NBA: Golden State Warriors vs. L.A. Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers will have to face the Golden State Warriors today. The team was defeated by the Phoenix Suns (118-103) in their previous scrimmage Monday and are hopeful for a comeback.
Phil Jackson, the Lakers head coach, is also “hopeful” that the injured Ron Artest will rejoin the squad in time for the game against the Warriors. Artest had a concussion and injured his left elbow after he fell down from the stairs at his home on Christmas day.
The match starts at 10:30 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Kobe Bryant scored 44 points and Pau Gasol added 27 as the Lakers survived Golden State’s high percentage shooting for a 124-118 win over the Warriors.
