The Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers are currently occupying the 8th and the 7th places in the Western Conference, respectively.
Should they remain in those places when the regular season ends, there is a possibility for these two teams to meet in the play-in tournament. That would be the case if both teams win their respective games against the 9th and the 10th seeds.
Dubs’ star Steph Curry was asked if he thought the league would enjoy a Warriors-Lakers 7 versus 8 matchup in the play-in tournament. His response was word-less, yet very clear. The three-time NBA champion just kept nodding.
