Warriors steamroll Lakers to get closer to No. 1 seed in West

Warriors superstar Kevin Durant had a simple answer for his team's massive first-quarter lead against the Lakers.

Johnathan Williams led the Lakers with 17 points and a career-high 13 rebounds off the bench. They made seven of 12 three-point attempts. Their 12 points were a season low for any quarter. The only thing that is worth spending time thinking on is what we can do better, how do we prepare for the next team, things that have to do with where we are at right now.

Los Angeles outscored Golden State 30-21 in the second when their shooting improved to 32 percent from the field, but still trailed 60-42 at halftime.

Draymond Green, Thompson, Durant, Cousins and Curry dominated the third, outscoring the Lakers by 10 points to take a 94-66 lead into the fourth.

The fourth quarter was nothing more than a nationally televised audition among the Lakers' bench for future jobs with team owner Jeanie Buss leaving early.

If I'm going to pay a premium price, I expect it will help keep Australians employed", one said. The move is part of the USA corporation's "global restructuring program".

Lakers: F Kyle Kuzma (left foot peroneal tendinitis) missed his third straight game.

Uncertainty also continues to swirl around coach Luke Walton, whose position has come under scrutiny after a disappointing campaign. Social media understandably went insane for the assist. The head coach is nearly always the fall guy whenever things go wrong even stuff out of their control like injuries.

Fellow two-way player Alex Caruso provided the night's biggest firework, cleaning up a missed shot and slamming it down (over teammate JaVale McGee's head).

James saw his season end prematurely as Los Angeles elected to shut him down last week with just six games remaining on the regular-season schedule.

With at one point being a serious threat in the highly competitive West, it's only human to wonder what the team could've done had they been at full strength for the majority of the 2018-19 campaign.
