Watch Golden State Warriors vs LA Lakers 20th May For Free
The Los Angeles Lakers lost only 13 in the first 41 games from the first half of the season to the period when LeBron James was injured. But in the absence of Davis and James, they strained and dropped to seventh place in the west. Although they won their last five games with Anthony Davis finding the rhythm and kept the first six chances, they could not finish in the top six of the regular season. Throughout the season, they became the league’s best defense team, just like last year. LeBron James wrist injury return has yet to find the rhythm. But they have rebounds and great advantages under the rim against their rivals, the Warriors.
Golden State Warriors, on the other hand, had a very bad start to the season, after which they settled their defensive setup and started to exit. With the great form that Stephen Curry got after all-star, they have 20 wins from their last 35 games. They are clearly inferior to the Lakers in terms of staffing quality. But like Curry, they currently have the league’s most fit player. They started the season with a lot of disruption in team defense. But with Draymond Green’s increasing form after James Wiseman’s injury, they finished the season in fifth place in defense efficiency.
Golden State Warriors vs LA Lakers 20th May
The Lakers won two of the three games played between the two teams in the season series. While the average of these matches was 220.6 points, two matches were over. The Lakers are one of the smartest defense teams in the league. They won their last five pre-play games and Anthony Davis started to form in those matches. They have a lot of players who can do a good job in defending Stephen Curry’s. Both teams are in the top five in defense efficiency and in the last 10 in offensive efficiency. I expect the Lakers to win against the Warriors and stay in the play-offs, even if their sub-choice comes to the fore.
