New, comments

We’re 15-0 right now. 1 win away from making history. How much do the Warriors want it? How much do the Lakers have to spoil all the fun?

★★★

Another Los Angeles team is in town and boy are we in for a showdown!

Don’t underestimate this L.A. Lakers team — anything out of the ordinary can happen. For Golden State, we have the arsenal to come out with a 16-0 record. The momentum is on our side along with the home court advantage. Let’s put this in the record books Dub Nation!

The Warriors. I don't even know where to begin right now. A part of me feels like there's an expert video game player with really good NBA 2K16 skills is controlling our players, dropping arcade like stats. Golden State's numbers don't lie: They're 8-0 at home, 10-0 in the last 10 games and are flying high on a 15 game win streak!

Some fun Warriors tidbits: If the Warriors win tonight, they'll make history by becoming the only team in the history of the NBA to win their first 16 games within a season. They would be surpassing the 1948-49 Washington Capitols and 1993-94 Houston Rockets, who both won their first 15 games.

If the Warriors do make history, they'll be outfitted with their classic "The City" uniforms, taking a blast from the past. Oh, let's not forget the Dubs will be honoring Warriors fan favorite Jason Richardson. Oh my, I also forgot to mention that it's Draymond Green bobble head night! (for the first 10k fans) You don't want to miss this game! (sadly, I have work)

As for the 2-11 Lakers who are sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference... They've got a chance to spoil tonight's party. After a rough defeat against the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday night, LAL is looking to bounce back from back to back losses.

"We've been playing like s**t. We might go up there and we might play like gangbusters up there. You never know." - Kobe Bryant

Predictions

Stephen Curry is going to get hot like fire, no question at that. It's nights like this that will ignite our MVP!

Supporting cast on deck. Expect a big game for Klay, Draymond and Andre who aim to fill up the stat chart.

Speaking of Draymond. I'm predicting at least a double double performance on the eve of his Bobble head night event! He's the glue holding this team together!

I got a feeling Festus Ezeli and Andrew Bogut are going to protect our rim tonight. Looking for a solid rebound night for these two. Did someone say Block Party also?

Win prediction: Warriors win it by at least 12!

Thank you J-Rich!
