The Warriors average 108.3 points a night while allowing just 98, a league-best point differential. Golden State played on Monday, defeating the Sacramento Kings, 128-108.
Teams have to gear their defenses specifically to try to deal with Curry's shooting range, ball-handling and playmaking, and Thompson isn't far behind Curry.
The Lakers have Kobe Bryant, but he's been fighting through fatigue and struggling to hit shots he's used to making.
The Warriors rely heavily on two role players, defensive forward Draymond Green and reserve forward/center Marreese Speights.
Green has developed offensively, adding an outside threat to the Warriors starting lineup.
Speights is a primary scorer for the team off the bench.
The Lakers need to generate enough offense, from players such as Jordan Hill, Carlos Boozer, Bryant, Young and Lin while dealing with the myriad of weapons at the Warriors' disposal.
The Warriors are a particularly difficult matchup for the Lakers, and, given the Lakers' recent play, a win would be quite the long shot
