Warriors vs Lakers prediction

Massive game, as the Lakers and Warriors are fighting for positioning in the play-in tournament. If the Warriors and Lakers stay in the 10/9 seeds, this game could determine home court in the play-in game. Of course, the Lakers have a chance to move out of the play-in tournament if they keep winning. However, the Lakers still have a banged up LeBron and AD, and despite them playing, they've been game time decisions and Bron missed the game against the Timberwolves. While Wiggins is questionable, the Warriors are much healthier. Also, the Warriors have won the last two games against the Lakers, which includes a game less than a month ago where they scored 128 points. Give me the free bucket with the Warriors.
