Lakers jump on Warriors early, roll to easy win

LeBron James scored 19 points as the Los Angeles Lakers pounded the visiting Golden State Warriors, 117-91, on Sunday, February 28 (Monday, March 1, Manila time).

James, who also had 6 rebounds, hit 7 of 12 shots, including 3 of 5 three-pointers in a season-low 24 minutes. He and the Lakers' starters rested the entire 4th quarter.

Markieff Morris contributed 13 points and 8 rebounds, Alex Caruso also scored 13, and Dennis Schroder collected 12 points and 6 assists for the Lakers.

Kyle Kuzma had 12 points and 11 rebounds, while Talen Horton-Tucker scored 11 off the bench.

Stephen Curry, who entered the game averaging 29.9 points per game, managed just 16 points, 7 assists, and 3 steals as the Warriors had their three-game winning streak end. Curry misfired on 5 of the 7 three-pointers he attempted.

The Warriors lost Draymond Green late in the 2nd quarter with a left ankle sprain. Green, who recorded a career-high 19 assists in their win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, finished with 6 points and 2 assists in 13 minutes.

Golden State's Eric Paschall scored 18 points and Kelly Oubre Jr added 14.

The Lakers, who led by as much as 35 points, blew the contest open in the first half. They grabbed a 29-point halftime lead and kept Golden State at bay in the second half.

The Lakers used a 12-0 run to close the 1st quarter for a 41-21 lead. In the 2nd quarter, the Lakers increased the margin to 60-31 after a layup by Horton-Tucker with 4:23 left.

James drilled a deep three-pointer to put Los Angeles up 73-44 at the break.

The Lakers outshot the Warriors 51.2% to 39.5% in the first half. They also had the edge in three-point shooting, going 9-of-20 to 4-of-17 for the Warriors before intermission.

Overall, Los Angeles made 47.6% of its shots to 40% for Golden State. On three-pointers, the Lakers were 11 of 31 compared to 8 of 34 for the Warriors. – Rappler.com
