L.A. Times: Baron Davis was blowing kisses to the crowd, never a good thing for the Lakers.
Recent history was rewritten when the Golden State Warriors ended a nine-game losing streak to the Lakers with a 108-106 victory Friday at Oracle Arena.
It was getting to the point that a Warriors-Lakers game story could be written at tipoff, assuming all the Lakers’ starters were healthy enough to walk out to center court.
The Lakers had also won 14 of their last 15 games against the Warriors, but that went askew as soon as the Lakers did in the final three minutes.
A six-point edge was erased with surprising swiftness, the capper a three-point shot by Davis with 16.8 seconds left, giving the Warriors a 108-104 lead.
Davis then showered the crowd with affection as he ran to the bench. The Warriors had dropped the Lakers, finally.
Nether Kobe Bryant nor Lamar Odom shot well, leaving Andrew Bynum to do most of the high-percentage scoring after he managed to not get ejected while collecting 17 points and 16 rebounds. He made eight of 10 shots, including a swooping third-quarter dunk in which he towered above everybody as he went through the lane.
