The Golden State Warriors took a significant hit during the NBA Finals, potentially losing Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson for all of next season if either impending free agent chooses to re-sign with the franchise.

Consequently, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook now favors the Los Angeles Lakers to win the 2020 NBA title, bumping their odds from 5-1 to 9-2.

After Durant's ruptured Achilles and Thompson's torn ACL, the Warriors will likely need to rely on Stephen Curry to reach The Finals for a sixth straight season. Those injuries plummeted Golden State's odds from 7-2 to 14-1, the eighth-best odds in the league.
