After eliminating the Kings in seven games in the first round, the Warriors are set to face the Lakers in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Although it will be the first time that the two teams face each other in the playoffs in a long time, there are familiar faces on both sides.
LeBron James, who battled the Dubs in the Finals through 2015-2018 is now a Laker and Golden State still has its score of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr talked about the upcoming matchup against Los Angeles.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity,” Kerr said after Game 7. “I think the Lakers changed their team dramatically at the trade deadline. They made some brilliant moves and became an entirely different team.
“Darvin [Ham] has done an incredible job guiding that team. They’re excellent defensively. We they’ve got one of the all-time greats in LeBron. But a lot of talent across the roster. So it’s going to take a big effort to beat them and we know how good they are.”
