The Los Angeles Lakers stole Game 1 on the road, then the Golden State Warriors got revenge in Game 2 with a blowout win. Now, the series shifts to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Saturday, and there are plenty of questions. The Lakers need Anthony Davis to be the Game 1 version, and the Warriors need more of a Game 2 Draymond Green. This can effectively swing the series in that team’s favor.
Jamichal Green was a surprise spot starter in place of Kevon Looney on Thursday. Looney still played off the bench and his rebounding prowess was needed against the Lakers. Both teams seem to be tiring as the minutes pile up and games drag on. Whichever team can find its legs longer will have a distinct advantage.
