    The Los Angeles Lakers will be without LeBron James (ankle) when they visit the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. Both teams have been red-hot as they entered the All-Star break having won six of their last seven games. Golden State (27-26) posted a 140-137 victory at Utah last Thursday, while Los Angeles (30-26) defeated the Jazz 138-122 on the road the previous night. The Lakers edged the Warriors 145-144 in double overtime at Golden State last month in their first meeting of the season.

    Tip-off at Chase Center is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET. Golden State is a 6-point favorite in the latest Warriors vs. Lakers odds according to SportsLine consensus, while the over/under for total points scored is 243.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). 

    Before you make any Lakers vs. Warriors picks, you NEED to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

    The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit for $100 players on its top-rated NBA picks over the past five-plus seasons. The model enters Week 18 of the 2023-24 NBA season on a sizzling 60-36 roll on all top-rated NBA picks this season, returning nearly $2,300. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!

    The model knows Golden State is led by 3-point shooting extraordinaire Stephen Curry, who is 19th in the NBA with a 42.1 shooting percentage from beyond the arc. The two-time league MVP and scoring champion leads all players this campaign with 599 3-point attempts and 252 3-pointers made - 116 and 71 more than Dallas' Luka Doncic, who is second in both categories. Curry is sixth in the NBA with an average of 28 points and has recorded two of his four double-doubles on the season in his last three games - both against Utah.

    The model also is aware that Anthony Davis is 15th in the league in scoring (24.9 points), fifth in blocks (2.5) and third in rebounds (12.2) while recording 42 double-doubles to rank fourth. Davis is coming off an effort against Utah in which he registered game highs of 37 points and 15 boards. In addition, the Lakers are 8-2 in their last 10 meetings against Golden State and they've won nine of their last 11 games played in February. See who to back at SportsLine
