Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Highlights

The Los Angeles Lakers will meet the Golden State Warriors for a preseason tilt that promises to test the team’s young core. The Warriors are the reigning NBA champions, and Stephen Curry and company will be looking to fine-tune things before heading into the regular season. The Lakers will be without both Kobe Bryant (calf contusion) and Lou Williams (sore groin), which means that D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, and Nick Young will have to step up and take on some of the scoring load. The Warriors will be without Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut, and Harrison Barnes. With a preseason record that sits at a paltry 1-4, the Lakers are hoping to pick up a win, but will have their work cut out for them.

Check out the highlights below:

GO LAKERS!

  • GO LAKERS!

    WE WHOOPED THE WARRIORS GOOD!

    5th SEED HERE WE COME!

    Too bad they called the game.

  • Russel, Clarkson, Randle showing great hustle and toughness for the gate !! Niiiiice!

    Randle is rebounding and rim protecting.
    Russel is getting steals and making behind the back lay-ups.
    Clarkson made 2 great post plays using his body + buzzer beating 3 pointer.

      1. Exactly. At some point (even when Kobe was on the floor) this has became Randles team. If he keeps up this level of play the Lakers will be much better than people think

      1. Yes he is doing an awesome job. He his very impressive in this game. What i love the most is that he doesn’t back down. He enjoys body contact and he is going hard against Green.

        1. Hes owning Green!

          Green can’t guard Randle!

          2 fouls by Green on Randle and only 1st quarter!

  • I do like RUSSEL’s hair do. ” A LA ALLEN IVERSON ” . That should be, ” i mean business now doo “.

  • Great 1st quarter. Ends tied at 31 !!!

    Russell almost makes a last minute 3 point shot but off balance and didn’t go in.

  • These young Lakers are taking up on Kobe’s attitude, it really is nice to see they keep the Laker fighting spirit going. Randle with the Can’t guard me on Green, Kobe must be smiling right now.

    1. BALL movement , Team playing together, finding the open man- they look great and lots of D. GOOD GAME LAKERS.

      1. Huertas is going to help the 2nd unit a lot and keep the ball moving to get Young and Lou will open shots. Was very impressed by him

    1. Hunger, passion, effort…they’re young and know what the Lakers jersey stands for. This is the reason why you don’t trade picks to make trade deals work

    1. He has me a little puzzled, i pegged him for second worst on the team but he has been playing better as of late.

      1. So far I think Sacre, A brown, and Frazier is on the chopping block. I wanna see more from holmes and J brown (not as a point guard)

          1. True. We need to see what Holmes offer. Also Upshaw is showing flash. He seem to be learning fast, but hope he wont overdo it, But im still scratching my head who will be our reserve forward. That’s why Holmes is the deciding factor this coming week. It’s either him, MWP, or A brown. And two of those has to be cut.. We need defense like how we saw today in a consistent basis and we can’t rely on Young and Kobe for 82 games. So a strong reserve is key.

          2. Our backup PF is Brandon Bass. He injured his knee but they said it was nothing serious.

          3. J Brown is on the Chopping block…A Brown is starting right now because he plays Defense and have a nice stroke from outside…Also younger.

          4. A brown is starting because Scott wants to give him a chance. He wants to see him and what he can bring.

            His energy brings good wing help and extra hands on the boards, but I haven’t seen anything promising YET. Nothing that makes me think he’s a keeper.

            He might stay simply because we’re low on legit SFs.

      1. I didn’t forget Lou, I stated the 5 players that came in of the bench during this game.

        I believe Jabari will make the team.

          1. This year is more about development. Can’t get too caught up in trying to make the playoffs. This season is really about next summer IMO. We will more cap room than any other team (projected $65 million) and we need our young guys to develop quickly and show that we have a strong nucleus to build around. If Randle and Clarkson continue their level of play, and Russell is a 15/8/5 pg by March we will have a legitimate chance at landing Durant. I’d rather sacrifice 10-15 wins this year for a parade in the next three years

  • Kelly should be paired with either Black or Upshaw. He defends like Dirk, he needs an agile rim protector behind him something Sacre definitely not.

    1. Good take, i would add he also needs to be with a high volume rebounder because Kelly near the three point line on offense and mid range on defense. He is a complimentary rebounder. I would like to see UPSHAW next to him and see how that goes.

  • Like I always preach, JR IS A BEAST, Green stands no chance, Kelly Stays… Our guards will be the best in few years

  • I would like to see some Upshaw and Nance jr. We already know how bad Sacre plays, hasnt shown improvement in 3 years, not gonna be better after a few preseason games.

    1. Lol… there’s a reason why they signed the guy to a guaranteed contract. He finally was able to play. Brown at PG is just terrible.

      1. That was my poin all last year, that you can’t rely on him, he is just too inconsistent, hopefully he is a better player this year.

    1. I remember someone called him SACRAP here lol

      Seriously though, he’s got luck. So many yrs in the league when we know he doesn’t belong

  • Huertas is
    – pushing the ball well
    – quick skinny defender , staying with Curry a la Steve Blake
    – making some sweet passes.

  • Scott doing lineup change like it’s a football game. This is the 6th preseason game, he should have an idea by now who gets cut and who stays. Still seems like it’s an audition game.

  • a second unit of huertas, lou, swaggy, kelly or bass and black or upshaw… that would be really solid.

    1. I mentioned Steve Blake as a comparison before on this thread, so i agree , but with much better court vision, instint and passing.

      1. Huertas better than nash. You guys comparing to Blake…give him more credit.

        No disrespect to Blake.

  • i appreciate kelly’s hustle lately but i totally see him getting swatted(big time) sometime this season on one of those drives

  • Huertas is good, makes the team look good. Even Jabari’s displaying agressiveness and hustle much like clarkson.

    1. Thats part of Jabari’s game he

      – great 3 point shooter
      – is decent at making steals
      – can dunk and likes to dunk
      – likes to attack the basket and can make to shot of contact
      – is an excellent free throw shooter.

  • Huertas looks good as back-up point guard.

    Kelly TRYING HARD again to be a slasher, you are too big and too slow to be a slasher. Just shoot the ball. You’re a shooter not a slasher.

  • Love how stupid people are on Twitter. Some are actually comparing an aged-vet in Huertas to a 19 yr old rookie in Russell. The “injury” scared me, but thankfully it was nothing. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the starters sit out the rest of the game ither. Looks like Byron is considering it which I’d be totally cool with it.

    1. I would be totally cool with that. I want to see the end of the bench play to see who deserves to stay on the team.

      End of the bench line- up .

      PG – Jabari Brown
      SG – Frazier
      SF- MWP / Holmes
      PF – Nance / Black
      C- Upshaw

    1. In all seriousness, the only problem I had with Lin was his fans. Truth is he was a class act and semi-talented player. Dude will do great in CHA, because it’s exactly what he needs… a team with no grand expectations. He couldn’t handle these lights IMO.

      1. Class act maybe but mediocre player at best. Huertas has done more than Lin already. Talk about a true PG.

  • Russell is got an even better sparing passing partner in Huertas. He really is set up to get an opportunity to grow. Beautiful pick up. Wont defend much but hey if you can give good minutes and help with Russells curve you’d have done better than expected.

  • If Huertas comes off the bench with Williams, that’s a good offensive lineup but defensively they have to adjust big time.

    C – Hibbert/Black/Upshaw/*Sacre
    PF – Randle/Bass/Kelly/Nance Jr.
    SF – Young/A. Brown/*Metta/*Holmes
    SG – Kobe/Williams/*J. Brown/*Frazier
    PG – Russell/Clarkson/Williams/Huertas

    *CUTS
    Sacre – no need to explain
    Holmes – Kelly showing big improvements
    J. Brown – brings the same element as Williams
    Frazier – J. Brown plays better
    Metta – too bad we need to develop our draft picks(A. Brown & Nance Jr.)

  • I hope Byron Scott try Huertas, Lou, Young, Bass, Upshaw/Black on second half. Kelly and Sacre are both slow and can’t jump.

  • YES , Byron is going to go down to the 3rd string guys, Nice !!

    Clarkson, Frazier, MWP, Nance, Upshaw

        1. I really like the way he plays, we have a lot of offensive weapons , Nance is going to be a defensive specialist..

          Hustling, Rebounding, Stealing, Shot Blocking

  • Playing the end of the bench severs 2 purposes.
    1) So we can all see what these players can offer, who should make the team.
    2) Keeps a lot of key players away from that sippery floor and injury free.

      Realistically, he can be like josh mcroberts. Which btw, he’s playing great in Miami. We should have never let him go. He’s an amazing high post passer

  • So is huertas looking nice? Also how does Dangelo look?
    Are the Warriors playing like the warriors? Bc these stats look too nice

    1. Huertas looking like the NEW Laker PG – showed in 12 minutes what we have been needing – and something D’angelo FAILED to show in summer league and four pre season games – BUT I HAVE HIGH, HIGH hopes for D’Angelo in about 4-7 years, then hopefully, I will see anything that resembles the 12 minutes Huertas put up Bruh.

  • I’m not even mad, at least we ended it on a high note. This was all we had to see. One thing is for sure: Sacre and Holmes are NOT making the team. Not sure about Jabari just yet.

    1. Jabari is useful in situations like tonight…if lou or swag are out, he can step in and minimize the loss

      1. 2 things I want to see from Jabari: consistency and a lil’ bit of cheerfulness when he’s on the court.

        1. Consistency I can agree on. However, he gets into trouble when he tries to do too much. When he picks his spots he’s lethal.

          I understand your second point. Just know that if he’s smiling, people would hate (look at young). He does show support from the bench. He cheers and reacts to dunks…so he must be happy.

          He’s just a serious guy…he doesn’t even move his lips when speaking…That’s how serious he is

          Anyways, he’s a mix of rookie/sophomore…he has potential to be a Ben gordon type of player. Streaky undersized scorer. He should be kept as a reserve

  • Upshaw with the Up fake & slam. Upshaw played less mins than Sacre but showed up on offense & defense. If he gets cut and Sacre is on the team, someone in the FO must be fired.

  • A. Brown moving well defensively, even shadowing Barbosa who is a known speedster. Makes it tough for Metta to be on the team.

          1. To be honest in another post about this game i sort of put kobe down for being a ball stopper to some degree but im a die hard Lakers fan and Kobe fan but their is a slight difference of play and pace obviously when he’s out based on several analytical factors but to be fair kobe was off last game/Lamar so “hoopfully” kobe watched cuz he damn sure heard about this game and he takes care of business next time out!

          2. the stats that try and say the lakers are better with out kobe are crap.

            we have seen the last few seasons ith out kobe how much worse the lakers are

  • Observations

    1) Kelly Frazier Sacre and Holmes should be the cuts
    2) nance can play a bit
    3) huertas needs to play every second swaggy is on the floor
    4) Randle is a beast
    5) upshaw just earned his spot on the squad

    Fun game to watch, seeing Randle barking that draymond green couldn’t guard him was crazy…dudes got his swagger back

  • I was really impressed by Marcelo Huertas.I didn’t his game at all, but he gets guys involved, he speaks to his teamates, hi can make plays for his teamates and makes his teamates look better.

  • Surely we just witnessed……………….the last 12 minutes Robert Sacre will ever play for the Lakers. I’m feeling kind of nostalgic about those highlights from Sacre’s Lakers career, like….and like….also remember that time he….and when he……

    1. They are probably still waiting for the 3rd quarter to finish, the way some of them write I wonder if they actually watch the games.

  • We definitely have the players to do much better this season. May be not playoff but at least in contention for the 8th spot. NO MORE excuses for Byron Scott. Another nightmare season, you MUST GO Sir!

  • Huertas – THATS WHAT A NBA point Guard is !!! Come on Byron, no MORE D’Angelo with starting role, and those high minutes for the Rookie that hopefully be ready in about 4-7 years after developing!! Lakers seen D’Angelo in Summer league, four preseason games and THEN enter Laker True Point Guard Huertas era. (and that was only 12 minutes of True point guard READINESS) PLEASE, please Byron limit the rook DRussell. All DR Fans and supporters should go to El Sequendo Defenders and watch all the minutes DR needs to develop. Huertas needs all, ALL the time on the NBA court for LA WINS !!!

  • Ryan Kelly can’t finish on a drive to save his life. He’s so uncoordinated that whenever he makes a move to the hoop he ends up throwing up some wild garbage. He doesn’t know how to take a couple dribbles and pull up either. Straight uncoordinated. Nothing but a 6’11” spot up shooter (and not all that good at that) that can’t do anything else. Get rid of him QUICK.

  • 13 PLAYERS ACTIVE ROSTER ( correct me if i’m wrong but i know you can now use 13 players in a game since the recent lockout )

    Starters
    C- Hibbert
    PF- Randle (my earlier choice was Bass but Randle showed great improvement)
    SF-Kobe
    SG- Clarkson
    PG- Russell (need to set up starters & to gain confidence as a starter playing against top PG’s)

    Bench
    C- Upshaw ( rim protection, taller than Black & has a decent jumper )
    PF- Bass ( better defender than Kelly )
    SF- Young
    SG- Williams
    PG- Huertas

    11th – Black (back-up in case of foul trouble)
    12th – Kelly (back-up in case small ball lineup)
    13th – Metta/A. Brown (back-up in case Kobe doesn’t play)

    Reserves
    14th – Metta/A. Brown
    15th – Nane Jr.

      1. It would have been the perfect time. Whistles simultaneously blowing, refs waving their arms calling it a game

  • Huertas played as expected…yet, his vision is on another level. Imagine the possibilities once he develops chemistry with the guys, AND plays with someone not named sacre

  • I hope Huertas remain healthy and continue his great play. Maybe he is the basketball God’s gift to the Lakers since the team was robbed to see Nash perform at a high level.

  • The name has changed and so has the game. Randle continues to be the most impressive player on the floor. Seriously, 14 points in 12 minutes? I’m loving the confidence, and he’s starting to get a little more confident with his jump shot. Keep it up young fella and you’ll have a good chance at playing alongside Durant next year.

    Huertas is definitely making the team, and if last night is any indication, he’s going to make the second unit very potent offensively.

    Russell still has a long ways to go but continues to flash potential. Most of all, he’s got to nail those open 3 pointers. It’s just going to create more space for him to show off his passing skills.

    Overall it was an impressive performance by the team and I’m glad they called it early. The last thing we need is another injury

  • After watching the game…. I’m very excited about Randle’s future. He really took it to Draymond in last night’s game. If he can get that midrange jumper going, he’s going to be a beast. Clarkson played great but I’d like to see him be more aggressive. Hopefully tomorrow Lou and Bass can play.

  • Also..Sacre needs to be cut today. Huertas is amazing. He’s going to keep Swaggy and Lou from going iso for most of the game. Upshaw has potential but we all knew that. Brown is tolerable at sg but has tunnel vision and plays at one speed. Kelly has improved since last season, he makes the roster this season.

    1. Kelly, Upshaw, Black and Huertas are locks to make the team I feel. Which means Jabari Brown is probably out. We just have too many guys that do what he does. I do like Jabari though, I hope he lands on another team!

      1. My comment was deleted. I agree with everything you said. Metta, Sacre, Frazier, Holmes, and Brown will be cut soon.

  • Final Roster will be:

    Russell
    Clarkson
    Huertas
    Lou
    Kobe
    Young
    Brown
    Nance
    Kelly
    Julius
    Bass
    Upshaw
    Roy
    Black

    That leaves one spot for either Sacre, Metta, Jabari or left open for Flexibility. I would probably go ahead and sign Metta. It is the one position we are pretty thin at.

      1. Lakers already got a good look at Black last season. That was his rehearsal. I suppose they could drop him in favor of Sacre since it will cost the team to cut Sacre, but it does seem like a no brainer to take Black over Sacre for many reasons.

          1. Bass’s position is already secured. Black will be a third string development guy. He is cheap, he is showing promise. I do want Metta on the team in the 15th spot. Obviously Metta has not future with the Lakers, where Black does, but I do like Metta mentoring Randle and Black.

          2. I think he will definitely play some center this season, but you are right he nor Black are centers. They are power forwards. But in todays NBA it is the same difference.

      1. Metta seems to be great for Randle, main reason I want him. At this stage Randle’s development trumps all haha

        1. Really tho.. We have enough scorers to not need brown and I think we’ll need mettas vet. Defense at times so we have to go with metta. Jabari brings 3s and slashing. Holmes is a good project as long as he defends and hits jumpers but metta is good for this year bc you no what you got..Id drop Kelly for Holmes at this point (as long as nance is hitting his threes)

        2. If I was Mitch I’ll take Holmes and develop him. Sign Metta as a development coach so he can stay with the team but who knows

  • Wow, time for new Lakes team: Starting G.O.A.T. Kobe; Huertas BEST pg; Randal, Upshaw and Hibbert !!! What a true NBA pg performance, good effort on “ice ring”

  • If I am mitch the first thing I did this morning was call the GM of the Warriors and make a trade offer

    Nance, Upshaw, Kelly and a protected 1st rounder way in the future for Harrison Barnes

    Both nance and Upshaw had the best moments of their brief careers last night and Kelly looked decent. Warriors saw it all first hand and I don’t think they wanna pay Barnes.
