Monday, January 21 finds the Golden State Warriors facing the. L.A. Lakers as they meet for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Friday, the Warriors defeated the Clippers. The Lakers last played Saturday in a thrilling game requiring overtime that the Rockets eventually won.
Last season, the Warriors swept the Lakers but in their first meeting this year the Lakers won. The Lakers hold the all-time record having bested the Warriors 252 of their 417 matches.
Golden State Warriors
DeMarcus Cousins made his long awaited return to the court on Friday in the win over the Clippers. Although he looked winded at points he also showed glimpses of how his presence will improve the Warriors.
In just 15 minutes he scored 14 points on 5 of 11 from the field. He dunked, hit from three of four from the perimeter, dished three assists, grabbed six rebounds and had a block. And, as typical for Boogie fouled out.
All in all, it was stellar showing for Cousins in his return to the court. Cousins joined Stephen Curry (28), Kevin Durant (24), Klay Thompson (12) in double-digit scoring and showcased just how lethal this offense will be once he transitions into the system and gets his wind back.
For the first time, all season the Warriors have just one player out injured – Damian Jones who’ll miss the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
The last time these teams met was Christmas Day when LeBron James pulled his groin. Since James went down the Lakers have recorded a 5-8 record.
In the loss to the Rockets, Kyle Kuzma led the way with 32 points while Brandon Ingram put up 21 and showcased real presence in the closing stages of the game.
Three other Lakers scored in double-digits Ivica Zubac (17), Lance Stephenson (16) and JaVale McGee (12) were the other double-digit contributors.
Lonzo Ball injured his ankle versus the Rockets and was diagnosed with a Grade 3 sprain which will keep him off the court between a month and up to six weeks.
Rajon Rondo (finger) is expected to return in early February.
LeBron James has missed 13 games with his strained left groin and while he won’t play Monday he has been cleared to work out with the team.
