★★★

The Golden State Warriors are 13.5 point favorites on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night at the Staples Center. Golden State is averaging 118 points over the last five games against the Lakers. The over/under for tonight's contest is hovering around 212 points according to BetOnline. However, the total has gone under in the Lakers last five games at home.

Both the Lakers and Warriors enter Tuesday night with three game winning streaks. It is the first time the Lakers have won three consecutive games since defeating the Bucks on February 27th, 2015. NBA Legend Kobe Bryant is questionable against the Warriors in his final home game against the Pacific Division foes. Festus Ezeli will return to action for the Warriors after sitting out multiple games with a toe injury.

Draymond Green continues to solidify his case as one of the NBA's top players. Ben Golliver of SI.com writes;

Imagine, for a moment, the following Jeopardy! category with the heading, "NBA Players."

• For $200: He leads the defending champion Warriors in assists and passes per game, topping Stephen Curry in both categories.

•​ For $400: He leads the NBA in triple doubles, surpassing Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook.

•​ For $600: He leads all forwards and centers in total touches, besting Blake Griffin andLeBron James.

•​​ For $800: He is the first player to average nine rebounds and seven assists in the same season since Grant Hill in 1997.

•​​​ For $1,000: He can be described by all of the following terms: undersized center, elite rim-protector, point forward, stretch forward, 2016 Most Improved Player candidate, 2016 Defensive Player of the Year candidate, 2016 All-NBA First Team candidate, 2016 All-Defensive First Team candidate, and surefire first-time All-Star in 2016.

Who is Draymond Green? Correct.
