Game Thread: Otto Porter starts in prime time showdown in LA
No Gary Payton tonight as Warriors take on LeBron
The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers are set for a primetime battle on ABC tonight. Both teams are wobbly right now, but someone’s coming out of these 48 minutes with a brand new win to call their own.
Gary Payton II is off tonight for some injury recuperation, opening up a starting spot and some room in coach Steve Kerr’s rotation. Opens up for, perhaps, one Jordan Poole?
No. Looks like the answer is one of the Warriors better rebounders and shot makers, Otto Porter jr.
WHO: Golden State Warriors (43-20) at Los Angeles Lakers (27-35)
