Lakers’ win streak halted as Stephen Curry, Warriors shine

LeBron James and the Lakers fell to Stephen Curry and the Warriors in the first matchup of the season.

The Lakers had been playing EXCELLENT basketball up until this matchup with the Warriors. They were on a five-game winning streak and looked to be clicking on all cylinders and for three-quarters of this game, the Lakers looked to be heading to their sixth straight victory. However, the Warriors had different plans.

Stephen Curry scored 26 total points and was the catalyst for a major 14 point comeback by the Warriors—Golden State ended up winning the game 115-113 with LeBron James missing a go-ahead three-pointer at the end of regulation that would have given the Lakers a one-point victory. According to Stats LLC, this was the first time in 284 games that a LeBron James-led team has lost a game heading into the fourth quarter leading by double digits.

Games like this happen. The Lakers won’t hang their heads. It is a long season ahead and they will move on to the next game.
