D'Angelo Russell is averaging 13 points and 3.5 assists while Julius Randle is averaging 11.5 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Bass is grabbing 4.2 rebounds and Roy Hibbert is dishing 1.3 assists.

The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference. The Lakers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The only way the Lakers can cover this number is if Steve Kerr pulls his guys in the fourth quarter. This is a crazy mismatch and the line is smaller than some of the other Warriors games. This could get very ugly.
