Game preview Golden State vs Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Lakers allowed Golden State Warriors back into the series by dropping Game 5 at San Francisco by a 121-106 score. Both teams now return for Game 6, one that both likely consider must-wins; should Game 6 go in favor of the Warriors, they will gain momentum going into a decisive Game 7 in San Francisco. Anthony Davis’s head injury will be the most significant issue in this game. If he doesn’t play, the Lakers could be in trouble.

Los Angeles LakersCan the Lakers finish the Warriors off?

At Wednesday night’s game against the Warriors, the Lakers had played 114 minutes without Davis in this postseason and lost them by 25 points during those minutes AD did not play. LeBron James remains injured and ageing, meaning the Lakers are simply incapable of defeating them without Davis in their lineup – for now, nothing else matters beyond ensuring his health is secure. A healthy Davis and the Lakers could wrap it up tonight.

Golden State WarriorsWill the Warriors force a game 7?

Stephen Curry will put one of the most impressive postseason streaks in NBA history at stake in Game 6. Throughout his career, Curry never played an entire series without winning at least one road game; they only fell short this time after they lost Games 3 and 4. Now Game 6 presents an opportunity to save both their season and maintain this incredible run, although keeping it will not be simple; the Lakers outscored opponents by an astounding 89-point margin during those five matches in Los Angeles during these playoffs!

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Warriors +2.5

Game 7 would be an epic battle, and I believe there’s a possibility it may happen.

Golden State was forced to fumble away a double-digit second-half lead in Game 4, while Stephen Curry hasn’t played at his peak level (6-for-25 from 3 since earlier in the series).

With Davis sidelined, the Warriors may have an opportunity to capitalize quickly with Game 6 scheduled for Friday night.

The Warriors have adjusted to force Davis into every pick-and-roll scenario, which has opened up some easier baskets for Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green.

Golden State has scored two victories while coming within two possessions in two other contests in this series despite Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson and Donte DiVincenzo’s struggling shooting.

I’ll make a wager that Steph and company can force a Game 7 on Sunday.
