Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers

NBA Regular Season

LAL VS GSW MATCH PREVIEW:

There was a time in the season when Golden State Warriors looked unbeatable. Not only they won the games during that imperious run, but the Dubs made some powerful teams like Cleveland Cavaliers look like a team of amateur players.

But the season is long and no team can sustain the same momentum for long. The Dubs, too, saw a dip in their form as the season progressed and that is largely because key players such as Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green all missed the matches.

The worse came when Houston Rockets accumulated win after win while Warriors suffered losses. As a result, NBA Champion slipped down to second in the Western Conference.

Los Angeles Lakers, on the other hand,  are 11th in the Western Conference. But that’s mainly because of their poor start to the 2017-18 season.

In the last eight games, the Showtime have won 7 games which include some outstanding win over the teams like San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers.

So injury-hit Warriors need to be on their toes against an inform Lakers who possess some of the best young talents in NBA.
