It's very safe to assume that in order for the Warriors to upset the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, Steph Curry needs to have a huge game.
The good news is that the two-time NBA MVP is playing the best basketball of his career.
The bad news is that he has struggled from beyond the arc in Southern California.
If you're a Warriors fan and are looking for some good vibes, Steph did drill a massive triple in Golden State's come-from-behind win at Staples Center back on Jan. 18:
But you better believe the Lakers are going to trap and swarm Steph all over the court. They are going to force the ball out of his hands as much as possible, and make the other Warriors players beat them.
So Steph might have to do a lot of his damage in transition before the Lakers set up their half-court defense. And to do that, the Warriors' defense needs to be stout and keep the massive Lakers frontcourt off the glass.
