Warriors Look to Secure Six-Seed With Win Over Lakers

Golden State needs a win to stay in sixth seed

The Warriors would like to grab a win on Friday night when they visit the Lakers at the Staples Center. It would help them prepare for the playoffs by securing a berth. They would also move closer to nabbing the six-seed in the post-season. The Warriors have lost 11 straight road games to the Lakers and would love to snap that streak tonight while also clinching a berth in the playoffs. The Warriors need to play well to improve their confidence.

Lakers trying to avoid franchise record for losses

Los Angeles was eliminated from playoff contention quite some time ago, really ever since Kobe Bryant went down, but they are still playing for something important. They want to avoid setting the franchise record for losses in a season, which they tied with their most recent loss to the Houston Rockets. Just one more loss this season and they will set the new club record for losses with 54. The current mark was set in 1957-58.

We head over to the sportsbook found at BetOnline.ag to find the betting odds for the Warriors and the Lakers on Friday night. The Warriors are 9.5-point road chalk over the Lakers, which is one reason why we will lay the line with 15 percent of our bankroll. The other reason is that the Warriors simply need this win more than the Lakers.
