Golden Stae will travel to Los Angeles on Saturday night for a battle versus the Lakers. For the latest NBA betting trends and free NBA picks on Saturday’s game, check out our Lakers vs Warriors preview below.
Lakers Looking To Figure Things Out
The Los Angeles Lakers are currently on a four-game losing streak, including getting embarrassed against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday, 130-111. In that game, the Lakers did not have many bright spots, but LeBron James was able to score 26 points and Russell Westbrook was right behind him with 17.
There are now some dreams that the Lakers are going to fall out of the play-in game as they are currently the ninth seed in the Western Conference.
Los Angeles is coming into this one on that four-game losing streak and in that span, they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers twice, New Orleans Pelicans, and the Dallas Mavericks.
The Lakers have the 23rd ranked net rating, 24th offensive ranked rating, and the 16th ranked defensive rating.
Warriors Looking To Get Back On Track
The Golden State Warriors haven’t been able to find as much success as of late as they are 3-7 in their last 10 games. The Warriors are also coming into this one on a three-game losing streak as they lost to the Dallas Mavericks twice, and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In their last game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors had no answer for Luka Doncic, as he finished the night with 41 points. Stephen Curry scored 21 points against the Mavericks in the loss, while Jordan Poole was able to lead the way with 23.
Golden State currently has the second-rated net rating, the 11th ranked offensive rating, and the first-ranked defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks —Lakers vs Warriors
For this game, I’m going to go with the Golden State Warriors to cover the spread. Although they have not looked great as of their last 10 games, the Los Angeles Lakers have been one of the more below-average teams seems throughout the entire season and it like their season is about as good as done.
Los Angeles just has no type of fire and passion when they are out there on the court, and I expect Golden State to be able to get back on track sometime soon. The Lakers look like a lost cause the past few weeks, so expect Golden State to win this one pretty easily.
