The Los Angeles Lakers ended their three-game winning streak on Tuesday night with a 109-88 loss to the Golden State Warriors. Being without both Kobe Bryant (sore shoulder) and D’Angelo Russell (sore throat) didn’t help matters as Klay Thompson steam rolled to a career-high 22 first quarter points.
Lakers rookie Anthony Brown once again got the start Tuesday, finishing with just four points on 1-6 shooting. Head coach Byron Scott has continuously praised his effort, but is looking for more offensive consistency from the proclaimed “3-and-D” type player. Jordan Clarkson led the Lakers with 23 points, his 18th career 20+ point scoring game, adding five boards, but it simply was not enough to stay competitive with the reigning champs.
With Russell out, Marcelo Huertas adding 19 minutes off the bench, finishing with nine points, five assists and four rebounds. Tarik Black, Brown, and Clarkson are featured in our postgame videos below.
