Golden State Warriors will face Los Angeles Lakers 4 times in 5 preseason matches

The arrangement of a strange preseason fixture gave Golden State Warriors a match against the Los Angeles Lakers four times in just two weeks.

Golden State Warriors fans are prepared because they will be seeing LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers players a lot ... during the preseason period.

According to the preseason schedule, announced by the NBA, the Dub Nation team will meet the yellow and purple team in four of the pre-season friendly matches. The only exception came to the Golden State Warriors at the second preseason match when they faced the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors will meet a total of 8 times, 4 Preseason matches and 4 matches at Regular Season.

The reason for this strange schedule is said to be Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers are two teams that are quite close together geographically. However, the West Coast region still has other teams like Sacramento Kings or LA Clippers, which makes this explanation pointless.

Anyway, the schedule has been released and the Los Angeles Lakers will be Warriors' opponents in 4 out of 5 appearances at Preseason. With so much competition, it is likely that the stars of both teams will appear less, just like what happened in the previous season.

At that time, Golden State and Lakers met twice. While Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson came out in both matches for Warriors, LeBron James was absent for 1 in 2 encounters.

After all, these are just friendly matches before the NBA 2019-20 season. Therefore, the winning factor in these matches is not important. Only thing, fans will expect Stephen Curry to not recreate this image if he is re-exported at Staples Center.
