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

The Los Angeles Lakers fell for the second time this week to the Golden State Warriors in China.

LA dropped to 2-4 in the preseason with a 115-89 loss to Golden State in Shanghai. 

Head coach Mike D'Antoni did some experimenting early but wound up resting his starters late. The Warriors again used that opportunity to pull away. 

Pau Gasol posted 16 points, seven rebounds and four assists, and he was the only double-digit scorer for the Lakers. Nick Young and Jordan Farmar contributed nine points each. Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 25 points.

Everyone looked healthy, and there were no major setbacks in the Lakers' sixth preseason game. They return to America and the Staples Center on Oct. 22.
