The Los Angeles Lakers will look to go all in offensively with the chance to advance to the Conference Finals on the line this Friday.

Per Dave Mcmenamin of ESPN, coach Darvin Ham will start Dennis Schröder in place of Jarred Vanderbilt as they are just hours away to face the Golden State Warriors in Game 6.

Earlier in pregame, Ham already hinted that he may apply a new starting lineup against the Dubs. As such, Schröder’s integration with D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, LeBron James and Anthony Davis can only hint their intent to match Golden State’s small ball five that features Draymond Green at center.

When sharing the court, Schröder, Russell, James and Davis are tallying +4.0 net rating upon their 18-minute exposure altogether (h/t Spectrum SportsNet’s Mike Trudell).

In five games so far this series against the Warriors, the veteran guard is averaging 11.8 points, 2.6 dimes in nearly 41 percent shooting.
