Last Monday, the Lakers defeated the Warriors at Staples Center. LeBron James and Anthony Davis did not play and watched from the bench to the victory of their teammates. That night, rebelote, and new victory of the Lakers vis-a-vis their neighbors of San Francisco.
This time, the 2 stars were well dressed, LeBron gratifying us even a pass of madnessand it was Stephen Curry who was left to rest. The King was allowed 24 minutes, enough to score 18 points and distribute 11 assists. His friend played him 28 minutes for 8 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists.
After the match, Anthony Davis was very appreciative and appreciative of the number 23 gaming intelligence. The Brow also took the opportunity to gently tease his old franchise:
It makes everyone better. It attracts a lot of attention from the defenders. Because of this, he offers us many open shoots. The more attention it gets, the more shots will be opened, and we have enough shooters who are able to take advantage of it.
I was laughing with him at halftime, I told him that this is the first time since a lease that I may have only 5 points and still lead 30.
Indeed, the Lakers were particularly adroit behind the three-point line last night. They scored 13 shots winning 68.4% success. When a player of LeBron caliber permanently attracts 2 or even 3 defenders on him, it makes life easier for shooters.

With 126 points scored, Frank Vogel's men showed how dangerous they could be on this side of the pitch. When the outside shots come in on a regular basis, as was the case tonight, it will be difficult to defend this team.
The most interesting thing for them, at least for yesterday's game, is that 5 different players scored at least 2 three-pointers. In a league based on extreme outdoor shooting, it's a good thing.
The Lakers have one last pre-season game to play Friday night against … Warriors, again, in their brand-new Chase Center. A final test for Davis teammates, before the real start of their season on October 22 at the Staples Center, for a huge shock of entry against their neighbors, the Clippers of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
PG will be absent, but we will have the presence of LeBron, AD and Kawhi Leonard on the same floor, on the first night of the regular season. Hard to ask better.
The Lakers look to the point. The deal between LeBron and AD is at a maximum. We only ask to see it in 5 days, for the opening of the season. One stamps impatience.
