The Los Angeles Lakers (#7 seed) will be hosting the Golden State Warriors (#8 seed) on Wednesday, May 19th at 10:15 pm ET.

The odds opened with the Lakers a heavy favorite at -7 but was pushed down to -5 and has recently settled at -5.5.

The winner of the game will play the Phoenix Suns in the first round while the loser will play the winner of the Grizzlies vs Spurs to decide who will play the Utah Jazz in the first round.

Warriors Vs Lakers Game Preview

Among the Play-In tournament fixtures on Wednesday will be an incredibly hyped game – a tantalizing fixture featuring two of basketball’s undisputable greats: Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors facing off against LeBron James and the LA Lakers for the seventh seed in the West playoffs.

With both teams coming into the game in good form, all eyes are on the two talismanic leaders who could single-handedly change the course of the game. Steph Curry has had an incredible season, averaging a mind-boggling 32 points a game while being hailed by none other than LeBron as the MVP for the season (“I mean, just look at what he’s done this year”). LeBron hasn’t disappointed either, though injury problems have marred the past few weeks for last season’s Finals MVP.

All eyes are now on the fascinating tactical encounter this Wednesday. The “controlled chaos” playstyle of the Warriors has proven remarkably resilient in supporting Curry and blitzing perfectly competent teams, but the Lakers have both the psychological edge – with a 2-1 record over the Warriors this season – as well as the pocket ace of one of the greatest players in NBA history to call on.

The Lakers will rightly be considered favorites for the game, and for the Championship as a whole, and the question is whether Curry and the supporting cast, can pull off a spectacular underdog upset against the now-fit and firing duo of LeBron and Anthony Davis. 

The contest is set to be an experiment in attack vs defense, featuring the scoring title winner going up against possibly the stingiest defense in the league. The only guarantee is that this will be one for the ages – and with the loser of the Seven-Eight game guaranteed another chance to grab a seed for the playoffs, it might just end up being the preview of a title-decider.
