Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers are at home, but them being favored in this spot is strange to me. Or at least decent sized favorites. The Golden State Warriors are going to get Curry back for this game and if Draymond plays they won't have a single player on their injury list. The Lakers continue to take a step back right when you think they've figured things out and LeBron continues to play dinged up while the rest of the injury report has many names. A healthy Warriors team is the better spot here. Give me the points.
