The NBA Finals are here, and we're already getting way ahead of ourselves for next season. 

On Tuesday morning, we found out the dates for two Warriors 2021 preseason games. The Los Angeles Lakers announced they will play the Warriors during the preseason twice, once on Oct. 8 and once on Oct. 12. 

The first matchup will play at Chase Center and the second in LA. 

Golden State did not play the Lakers in the preseason this season, but did so four times in the 2019-20 season.

During this past regular season, the Warriors and Lakers squared off four times. The Lakers beat the Warriors three out of four times. 

After disappointing 2020-21 seasons for the two teams, both the Warriors and Lakers will look to be back as the best in the West next season.
