Lakers stun Warriors 117-97, end Steph’s 3-point streak
While the Los Angeles Lakers shouted and shoved each other with elation, Luke Walton managed to look unsurprised by the incredible upset unfolding before them. The Los Angeles Lakers were battering the mighty Golden State Warriors. Walton’s championship-tested former team just couldn’t catch up to his young, hungry new squad. Although it’s far too early in the season to truly celebrate anything, Walton thinks the Lakers’ future is fascinating. Lou Williams scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, and the Lakers snapped Stephen Curry’s NBA-record streak of 157 games with a 3-pointer during their 117-97 victory Friday night. Julius Randle had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and D’Angelo Russell added 17 points for the rebuilding Lakers. They built a 21-point lead in the third quarter and hung on to shock the Warriors at Staples Center for the third consecutive season.
