GSW won their 3rd pre-season game by 121-114 thanks to Curry scorching 33 points and 2 assists on 12/24 shooting from the field and a bad night from the 3 point line with only 3 of 14 from downtown, Jordan Poole also stacked up 28 points with a hot night from deep shooting 6 of 13. Finally, the newly added part of bg 3 Russel Westbrook debuts for the Lakers, and so does LeBron James but both had an abysmal night from the floor only shooting 1 of 7 from the floor by Westbrook and LeBron 4/12 and 0% on three on 3 tries, their slack was picked up by Dwight Howard who turned back the clock and dominated the game with 23 points, 12 boards and 1 block on an amazing efficient 8/11 shooting.
Here is the dub-nation enjoying their win against the Lakers.

Both of these met during the newly created format of a play-in tournament, Lakers as the 7th seed against GSW as 8th seed in the west, Lakers came up clutch thanks to LeBron’s long-range three-pointer over Curry. Both the players have always been on top of the NBA since they step foot in the league, both even at an advanced show no signs of slowing down but instead getting better by age.
This will be 2nd game of the NBA 2021 season opener as newly formed Lakers with veteran presence will go against the old and gold splash brother (Curry and Klay) even though Klay return is planned for Christmas Day but the original trio of Draymond, Curry, and Thompson will give us fans to enjoy the beautiful game of basketball.
Obviously, no LeBron game can go without a tweet of Skip Bayless hating on LeBron
In his first half as a Laker, Russell Westbrook announced his presence with 6 turnovers, 1-6 shooting. LeBron: 0-3 from three. Shades of things to come.
