So far nothing is going to plan for Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. The Los Angeles Lakers have now extended their lead in the series, to 3-1. This means that the Warriors are on the brink of elimination, as the series move to the Chase Center. King James and the Lakers are in a comfortable spot, after winning the game at home.
Steph finds himself in the same position LeBron James found himself in the 2016 NBA finals after Game 4. The Warriors led the Cleveland Cavaliers 3-1 after Game 4. However, the Warriors ended up bottling it up, with the Cavs winning the NBA title in Game 7 at the Chase Center. On the other hand, a Corgi has got the predictions of the series right till Game 4, If things go as he the Corgi predicted, Curry could finally get his revenge from 2016.

Lilo, who is also known as Air Corgi, Fluffy Mamba, and Steph Furry, has accurately predicted the Lakers-Warriors series. The video was uploaded on TikTok, predicting the outcome of the series. Lilo pokes the ball in the air, and the ball falls down the stairs, with 2 buckets, with the team’s logo. So far he has got four of his predictions right. “this dog is now 4-0 in the Lakers vs Warriors series,” tweeted a Twitter user.
The Golden State Warriors will now play Game 5 at home. If they lose this game, they will be knocked out once again by the hands of King James. It is a do-or-die situation that the Warriors find themselves in after the Game 4 loss, 104-101. The Warriors looked likely to win the game, but couldn’t finish it off. Nonetheless, the Warriors know the situation they are in and will be focused on bringing their A-game against the Lakers.
Can Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors turn the series around after going down 3-1?
The Warriors had ample opportunity to finish off the game before they found themselves in a difficult spot in the fourth quarter. The Warriors finished the first half ahead of the Lakers, however, the Lakers had a steady growth throughout the game. Jordan Poole has been unable to make an impact in the series after coming off a strong regular season. The scoring load on Stephen Curry is immense, as he has been consistent throughout the playoffs.
LAKERS GO UP 3-1.

In the last game, Curry put up a triple-double performance and ended up on the losing side. Thompson and especially Poole need to pick up their game if they wish to defend their title. Nevertheless, the Lakers are a revived team and will not take things lightly with the possibility of finishing off the series. As seen in the past, the Warriors can very well make a come-back, but there is a high chance the Lakers will go through.
