The last game between the Warriors (2-4) and Lakers (3-4) ended late in the third quarter due to poor playing conditions. With a combined point total of 155 and still more basketball to be played, it seemed as though the last meeting was going to cover the OVER game total of 207.5.
According to BetUS.com the Warriors enter tonight as six and a half point favorites. The OVER is 7-3 in the last ten regular season meetings between Golden State and Los Angeles (L). The total for tonight's game is set at 211.5
The Lakers will host the Warriors away from the Staples Center yet again. Instead the game will be played at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA at 7:05 p.m. PST on TNT. The arena is home of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks, but also hosts NCAA Tournament games from time to time.
Golden State will raise the 2015 NBA championship banner prior to the start of their season opener next Tuesday on TNT vs. the New Orleans Pelicans. With Alvin Gentry on hand, the champs will also receive their rings.
