It is the Thanksgiving season, which means plenty of stuffing and gorging until families are fat and happy. So of course the NBA would have the Los Angeles Lakers play the Golden State Warriors twice in a row. After all, William Blake once said “the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom,” so let’s see how wise these teams are after this game. Tip off is set for around 10:30 PM ET so put down that turkey leg and tune in to watch.

These two games have been excellent opportunities for Steph Curry, 28, and the rest of the Dubs to get revenge on the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers really should be wearing green because they’ve been Kryptonite to the squad with the most-winningest record in NBA history. Not only did LA hand Golden State one of their few losses during the 2015-16 season, they also demolished the Dubs during a Nov. 5 game.
The Lakers won by 20 points, scrubbing the floor with the Dubs, 117-97. They held Steph to 0-for-3 3-point shots, which is unheard of. Klay Thompson, 26, “clanked” 14 of his 18 shots, according to CBS Sports, and that certainly didn’t help in the second half. The Lakers blew past the Warriors, scoring 41 points in the second half.
These games are definitely personal for these two teams, both on and off the court. In fact, it’s almost like two brothers fighting, as the Lakers coach, Luke Walton, was managing the Warriors during the first half of the 2015-16 season.
After Steve Kerr, 51, returned to take his place as coach, the Lakers made an offer that Luke couldn’t refuse. Luke’s move and the success he’s had in revitalizing LA has gotten him some high praise.
“Luke has done a great job of making them believe and playing aggressively,” Gregg Popovich, 67, head coach of the San Antonio Spurs said, according to The New York Times. “I am just so impressed with what he has done with this group.” Hopefully, Gregg will be impressed with the results of this game.
Who do you think is going to win, HollywoodLifers? Are you cheering on Golden State or do you want the Lakers to dominate the Dubs?
