The Warriors are easily the best team in the league, although the San Antonio Spurs (34-6) aren't far behind.
The Warriors have dominated the Lakers, and the entire league this season, led by Stephen Curry's 29.8 points and 6.5 assists a game.
Curry is shooting 50.7% from the field, 44.4% from three-point range and 90.5% from the free-throw line.
The Lakers will try to stop him with Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell and possibly Lou Williams, Anthony Brown and anyone else Coach Byron Scott can think of.
When the Lakers lost to the Warriors on Jan. 5, 109-88, Thompson was Golden State's leading scorer with 36 points.
Clarkson had a big game with 23 points, but the Lakers shot just 31.9% from the field.
The Lakers played without Bryant; he's hoping to play his final career game at Golden State on Thursday.
The Warriors may be fatigued on the second night of a back-to-back, but they're still the heavy favorite over the Lakers.
