season, they've shown they can overcome that difficulty in the NBA playoffs. When facing Sacramento Kings in Game 7 in Round 1, they answered the bell with a 20-point win that proved they could overcome any issues away from home.
I think we can expect the same in this game, I like the Warriors to bounce back and the Lakers to have a small let down after playing so well on Saturday night.
Head to Head
Warriors vs Lakers Head-to-Head this season.
The only thing that matters here is the fact that the Lakers lead this series 2 games to one.
I expect both teams to play at a high level, considering whats on the line in this all-important game. Expect the stars to shoot lights out and see a game that hits the over.
