There are multiple analysts predicting that the Golden State Warriors will score a necessary win on Wednesday night, beating the Los Angeles Lakers in San Francisco and keeping their season alive.
But one person doesn’t think that will happen: Skip Bayless.
On Wednesday’s episode of Undisputed, Bayless said he believes The Lakers will end the series on Golden State’s court:
“I first guessed Lakers in 5. They’re going to go close them out up there because Golden State is on their last leg. They know full well in the bottom of their hearts and souls the Lakers are better than them.”

When the series started, the Lakers were underdogs to win against the Warriors.
However, they stole a crucial Game 1 victory on the road and that was just the beginning.
Their last two wins have been the most important and it has left the Warriors on the ropes.
The conventional wisdom says that Golden State has a very good chance of winning Wednesday’s game.
They will be on their home court and their role players will have a better chance of performing well, even though they have had a few rough showings lately.
Additionally, many on the Lakers roster are going to be very tired following such a long series.
Still, Bayless thinks that the Warriors are lacking the heart to win it all now that they have seen just how challenging the Lakers are.
If the Warriors do lose this series, it’ll be a painful end to a tumultuous season.
As for the Lakers, it’ll be further proof of how much stronger they have gotten since their big changes in February.
Only one team can win this series: Bayless believes that team will be the Lakers and they will do it on Wednesday night.NEXT: The Odds Have Reportedly Shifted For Lakers To Win The West
