The Golden State Warriors have lost two straight games and will look to rebound in Monday’s final game. The Dubs will take on the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time this season in the Staples Center. The Warriors are just barely in the playoff picture while the Lakers sit atop the Western Conference, so this could be a tough matchup for the visiting team.

Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers, 10:00 p.m. ET TNT

Pick ATS: Lakers -8.5

Los Angeles is riding a five-game winning streak and has won by at least 17 points in four straight games. While the Lakers have lost to lesser teams on multiple occasions they are well-equipped to take down a Warriors team that can’t seem to find consistency.

Player Prop: Anthony Davis O9.5 rebounds

Davis has been far from a dominant rebounder this season but only the San Antonio Spurs, who he’s averaging 10 rebounds per game against, give up more rebounds per contest than the Warriors. He has a major size advantage with Draymond Green at power forward and Warriors players have struggled to shoot from the perimeter as a whole.
