Warriors vs Lakers LIVE: 4th Quarter

Montrezl Harrell is the first Lakers sub since Ivica Zubac in January of 2019 to score at least 25 points and shoot 75% or better (he had 27 with 78.6% FG’s vs GSW tonight).

Triple-double for LeBron James with 5 minutes left in the match: 22 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds in 30 minutes, and that’ll be it for his evening.

LAL lead 112-83 as he exits with 6:09 to play. LeBron was +33 for the game.

Lakers have 30 assists on 40 made baskets. They’ve really been sharing the ball, including some really nifty dimes from Kuz and THT.

Great passing from LAL tonight. Kuz dropped off a no-look for a Harrell dunk, and moments later, THT fed Kuz with an extra pass for a dunk. LeBron added a pair of 3’s to quickly push the lead to 108-80.

LAL has the 2nd night of a Back-to-Back tomorrow. They’re up 20 to start the 4th Q and LeBron’s at 25 minutes. He’s starting the 4th, ideally to make sure the margin stays big enough for him to rest, but LAL did blow a 14-point 4th Q lead to GSW on Jan. 18.

Warriors vs Lakers LIVE: 3rd Quarter

Lakers lead by 20 points going into the final quarter.

Bench points: 49-19. Harrell is now 10 for 11 for 25, Kuzma 4 for 8 with 3 3’s, THT 3 for 5, and Matthews 1 for 2.

Markieff Morris is available to return tonight after being subbed out at the 8:02 mark due to a right knee contusion.

LAL has led GSW by at least 19 points in each of their 3 games this season. They’re currently up by 86-69 with 3:15 left in the 3rd Q.

LeBron is drilling fadeaway after fadeaway tonight. He’s 6 of 7 from 2, only 2 buckets at the rim.

KCP is now 3 for 3 from 3, and in an encouraging sign, he launched his latest transition attempt with no conscience, which was how he was playing early this season. LAL lead 80-62

Warriors vs Lakers LIVE: 2nd Quarter

Strong first half from LAL. GSW leads the NBA in assists with 27.7 per game, but LAL has a 19-12 halftime edge there, holding GSW to 42.5% FG’s while shooting a lights-out 68.6%.

LAL used a quick 11-2 run in the final 1:36 of the half to open a 65-47 lead, until a turnover in the final seconds led to a buzzer-beating 3 from Wiggins.

Nonetheless, LAL outscored GSW 36-21 in the 2nd Q. Big half from the bench, led by 19 points on 7 of 8 FG’s from Harrell.

Montrezl Harrell had 6 points in 11 minutes vs. GSW on Feb. 28, then 6 points in 19 min. vs. PHX on March 2. Since then: 26 points, 12 boards at SAC; 17 points, 6 boards, 3 blocks vs. IND; (and in the 1st half tonight: 19 points, 4 boards)

After LeBron checked out, and Curry/Green in, LAL immediately fouled a 3-point shooter (McKinnie fouled Poole) and then backed off Steph in transition (Schroder). Warriors got 5 points out of it, though Harrell answered w/4 straight points. LAL up 52-42.
Lakers’ lead is up to 10 as LeBron + bench has controlled the play against GSW’s 2nd unit sans Curry and Green. Harrell is up to 11 points already to lead LAL thus far.

A 5-point swing as LAL could have built upon a 7-0 run with a 3-on-2 in transition, but LeBron had a rare turnover in that situation, and rookie Nico Mannion hit his 2nd 3 on the other end. LAL lead is at 38-32 nonetheless after a LeBron dunk.

Still, 8:32 left in the 2nd Q.

Warriors vs Lakers LIVE: 1st Quarter

LAL scored on their final 4 possessions of the 1st Q (THT dunk, Kuz 3, Harrell layup, Matthews 3) to open a 29-24 lead, before a late layup from Curry (15 points) made it a 3-point Lakers margin after 12 minutes. Eight of the 9 Lakers who played scored at least 2 points.

Steph Curry has 15 points in the 1st Quarter. LA Lakers commit 8 turnovers.

All of a sudden, LAL has 8 1st Q turnovers. The weekend off may have helped them energy-wise, but they have not been sharp, and GSW has taken advantage with a 21-19 edge.

Kuzma’s averages from his last 2 games: 24.5 points, 13.0 rebounds, 47.4% FG’s, 43.8% 3’s. He’s also averaging 11.0 rebounds per game in his last 6 games, in 28.1 minutes per game.

Good overall start for LAL here coming off 2 days rest (GSW played last night). They lead 15-12 as the teams get into their benches, where GSW has been a bit thin and inexperienced.

Markieff Morris has a pair of early 3’s for the Lakers, but GSW has answered with Curry and Oubre to take an early 9-8 lead over LAL. Meanwhile, LeBron has 2 early Personal fouls as things get going in San Francisco.

Frank Vogel on Jared Dudley’s knee injury: “You’re always disappointed when one of your guys goes down … just hoping he has as speedy a recovery as possible.
His impact is invaluable to our culture … his glue in connecting guys … teaching guys, putting guys in the right spot … we expect that to be the same (while he’s injured).
Frank Vogel confirmed that Alex Caruso (concussion protocol) and Marc Gasol (NBA’s health and safety protocols) will be out of tonight’s game at Golden State, and added that both will also be out for tomorrow night’s home game against Minnesota.
