Durant leads Warriors' 2nd straight win over Lakers, 109-85

"I don't think we see them for a little while, so get that game out of our head and get our swag back". "We were very bad, and they were terrible, the people who bought tickets should get their money back honestly". "They were bad. The people who bought tickets should get their money back honestly". "I don't know if it was the worst basketball game ever".

Down their top three scoring starters against arguably the most talented team in the National Basketball Association, the Los Angeles Lakers performed admirably on Friday night against the Golden State Warriors.

Head coach Steve Kerr cited how Durant has fit with the Warriors since joining the team this summer.

Los Angeles scored the first four points of the fourth to take the lead, but stopped hitting shots.

The 19-year-old was aggressive offensively throughout the night looking to be a factor off the dribble and finding his spots on the floor.

Golden State had a minor scare in the third quarter when Draymond Green landed awkwardly and twisted his ankle. Young jammed his pointer toe during Tuesday's win against the Thunder before posting eight points on only 3-of-8 shooting against the Warriors. You know Golden State is obviously a premier team in this league, and I don't even think they were great tonight.

The last time the Warriors were in this building, the Lakers pulled off an upset that resulted in an unexpected 20-point thumping.

Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell remains sidelined for at least the next two weeks after having a non-invasive procedure earlier this week on his sore left knee. McCaw has averaged 16.8 minutes in the eight games since returning November 9 from an ankle injury that sidelined him for less than two weeks.

"I definitely don't want to force anything", Russell said Saturday at the Lakers' training facility in his first public comments since the injection. That's the plan (to play on Saturday). Kerr asked. Kerr also said that the Lakers had at least an excuse for missing some key players in the game.

The Warriors grabbed the lead early in the first quarter and comfortably led throughout the contest. Jordan Clarkson hit a triple with around 4:30 left to cut the Warriors lead to 43-39.

A Warriors error was the Lakers' only true highlight.

Rookie Brandon Ingram scored 16 points while making the starting lineup for the first time in his National Basketball Association career, filling in at the forward spot for the injured Julius Randle (hip-pointer). During that stretch, Calderon has averaged eight points on 52.9 percent shooting and 4.3 assists in 18.66 minutes per game.

The Warriors led for the remainder of the game, with the Lakers in the second half getting no closer than 11. The Warriors, on the other hand, shot a healthier 43.9 percent and made 46.7 percent of their three-pointers. They have, nevertheless, won their tenth game on the trot now and are sitting happily at the top of the Western Conference with a 14-2 record.

The fans at Staples Center, however, did not seem bothered by the Lakers' loss. "Obviously having three starters out, having to play guys out of position and big minutes, I think, made the challenge more hard".

Kevin Durant had 28 points, six rebounds and five assists while Klay Thompson scored 26 points; Rookie Ian Clark added 21 points off the bench for Golden State.
