Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors 5/10/2023 Picks, Odds and Predictions

West Semifinals – Game 5, LAL lead series 3-1

The Lakers are one win away from advancing to the Western Conference finals as they face the Warriors in Game 5 on Wednesday. They edged out the Warriors in a close Game 4, 104-101, thanks to LeBron James’ 27 points and their slight edge in rebounds, 42-40. James has been the Lakers’ top scorer in the playoffs with 22.3 ppg, followed by Anthony Davis with 21.2 points and 14.1 rebounds per game. D’Angelo Russell has been dishing out 6.0 assists per game for the Lakers, who have been scoring 111.3 points per game.

LeBron led the Lakers with 27 points and added 9 rebounds and 6 assists. PF Anthony Davis continued his strong play on the inside with 23 points and 15 rebounds. Davis has been a difference-maker in the series, as the Warriors do not have the size to stop Davis when he gets going. SG Austin Reaves hit three 3’s on his way to 21 points, and Lonnie Walker was the top scorer off the bench with 15. PG D’Angelo Russell had one of his worst playoff games, scoring only 4 points on 1-10 shooting from the field. Dennis Schroeder was solid in his minutes off the bench at point guard, adding 10 points in his 35 minutes of play. 

  • The total went OVER in 8 of the Los Angeles Lakers’ last 10 games on the road.
  • The total hung OVER in 5 of the LA Lakers’ last 6 games on the road against Golden State.
  • The Lakers are 15-4 SU in their last 19 games with an opponent in the Western Conference.

On the other hand, the Golden State Warriors are in a must-win situation as they try to stave off elimination in Game 5. In Monday’s game, Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 31 points, but despite shooting better overall than the Lakers, at 46.5% compared to 42.9%, they were hampered by 16 turnovers and a poor 29.3% success rate from beyond the arc. 

In the postseason, Curry has been the top scorer for Golden State, averaging 30.6 points per game, while Kevon Looney has been the leading rebounder, averaging 14.1 rebounds per game, and Draymond Green has been the main playmaker, averaging 7.6 assists per game. Klay Thompson is the second-leading scorer with an average of 21.4 points per game, and the Warriors have been scoring an average of 116.7 points per game.

  • The total went OVER in 5 of Golden State’s last 6 games at home against the LA Lakers.
  • The Warriors are 7-13 ATS in their last 20 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Golden State Warriors’ last 6 games played in May. 

Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors. The NBA Pick is the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers have been having the upper hand over the Warriors in their recent meetings, beating the spread in six of the last seven games. They have also been doing well on the road in the playoffs, beating the spread in four of the last five away games. The Warriors have had trouble stopping LeBron James and Anthony Davis in this series, and it’s doubtful they’ll be able to change that in game five. Prediction: the Lakers will win 111-109.
