Los angeles lakers are getting closer to pressing the panic button every day and it is that despite the fact that we are still in preseason and do not jump to conclusions, as LeBron James pointed out, the team does not finish carbureting and added its fifth defeat in as many preparation matches by falling by 99-111 before some Warriors sin Stephen Curry ni Draymond Green.
On the contrary, the Angelenos put all the meat on the grill and jumped to the Staples Center with LeBron James (17 points and six rebounds), Russell Westbrook (10 + 10 + 6) and Anthony Davis in the quintet. It was the first time that Frank Vogel had his ‘Big Three’ in this preseason, but even so the team did not manage to function as expected.
Along with the all-star trio Vogel also introduced Carmelo Anthony, completing a luxury poker with a total of 42 All Star appearances. On the other hand, the Warriors came out without any of their two great stars and with the controversial Wiggins as the top figure.
The Angelenos took advantage of the circumstances and hand in hand Davis (20 points, six rebounds and two blocks) they managed to break the scoreboard in the first quarter with a 32-24 that seemed to be just the prelude to what was to come. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Warriors, who have four victories in four games played this preseason, began to tighten on defense and They left the Angelenos without an answer, who did not win again in any of the three remaining sets to be disputed. Jordan Poole took scoring responsibility in the absence of Curry and led Kerr’s team with 18 points., while newcomer Otto Porter was left with 16.
