The Lakers are shooting 68% from the field and ran away from the Warriors within the first 5 minutes of the game. The Lakers have already picked up 8 points off 5 Warriors turnovers and a bulk of their points have come off transition buckets — many of the “Showtime” variety.
This looks like it is going to be a rough night for the Warriors as there seems to be about 10 Lakers on the court on defense and on offense. Imagine Space Jam and the Lakers are the “monstars.” Case in point? Lakers have 15 rebounds to the Warriors 6. The second chance point are killing the Warriors. They Lakers just seem to be everywhere.
Dorell Wright is shooting 1-7 from the field and Monta Ellis was 1-5. There’s a lot more game to play, but at this rate, this game might be over before the half.
