The Warriors are headed to the playoffs but still that does not seem to be good enough for anyone in the front office, they have made it clear that head coach Mark Jackson´s job depends on wins, so they need to win at all coasts, this guy has really become part of the unite with his players and they need to understand that removing him from this organization will only have a negative aspect on it.
The Lakers are out, gone and waiting for the season to end, they have had the worst season I can remember and they need to get things right but even with the offseason ahead they have little money to work around with, I really don’t see anything big for this team for next year and I think it will just be another disappointing year for the Lakers. I cannot even be sure Kobe will come back, he won’t want to play for a team that plays with no effort, in this one that is all they really need to show, effort might be enough to hang in there because of the lack of defense the Warriors play.
Golden State in my opinion should not be playing their starters, this is a game they can take over from the bench and work a win out of, they should not expose anyone important at this point. Curry and Iguadala must come together as this post season´s one tow punch, working together when it looks like a Curry shot, it s a pass and the other way around.
Pick: For this Warriors team to be successful they need to push harder and play a more unified game. I like them in this game -9.5 because of their abilities to take the paint over with their cutting guards.
