Gamethread: Curry and Durant back against Lakers

Golden State’s superstars return in Los Angeles

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

If you were hoping to see Stephen Curry go up against Lonzo Ball for the first of many career matchups, it looks like your wish came true. Curry is probable for the first game of the year between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Not only is Curry likely to be back, but Kevin Durant is listed as probable too.

David West is inactive with left lateral knee soreness, meaning that there should be a handful of minutes for either Jordan Bell, or Kevon Looney (or both!). Against the Lakers less-than-terrifying frontcourt, it could be a great opportunity for the young big men to shine.

The Warriors have a history of dropping games that they should win against the Lakers. Los Angeles is usually good for one upset of the Dubs each year. Let’s just hope that’s not tonight.

It’s a healthy Warriors squad against some exciting youngsters in Ball and Kyle Kuzma, plus old pal Luke Walton on the sideline, and Andrew Bogut on the bench. What’s not to like?!
