Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Grading Lakers’ Performance

In case you weren't up at 4:30 a.m. on the West Coast, allow me to fill you in on what happened during the preseason game between the Warriors and Lakers in Beijing, China.

Golden State came away with the victory by a final score of 100 to 95.

Both teams were very sharp offensively in the early going, knocking down jump shots, scoring in transition and putting on a show for the adoring fans in China.

The Lakers controlled most of the game despite allowing David Lee to go off for 31 points and six rebounds.

But things changed in the fourth quarter when the Lakers went to their bench and Warriors head coach Mark Jackson kept his starters in. 

Despite taking the loss, several Lakers played very well and earned passing grades.
