Apr 12, Lakers v Warriors: The first of the Lakers’ last three regular season games, all of which are against playoff-bound teams. Kobe and team have done well against the Warriors this season, already beating them two out of three times. However, the last matchup between the two, on March 25, went Golden State’s way. Given that Mark Jackson’s boys are trying their best to avoid giving up the sixth spot to the Houston Rockets, this could be a difficult W for the Lakers.
