Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers

Where: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles California

When: Monday, January 21, 2019 10:35 pm Eastern

The Golden State Warriors travel south to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers on the close of the National Basketball Association’s day of remembering Dr Martin Luther King Jr. The Warriors are once again at the top of the Western Conference and the Lakers have been fighting hard without injured MVP candidate LeBron James. This could be a fantastic end to a very special day of NBA basketball.

Boogie is Back!!!!

Boogie is BACK!!! DeMarcus Cousins played his first game in over a year this past Friday night and played 18 minutes, scoring 14 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and a three for four performance from downtown in his Warriors debut. The Warriors won that game just as they have won nine of their last ten games and with Boogie back, the Warriors look invincible.

The Warriors aren’t listing any injuries for Monday night’s game with the Lakers.

Stephen Curry is having an MVP type of season, averaging 29 points per game, five rebounds, five assists and is knocking down a whopping five triples per night for the Warriors this season.

Kevin Durant is averaging 28 points per game and contributes with seven rebounds, six assists and has two triples per night this season.

Klay Thompson struggled through parts of the season, but is averaging 21 points, four rebounds and two assists per game this season.

Draymond Green leads the Warriors in rebounds (7.8), assists (7.8) and steals (1.6) but struggles to score buckets, averaging just seven points per game this season.

Golden State scores an average of 118 points per game, grabs ten offensive boards and 36 defensive rebounds and averages 28 assists per game this season.

Lakers are 5-8 Without LeBron James

The Lakers have had an interesting time since the Christmas Day game against these same Warriors. That was the day LeBron James heard a “pop” in his groin area and hasn’t played since. Since that victory over Golden State, the Lakers have a record of five wins and eight losses and will have to once again hit the floor without James, Rajon Rondo, and, most recently, Lonzo Ball went down with an ankle injury and is questionable for Monday night’s game with the Warriors.

With James out, Kyle Kuzma is the de facto leading scorer, averaging 19 points, six rebounds, two assists and two triples per night. Over the past five games, Kuzma is averaging 24 points, eight rebounds and nearly three assists and three triples per game.

Brandon Ingram is averaging 16 points, five rebounds and three assists per game this season. Over the past five games, Ingram is averaging 16 points, six rebounds, five assists and the occasional triple.

JaVale McGee is averaging 10 points, nearly seven rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game this season and over the past five games is averaging six points, seven rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots.

Los Angeles scores an average of 112 points, ten offensive rebounds, 37.5 defensive boards and drops an average of 24 dimes per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Warriors are rolling along and I am not sure the Lakers are going to be able to match the Warriors without James, Rondo and Ball out of the lineup. The Lakers will fight hard, as they have played two overtime games this past week, but in the end the Warriors start five all-stars and should easily cover the spread. I will take the Warriors and lay the 10 points on Monday.

Prediction: Warriors -10 Points

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Lakers are missing roughly 44 points without James, Rondo and Ball and I don’t see how they can make up the difference. Sure, they have players who will score buckets, but not enough to reach 233.5 points. I’m thinking more like 228.5 points maximum and I’m rolling with the under on Monday night.

Prediction: Under 233.5 Points
