To mount a comeback, they will need an extraordinary effort in the next three games.

While many may see their comeback hopes as delusional, it is precisely this kind of unwavering belief that fuels the underdogs in sports. Steph Curry and Co. will need possible matchups to fight the powerhouse Lakers in the Bay Area to keep their playoff hopes alive.
