The Lakers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Lakers just lost to the Trail Blazers by 14 points and to the Suns by 19 points. With this game being played in Oracle and history being on the line, this game could get downright ugly. You folks know how I feel about big chalk, but this may be one of the times to lay it. Lakers don't stand much of a chance.
