Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors (By: Khum)
Los Angeles Lakers - Golden State Warriors
Probably the most loopsided game of the day in NBA will be this one in Los Angeles.
What's the connection between Christmas and Martin Luther King Day ...?
The Lakers and the Warriors were set to meet this season in these two highlited days, broadcasted live on national TV. And that Chrismas game is directly affecting this one played on MLK Day.
On December 26 the Lakers produced the upset blowing the Warriors out of their own building. That will not remain unpunished and I'm putting my money on that.
Moreover, in that game Lebron James went of the courtwith groin injury and he's still sidelined. In the meantime Rajon Rondo injured himself as well. They are told to have practiced yesterday, yet they won't be on the court today.
Last week the Lakers remained without Lozon Ball as well, which will miss 6 to 8 weeks.
So picture this: the back-to-back cmapions coming in LA with revenge plans and with Demarcus Cousins which just made his debut in yellow&blue while the hosts are without their 3 main playmakers. Ingram and Hart will be primarely ball handlers and as they are not used with the role, when pressured we'll see some more turnovers and a inneficient LA offense.
On the Warriors offense there's no need for me to speak. Only one thing: two days ago Cousins was the best player while being on the court, according to PER. That while Curry and Durant had very good games.
Let's go green!
