Lakers face Warriors without 3 injured startersBy Kelly Sanders Nov 30, 2016
Curry made a game high seven 3-pointers after missing all ten attempts in his first game against the Lakers earlier this season. That puts Russell's earliest possible return date as December 9 against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center.
But it didn't last. He rose and, finally, nailed a left corner 3. The Lakers lost their first of the two games between the Warriors this Wednesday and they will face again on November 26. Golden State is 7-0 in those games.
The Lakers entered the night at a disadvantage. Randle is considered questionable to play in this rematch, as is Nick Young (sprained foot), which means Los Angeles could be without three starters. Without the trio, the Lakers struggled to create any consistent string of good looks.
As the Lakers anxiously wait for two key pieces of their young core to heal, they still cleared up some space in their trainer's room. Draymond Green was helpful with his 11 assists in making Golden State Warrior its ninth victory in the National Basketball Association games.
"That they aren't even good".
"They shot 35 percent from the field", Durant said.
Zaza Pachulia was the surprise contributor in this category on Friday night.
Randle had perhaps his worst game of the season on Tuesday. He had three blocks against the Lakers.
"We get down by 14 points, and we get two quick scores and cut it to 10 and all of a sudden he goes insane and gives us a chance to win the game", Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan said.

The annual clash between the rivals means even more this year as the victor is likely to end up in the College Football Playoffs . Ohio State will host MI on Saturday in what may be one of the most competitive encounters between the two in the last 15 seasons.
If the Warriors bring their A game to L.A. Team B, it should make for a third straight day of feasting of one sort or another. His nERD of 5.5 is tied for best in the National Basketball Association now. They let the Warriors shoot 52 percent from the field, and committed 18 turnovers.
"They tell me they think this is going to help get him to get him back out there, then I'm going with the belief that in two weeks he'll be ready to play again", Walton said.
"We were terrible", Kerr said. The people who bought tickets should get their money back honestly. "I was just trying to figure everybody out in that starting group and just play", said an Orange County Register article.
Here is Green talking about the injury and freak play.
"I was more aggressive, got better on the defensive end", Ingram said. "But he's a coach". That's what I'm looking at.
Friday's game will come at Staples Center, where the first meeting between the teams took place. But on Wednesday night, after riding an eight-game winning streak since that shameful defeat, the Golden State Warriors made great guns from a long distance and shot their way to a ninth consecutive victory. Steph had 23 points, and Klay contributed 18 points. Curry missed a breakaway dunk in the second quarter, drawing laughter throughout the arena. He tried to complete Saturday's practice, but was held out for the second half.
Green suffered a left ankle contusion late in the third and would not finish the game.
Both writhed in pain. The team ruled out a concussion. "But that was to be expected. As of right now, I plan on (playing)". "But we'll see how it feels".
