The LA Lakers are desperate to win and keep their playoff chances. They host the NBA champions, Golden State Warriors, without LeBron James.
Before Betting on the Warriors vs. Lakers
Warriors also have problems with absent players, as two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry misses tonight’s event. Andrew Wiggins will be out too. Yet, even without these two, the Dub Nation has been great lately, with five wins in a row.
All of them were at home, against the Rockets, the Timberwolves, Blazers, Clippers, and at last, the Pelicans, 108-99. The Warriors have improved the defense a little bit, allowing 105 points at most during this stretch. By the way, six of their previous events all ended under.
LeBron is out for a few weeks due to his foot injury, and to make things even worse, D’Angelo Russell is injured as well, while Anthony Davis remains a game-time decision for tonight. Tough time for the purple and gold many would say.
The Lakers lost two of the past three. Their most recent game was at the Crypto.com Arena, where Minnesota triumphed, 110-102. AD had 38 points in this event, and the only one who joined him was Malik Beasley with 15 buckets

The Warriors will cover a five-point spread because of their good defense and excellent chemistry between Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson. With or without Davis in the lineup they can’t beat the guests. Pinnacle has the best offer for our suggestion, with the odds at 1.98.
