SAN DIEGO—The Los Angeles Lakers lost another preseason game against the Golden State Warriors 123-112, on Wednesday, October 19. This was Luke Walton’s second game against his former team.

Starting the game was a strong young core that consisted of Nick Young, D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, and Timofey Mozgov. Despite a strong offense led by D’Angelo Russell, it was not enough to stop Golden State from quickly dominating the game.

The Lakers bench consisted of Lou Williams, Larry Nance Jr, Marcelo Huertas, Metta World Peace, and Brandon Ingram. The Golden State Warriors were able to lock down the Lakers for most of the second quarter with good defense and even better passing.

Luke Walton shifted some players around like Brandon Ingram who played as the power forward and Julius Randle as a center. Ingram was able to generate fast plays which helped the team build momentum.

Despite good plays from Ingram and three-pointers from Young, Golden State was able to control the game and were up 52-43 at halftime.

Kevin Durant lead the offense in the third quarter, while the Lakers slowly got back into the game. It did not take long for Golden State to have a 10-point lead. By the end of the third quarter, Warriors lead 87-77.

By the fourth quarter, Warrior’s Coach Steve Kerr had Curry and Durant come off the bench. Durant and Curry stole the show and were too much for the Lakers defense. Ingram’s performance was great as he scored 21 points with seven rebounds by the end of the fourth quarter. Despite a strong start from the Lakers, it was not enough to keep Golden State grounded. The final score was 123-112.

The Lakers take on the Pheonix Suns at home, on October 21.
