Golden State Warriors vs. L.A. Lakers: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights

Grant Hughes@@gt_hughesNational NBA Featured ColumnistNovember 10, 2012

After a disjointed start to their season, the Los Angeles Lakers righted the ship against the Golden State Warriors in Los Angeles. And they did it mere hours after firing head coach Mike Brown.

The Lakers blew the Warriors out 101-77 amid constant speculation that they were hot on the trail of Phil Jackson to fill their new coaching vacancy.

L.A. held the jumper-happy Warriors to 34 percent shooting by keeping the Dubs out of the paint all night long. Plus, the bench finally got involved. The Laker reserves had their best collective effort, led by Jordan Hill's 14 points on 5-of-5 shooting.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 27 points while Stephen Curry had 18, tops on the Warriors.

The Warriors' abysmal performance makes it a little tough to gauge the Lakers in the post-Mike Brown era, but there's no question their defense and bench looked vastly improved.

Going forward, the real story in L.A. will be about the coaching search and renewed title hopes. But on the court, the Lakers showed real signs of coming alive.

Final Score: Lakers 101, Warriors 77
