Neither the Lakers (No. 7) nor the Warriors (No. 6), though, are fancied as their normal world-beaters this season. And, interestingly enough, this is the first time the two teams have met in the playoffs since 1991.
The age-old question of rest vs. momentum will also be tested, as Golden State advanced on Sunday, while Los Angeles knocked Memphis out on Friday. That game was all LA, as the Lakers won by 40 points, with D'Angelo Russell posting 31 points. James scored 22, and Anthony Davis added 16.
The Warriors are no strangers to high-scoring games, as Curry posted a career-high 50 points in Game 7 against the Kings. He hit 20 of 38 from the field, and seven of those were 3-pointers.
DraftKings, at the time of publication, still has the Warriors (-190) as favorites, and Lakers (+160) as the underdogs. So, betting $190 on the Warriors would earn you $100, and a $100 bet on the Lakers would net you $160.
Here's everything you need to know to watch the Lakers vs. Warriors live stream online.

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package? With the right pick from our best cable TV alternatives, you'll be able to watch it and all of the NBA playoff games. But for as much as we like FuboTV, it doesn't have TNT.
Instead, get Sling TV, one of the best streaming services. ABC games will simulcast on ESPN3, which is available through Sling Orange. ABC is also available in select markets for Sling Blue. Those markets are Chicago (WLS), Fresno (KFSN), Houston (KTRK), Los Angeles (KABC), New York (WABC), Philadelphia (WPVI), Raleigh-Durham (WTVD) and San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose (KGO). All but Fresno, Houston and Raleigh will pay $5 more per month for ABC in either Sling Blue or Sling Orange & Blue.
Oh, and not only is Sling 50% off for the first month is a perfect place to watch all of the NBA playoffs, as ABC games will simulcast on ESPN3. Sling Orange gets you TNT, ESPN, ESPN3, and its Sports Extra pack gets you NBA TV.
Of course, you can also watch the games on the more expensive services, such as YouTube TV ($73 per month, but $63 per month for the first three months), Hulu + Live TV ($70 per month) and DirecTV Stream ($75 per month, down to $65 per month for the first three months).
ABC can be pulled down with one of the best TV antennas.
Sling TV: You can get ESPN and TNT in the Sling Orange package. The 30-plus channels in the lineup include AMC, CNN, Food Network, AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV and many more. And you can save 50% on your first month!
Can you watch Lakers vs. Warriors live streams in the UK?
NBA fans in the U.K. may not be able to watch the Lakers vs Warriors live stream. While the NBA Playoffs have been available on Sky Sports Arena, this game isn't in the listings (though those may just need to be updated). Sky Sports is airing Heat vs. Knicks Game 2, after all.
If you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £24/month to add those channels. You'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.
If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. Pricing starts at £11.98 for day & mobile month membership, with month-long access for £34.99.

Can you watch Lakers vs Warriors live streams in Australia?
Probably. Aussies can watch the 2023 Playoff live streams on Kayo Sports, a major destination for NBA action. ESPN Australia, if you get it, is another means, but it's unclear if either will host the Lakers vs Warriors live stream.
Kayo offers a 14-day free trial for both its Basic and Premium plans, more than enough time to confirm they're actually showing the games. The Kayo One package costs $25 per month thereafter, and Kayo Basic is $30.
The $35 per month Premium Kayo plan gives you all the same things as the normal plan, but it offers three simultaneous streams. The Basic plan gives you two streams at the same time.
Not in Australia but usually a Kayo subscriber? You may need a little help from a service such as ExpressVPN.
