The Lakers are one game away from the Western conference finals after 2 big wins on their home court in Games 3 and 4.

Obviously LeBron James and Anthony Davis have played huge roles in the Lakers success so far but Game 4 turned into the Lonnie Walker IV show.

He dropped 15 points and led a huge push for the Lakers in the 4th quarter to pick up a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Tonight in Chase Center, Walker and the rest of the Lakers will have to be ready for a huge push from the defending champions to stay alive in this series and send it back to LA for Game 6.

And I think we see a big performance from the defending champs.

Best Bet

This is my favorite bet of the night.

It is hard to imagine the Warriors not coming out tonight and absolutely handling their business at home to extend this series.

I know 7 is a lot of points but it’s a big spread for a reason. We could see a similar game like we saw in game 2, when the Warriors came out and dominated the Lakers from start to finish to win big, 127-100.

Give me the Warriors to cover and win by 10+ again to send this series back to Los Angeles for an electric Game 6.

Player Prop of the Game

Klay Thompson o4.5 3 pointers (-104) FanDuel

Can Klay Thompson bounce back at home after 2 down games from behind the Arc?

I love Klay tonight.

He has been pretty pedestrian the last 2 games in LA, but in games 1 and 2, he was on fire.

Klay hit 6 3’s in game 1 and a scorching 8 in game 2. He has had the volume all series, with 9+ attempts in every game so far and that number jumps to 11+ at home.

No doubt Steph Curry will get his shots but Klay will get his as well and we just need him to knock them down.

He will tonight.

I love the 6+ as well for the value. He had 6+ in both home games so far in this series and I could see another explosion again tonight.
