Warriors, to open NBA campaign vs Lakers

Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers to meet at the opening of the 2022-23 NBA season on October 19, 2022 at 10:05 AM (GMT+8). This match is undeniably one of the most awaited NBA matches this season, as these two are two of the most powerhouse squad in the league. This match will also be a battle of two of the NBA greats, Lebron James and Stephen Curry. It will be the Warriors hosting the Lakers for this match.

This match is a great starter for both squads as they both want to end their season in an impressive victory. Last season, the Warriors took home the title, which is a little unexpected as they are not one of the early favorites. On the other hand, as for the Lakers, last season is one of their most disappointing season. While injuries hurt Lakers last season, the Warriors are lucky as they got Thompson back, just in-time for the playoffs. Now, this match-up will be exciting as the Warriors meet a healthier Lakers squad.

A controversy between two of their members will not stop the Warriors from chasing their fifth title since 2015. Last season, despite having Stephen Curry, the Warriors are not one of the favorites to win the title. However, the way they played last season ended all doubts for their squad. Luck is really on their side as Klay Thompson returned stronger as ever just in-time for the playoffs. Last season, the Warriors went 53-29 in the Western Conference, and 31-10 at home. Additionally, they gave up 105.5 points per game last season, which means they need to work a little more in their defense. Nonetheless, the Warriors are already a great team with experience and talent among their squad.

It will be Lebron James’ 20th season in the NBA, making him the eight player in the league history to play that much season. Finally, James will be playing with a complete squad along with Anthony Davis, Russel Westbrook, and Carmelo Anthony. This squad’s 2021-22 season does not look good as they failed to even clinch the playoffs. Last season, this squad has a record of 33-49 overall, a not-so-good view for all Lakers fans. However, they managed to average 24.0 assists per game and made 41.6 field goals last season. Thankfully for the Lakers, no injuries are reported so far for their squad.

Prediction:

Golden State Warriors
Total Under: 116.5
Odds: 0.96
