L.A. Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
Absolute domination from the Golden State Warriors in their 109-103 beatdown of the L.A. Lakers.
Sure, the Lakers made this a game late, pulling within single digits with less than two minutes left. But in all honesty, even though L.A. lost by just six points, this one was never really that close.
While the 109 points the Warriors scored were impressive, their pressure on defense was almost more impressive.
Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash did all they could, accounting for 55 of the Lakers’ 103 points, but the Lakers’ lack of defense made their production insignificant.
The most shocking piece of the Lakers’ performance was Dwight Howard’s lack of domination—accounting for just 11 points and 15 rebounds.
Against the Warriors’ interior defense, Howard should have had more looks on offense and more easy shots around the rim.
David Lee, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors, accounting for 70 of the Warriors’ 109 points.
Throw in Jarrett Jack’s 19 points, and you’ll see that the rest of the Warriors’ team scored just 20 points.
The Lakers’ woeful offense wasn’t the only reason for this blowout loss.
As a team they shot just 69.4 percent from the free-throw line. When you consider that they shot 36 free throws, it makes sense why this one wasn’t close throughout.
It was a rough loss for the Lakers, a solid win for the Warriors and a game that made the Western Conference playoff picture even more difficult to call.

Refs must not want to go home. Of course. Who would want to leave East Oakland, after dark?

LAL are on a 7-0 run, capped by Blake's 3; Nash looks tired, having played most of the 2nd half (missed his last 2). 105-96, 2:31 left.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) March 26, 2013
We've got a game, well sort of, with the Lakers down just nine with 2:30 left.
In any other circumstances this wouldn't be considered close, but the Warriors have forgotten how to score and play defense, so it's a game.

The NBA goal in a blow out is typically to cut the margin to 10 with 6 min. left for a chance. LAL are within 14 after Kobe's J.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) March 26, 2013
If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it does it score on the Lakers?— Lakers Nation (@LakersNation) March 26, 2013
The Lakers are still fighting strong, they're just running into a brick wall known as the Warriors' offense.
Lakers 2/9 on FT's at the end of Q3 and haven't made a bucket in Q4. Not the formula for a comeback.— Laker Nation (@LakerNation) March 26, 2013
