The Golden State Warriors might square off against the Los Angeles Lakers in the play-in tournament. 

Right now, the Warriors, Lakers, and Sacramento Kings are all tied for the eighth spot with two games left in the regular season. All three teams haven't had the season they hoped for.

On his podcast, “The Big Podcast,” Lakers star Shaquille O’Neal said he thinks the Warriors could beat the Lakers if they play each other.

Shaq pointed out that Klay Thompson could be a game-changer for the Warriors. “The Warriors… they’re going to beat the Lakers if they play against the Lakers in the play-in,” Shaq commented. “Klay Thompson is the factor everybody’s not really counting on. We know what Steph’s going to do, but if I can get Klay for two or three games.”

The Warriors want to avoid ending up as the ninth or 10th seed. If they do, they'll need to win two games to make it to the playoffs, instead of just one if they finish eighth.


For the Warriors to have a shot at the eighth seed, they must win their next two games. Otherwise, they could face LeBron James and Anthony Davis in a must-win game, which is a tough spot to be in.
