The Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers are fighting for positioning, heading into the last few days of the regular season. The modern day dynasty versus one of the best dynasties in the history of the NBA here in this game on Tuesday night should provide us with a solid contest. Two of the best players in the world will be facing off in this one, as Steph Curry goes up against LeBron James, with plenty on the line heading into the playoffs. Every win or loss will have a major impact on the standings from here on out, and this game could potentially have a major outcome on how the playoff matchups work out in the West. 

Golden State has put up a quality season and they have been much improved on the road which will likely be one of the sole reasons they make the postseason this year. They will look to wrap up the regular season, with a string of solid performances, as they look to head into the playoffs with as much momentum as possible. They are a modern day dynasty, and they will look to add yet another trophy to their trophy case with a solid run throughout the postseason this year. However, it will certainly not be as easy as it has been in the past as they will have plenty of work cut out for them ahead of a stacked Western Conference. 

If Golden State wants to make a run throughout the postseason, they will need to recapture the magic of their old teams, and they will need to play as a team once again. They will not be able to rely solely on Steph Curry to carry the load throughout the postseason. Otherwise, it will be a quick exit for the Warriors, and it will likely signal the official end of their dynasty as well. Golden State comes into this game with 43 victories through their first 78 games of the season. They will look for their 44th win of the year here on Tuesday night on the road against Los Angeles. They will also look to gain ground on them in the play-in race with a victory here in this one.

It has been a somewhat respectable, but still underwhelming season for the Los Angeles Lakers. It will likely end up in the opening round of the postseason, facing a must win game if they want to get into the original first round. As Los Angeles finds themselves outside of the top seven in the conference. Which means they will have to participate in the play round and pick up a victory in either their first or second game, if they want to advance to the rest of the postseason. With talent like LeBron James and Anthony Davis on your roster you would expect to have a much better finish to the season, but that has not been the case for Los Angeles this year. 

They have struggled with injuries throughout the season and it has been a big reason why they find themselves closer to the bottom half of the standings at the moment. With three games left to play in the regular season, not including this game against Golden State, Los Angeles comes into this game with 45 victories. They will be looking for their 46th victory of the season here in this one on Tuesday night at home. As they look to make a last gasp effort to get out of the play-in round before the postseason starts. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Warriors are 23-16 on the road 

- Golden State 2-1 against Los Angeles this year 

- Lakers are 7-9 against the division 

I look for this to be a close and competitive matchup on Tuesday night, but in the end, I look for the Golden State Warriors to pick up the victory on the road. I look for them to come into Los Angeles and get the job done against the Lakers, both teams gear up for the final push to the postseason. I look for Golden State to pull off the upset win here in this one in Los Angeles against LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I expected strong performance from Steph Curry and his supporting cast here in this one on Tuesday night.
