Lak­ers stun War­riors 117-97, end Steph’s 3-point streak

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

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.
