OPEN THREAD: Game #71 - Warriors @ Lakers

Warriors (W-L): 33-37

Lakers (W-L): 37-32

Time: 6:30PM PST tip off

The battle continues.

Currently half a game out of the 8 spot, the Warriors are embarking on a rough three game series. Starting tonight against the Lakers, they will continue onto the Spurs, then move onto the Suns.

This is not the schedule that one would wish for given the volatility of our playoff position. But I don't think that the time for despair is upon us just yet.

Since our team has regained its health, we have all been treated to a brand of Warriors basketball that we haven't seen all season. There's a chance to do something special here.

Tonights game is going to be all about containing Kobe. He's in the middle of a super hot streak, scoring over 50 points in his last four games. But if there's one team that's capable of breaking a streak, it's us. Just ask the Mavs!

Countering Kobe's offense and coming prepared with a little offense of our own. Containing the unnecessary 3's and taking the high percentage shots. These are the things that will give us the W tonight.

Let the games begin!

Vegas Odds: Lakers by 4.5. They are on a 4 game win streak right now and we're facing them on their home floor. Yet at the end of the day, we need this game more than them, I think we're going to be looking at a close one tonight.

GSoM Prediction: Warriors by 2.
