How to beat the Lakers and Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals

The Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors are headed to a first-round matchup in the NBA Finals.

But with both teams battling injuries, who will emerge victorious?

The Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are the favorites to win the title.

However, there are several teams in the top-seeded Los Angeles Laker lineup that could see some upsets.

This list contains the five biggest upsets that could befall these teams.

The San Antonio Chargers are the reigning NBA champions, but the team is set to lose three starters and two key veterans in the next season.

That will likely put a huge strain on this team, which is already without its leading scorer and playmaker, Philip Rivers.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has the Spurs facing some big challenges, but he may have the most to overcome as they battle the defending NBA champions.

This team is going to be hard to beat, and Popovich is a veteran coach with a history of winning championships.

The team also has a great history of making the playoffs and will likely be able to make the finals.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is also in line to make an NBA championship team, but with the addition of veteran guard Patrick Willis, he could struggle to get the offense rolling against a Warriors team that is loaded with talent.

This Los Angeles Kings team could be looking to avenge the 2017 Western Conference Finals loss, as the Los Angeles team has a lot of talent, but they are going to need to find a way to get to the second round.

With the loss of guard Brandon Ingram, the Kings will need to rely on a few players, such as point guard DeMarcus Cousins and forward Ben McLemore, to help them win this series.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and San Francisco 49er have the potential to be one of the biggest upsETS possible for the Los, Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets.

These teams are both in the midst of rebuilding, and both teams are looking to make their first postseason appearance since the 2004 Western Conference finals.

The San Francisco Kings are hoping to add another star to their already talented roster, as they will likely have the chance to go into the postseason as a No. 1 seed.

However, it will be tough for the Kings to make it through the first round, as San Francisco will face off against the Los Vegas Kings in the first matchup of the series.

The Warriors will also be facing off against San Antonio, and this could prove to be a very entertaining matchup.

The Houston Rockets will look to make a deep run into the playoffs as they look to extend their winning streak to five games.

With that said, this team will likely need to come out of the gate strong and be able win a series to ensure their place in the playoffs.
