LeBron James and the LA Lakers thrashed the Golden State Warriors 117-91 on Sunday. The Lakers, who lost to the Warriors 115-113 on January 18, quickly ran up the score after falling behind 1-0 in the opening stages of the game. The LA Lakers were down for only 12 seconds and never looked back. It was clear that they had revenge on their minds as they placed their foot on the gas pedal and never let up until the final buzzer sounded. LeBron James was on fire for the LA Lakers in the first half, shooting 5 of 7 from the field, including 3-of-4 from three-point territory. One of those threes came as the buzzer sounded to end the second quarter, giving him 15 points heading into the third. In the second half, James only had four points as coach Frank Vogel took him out early because the LA Lakers were up by 29 points at that stage in the third quarter.
When the four-time MVP checked out of the game with four minutes left on the clock, he had already amassed 19 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks.
The Golden State Warriors’ MVP had an off night against the LA Lakers. Stephen Curry shot 5 of 13 from the field and 2 of 7 from three for 16 points. There are times when this kind of effort from Curry is enough for the Golden State Warriors to win. Unfortunately, this wasn’t one of those nights as the Warriors were just atrocious from the field. Curry added four rebounds and seven assists with three turnovers in 26 minutes of action. He did not play in the fourth quarter as the score was already deemed beyond reach by Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.
