The Golden State Warriors look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 114.7 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.9 points and 6.3 assists while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.5 points and 4.6 rebounds.

The Golden State Warriors are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 37.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.4 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Lakers need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 111.2 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 106.1 points on 45 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 25.7 points and 8.2 rebounds while Anthony Davis is averaging 22.5 points and three assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.5 rebounds.

The Warriors are 6-17 ATS in their last 23 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Warriors last 6 road games. The under is 5-1 in Lakers last 6 overall.
The Golden State Warriors are a hard team to read, as you just don't know which team is going to show up, but they already beat the Lakers this year and come into this contest playing well and shooting high percentages. The Los Angeles Lakers have struggled big time without Davis, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 6.4 points while shooting just 43.5 percent from the field. I don't trust the Lakers in their current form. It's Warriors and the points or pass.
