Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors prediction

The Golden State Warriors entered the break playing their best ball of the season, and they're an experienced team that knows this is the time of the season where you start to flex the muscle and make a push for a playoff spot. The Los Angeles Lakers got some nice wins of their own, but they're going to be without LeBron for this game. One step forward, two steps back. It's been the story for the Lakers all year. These are spots the Warriors need to take advantage of as they look to keep chipping away in the standings. I'll lay the chalk.
