Warriors tip off against Lakers

Sports 17 Aug, 2022 Follow News

King James against Curry is always thrilling

When the NBA begins the Golden State Warriors will host the Los Angeles Lakers, with the Boston Celtics facing the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Lakers and Warriors played on opening night a season ago, but that game, a Warriors win, was played in Los Angeles. This time, as the Warriors are the defending champions, they will start the season at home and receive their championship rings with the Lakers in attendance, on Oct. 18.

It looks like an easy night for the Warriors. The Lakers have made no significant changes to their roster yet. They are pursuing Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving. Whether Irving is available or not, the Lakers are still pursuing trades to move off Russell Westbrook, their disappointing addition of a season ago. Whether or not the Lakers are able to improve, LeBron James vs. Stephen Curry is the biggest draw here.

In the other matchup, the Celtics are hoping to build upon last season’s success, which ended after Curry and the Warriors toppled them in the NBA Finals. The same goes for the Sixers who hope that a full season of Joel Embiid and James Harden will make a big difference.
