Now that was a fun one to watch!
The Lakers looked very poor for most of the game, but came through when it mattered putting the clamps down on the Warriors.
The Warriors did shoot 52% for the game, but gave up 15 turnovers and fouled 28 times. Both teams had great production off the bench, but it was Ariza who made the difference late in the game.
Six Lakers had at least 12 points tonight and the Lakers hit 9 of 21 threes and 28 of 33 from the free throw line. Powell doesn’t make the top 3, but he did great tonight!
Now, the bests of the night…
Top 3 Laker Performers -
1) Pau quietly was a beast tonight! 24 points on 15 shots, 13 boards, 5 assists.
2) Trevor was huge off the bench. 17 points, 2 big threes and 2 steals.
3) Kobe did what he had to again. 30 points and 9 assists. 3 steals and 2 blocks. He probably should be number 1, huh?
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Gotta love it when your “shooter” goes 0-4. Sasha.
Play of the Game: Ariza’s back-to-back threes.
