Is This The End Of The Golden State Warriors' Title Defense? The Los Angeles Lakers have the Warriors on the ropes entering Game 5 on Wednesday. Lonnie Walker IV came out of nowhere in the fourth quarter of Game 4 to give the Lakers an extra push and a 3–1 series lead. The series shifts back to the Bay Area where the Warriors have been much better at home than on the road this season.

Stephen Curry dropped a triple-double (31 points, 14 assists, 10 rebounds) in Game 4, but he needs the extra help. Anthony Davis had another big night, and odd-numbered are usually where he shines. If AD comes out big in Game 5, the Lakers could be headed to the Western Conference Finals. If the Warriors get home court advantage, Game 6 will be in Los Angeles on .
