The third game of 5 preseason basketball games is about to tip off. The Golden State Warriors are hoping to extend their preseason winning streak to 3 games as they face off tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers.

This matchup represents the first of 2 preseason games against the Lakers before they officially matchup on opening night. It also represents a rematch of last year’s play-in game in Los Angeles where the Warriors almost took down the then-defending champs.

The Warriors will come into this game with a different starting lineup. Otto Porter Jr. will start in place of Andrew Wiggins who is out with some soreness. Stephen Curry and Draymond Green have played at least the first half of each preseason game and are expected to play tonight. On the other hand, Lakers star LeBron James and their newly acquired point guard Russell Westbrook will make their preseason debuts.

Another game and another day closer to real Warriors basketball. Enjoy the game Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!

Projected Starters

Warriors: Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Otto Porter Jr., Draymond Green, Kevon Looney
