Skip Bayless has made his prediction for tonight's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors to define the 7th seed in the Western Conference. 

Curiously, this time he didn't go against LeBron James, focusing his attention on a different player. Bayless has been known for attacking fan favorites like Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard and Stephen Curry, his latest victim. 

On Tuesday, he took to Twitter to reveal what he expects to see once the Warriors play the Lakers. According to the controversial analyst, the Warriors point guard will be double and triple-teamed, leading to a stormy night on the offensive end. 

"I expect Steph Curry, hounded by 2 or 3 Lakers every possession, to go 2-14 from three tomorrow night at Staples. And I expect the Lakers to win by 20."

Of course, fans took notice of this, and while some said he was trying to jinx the Lakers, others made a case for Curry and why he is going off tonight at the Staples Center. 

This is a big duel between two teams that didn't have the best season. The Warriors will try to surprise the Lakers and beat them at home while the purple and gold want to finish things early and focus on their next rival, which would be the Phoenix Suns.
