The Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors do battle at the Chase Center on Saturday night. Here’s a Lakers vs Warriors Prediction.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in pretty good shape as they’ve won four of their last six games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after outlasting the Bulls in a 141-132 win on Thursday. D’Angelo Russell led the team with 29 points, LeBron James added 25 points with 12 assists while Anthony Davis chipped in with 22 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Lakers shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 20 of 31 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 42 points in the second quarter to build a 24-point lead in the third quarter before the Bulls made a late run to keep the margin within single digits.

Los Angeles Lakers Team Facts

  • The Lakers have lost each of their last 11 road games following a win.
  • The Lakers have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight road games following a win.
  • Each of the Lakers’ last seven road games against Pacific Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Golden State Warriors

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are coming into this game looking to bounce back after coming up painfully short to the Kings in a 134-133 home loss on Thursday. Stephen Curry led the team with 33 points on 13 of 26 shooting, Jonathan Kuminga added 31 points off the bench while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 17 points on six of eight shooting. As a team, the Warriors shot 55 percent from the field and 19 of 37 from the 3-point line as they fought hard with the Kings in a tight contest, fighting their way back from a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter, only to turn it over on the final possession of the game.

Golden State Warriors Team Facts

  • The Warriors have lost each of their last six games against Western Conference opponents.
  • The home team has covered the spread in seven of the last eight games between the Lakers and Warriors.
  • Each of the Warriors’ last six night games against Pacific Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Lakers vs Warriors Prediction

The Lakers are keeping an eye on Anthony Davis who is questionable here, while the Warriors are still missing Moses Moody and Chris Paul. The Lakers are starting to heat up again and they are coming into this one fresh off one of their best offensive games of the season, putting up 141 points in a win over the Bulls. The Warriors snapped out of their funk with a big win over the Hawks before they fell back to Earth with a painful loss to the Kings. These two squads have yet to clash heads this season, but the Lakers are the team in better recent form and I think they can pull off the minor upset against this rusty Warriors team.
