Lakers Stun Warriors
The Golden State Warriors lost 112-95 to the Los Angeles Lakers yesterday for one of the biggest upsets in NBA history.
The young Lakers squad led by Jordan Clarkson's 25 points and rookie D'Angelo Russell who added 21, caught the Warriors on one of their worst shooting days they've ever had. The Warriors shot 13% from beyond the arc, their worst shooting percentage from three over the past two seasons. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were a combined 1-for-18 from deep.
"We got what we deserved," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after the loss. "When the ball doesn't go in, you have to win with energy and defense and toughness, and we didn't have any of that."
Perhaps the best shooting team in NBA history made history in the worst way. The Warriors registered the fourth-worst single-game 3-point effort since the arc's inception in 1979-80.
Golden State now falls to 55-6, while the Lakers improve to 13-51.
The question, now, is will the Warriors even reach the Bulls single-season win record of 72 games?
