GS Warriors vs LA Lakers 03.05.2023
Defending champions GS Warriors were pushed to the limit in their first round match-up. But they left the best for last as they took down the Sacramento Kings in game 7 at the Golden 1 Centre. They needed Steph Curry to bring his A-game as he scored 50 points, the most ever points scored in a game 7 to lead them to a 120-100 win and book their ticket to the Western Conference semifinal. They have a short turnaround though with the Lakers coming to town for game 1 in quick succession. They have homecourt this time and will try to make the most of the opening two home games.
The Lakers came out guns firing in game 1 against Memphis and will be looking to replicate that performance here. Stealing homecourt helped them close out the Grizzlies in 6 games. Key to their success was multiple contributions from their role players like Austin Reeves and Rui Hachimura as well as D’Angelo For this series though, they will need Anthony Davis and Lebron James to impose their will early.
Warriors unsung hero Kevon Looney was a master on the boards against the Kings. He had 3 games of 20+ rebounds and ended up averaging an incredible 15 rebounds a game in the series. We fancy him to continue pounding the glass from the jump and we are picking him to grab double-digit rebounds yet again in this game.
Tip: Looney Over 9.5 Rebounds
