Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors: Live Score and Analysis for GSW
Klay Thompson led all scorers with 25 points, including a scorching 5-of-6 from three-point range. The team as a whole would hit 15 shots from behind the arc, with eight of those coming from Draymond Green (14 points, six rebounds) and Kent Bazemore (14 points, five assists) off the bench.
With Stephen Curry struggling to get into a rhythm on offense, shooting just 3-of-12 from the field, Andre Iguodala would step up and take over more of a role as a floor general, constantly finding his open teammates on the perimeter. He would finish with 14 assists and just one turnover.
Golden State now travels to Sacramento this Wednesday to do battle with the Kings at the Sleep Train Arena on October 23rd.
FINAL: Golden State Warriors 115, Los Angeles Lakers 89
This is exactly what Andre Iguodala is going to bring to the Golden State Warriors in 2013-14. He really is a Swiss Army Knife of a player that can make your basketball team better in so many ways.
It's hard not to be excited about your team after a performance like that.
There's going to be games where the Warriors live and die by their shooting, but when it's falling, they're as good as any team in the NBA.

Back Spasms Force Warriors’ Bogut Out: Andrew Bogut got the ball on the left low block, with Pau Gasol on his ... http://t.co/2aEgLOoB4m— HOOPSWORLD (@HOOPSWORLD) October 18, 2013
It looks like Andrew Bogut won't be returning to this game. Better safe than sorry. No need to make his back any worse in a meaningless preseason game.
I have Swaggy P fever. I'm not ashamed to admit it. #Lakers— Ethan Norof (@Mr_Norof) October 18, 2013
NBA Assistant Editor Ethan Norof of Bleacher Report loves him some Nick Young. A couple of highlight-reel dunks in the first half just reenforces that admiration. Some better transition defense from the Warriors might put a halt to that.
The Golden State Warriors may need to make some adjustments in the second half. Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman have a combined 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Los Angeles Lakers. Better defense down low in the post will be of the utmost importance if the GSW hope to win this game.
