Warriors knock off Lakers in second straight preseason game
The Golden State Warriors just beat the Los Angeles Lakers for the second straight preseason game, which is extremely important for reasons I will tell you at the end of this article.
There’s some key memories from this nice victory that I think will linger into the start of the season. But don’t take my word for it, seeing is believing. I’ve attached some highlights for you along with some prescient quotes from last night’s game thread in the greatest community of GSW basketball commenters in the world… the good folks at DNHQ!
Moses Moody is officially becoming a problem
“Is it me, or does Moody have a quicker first step this year? I don't really remember him beating anybody off the dribble.” — TwoRingTest
Rookie Brandin Podziemski gives a glimpse of his true powers
I'm really liking Podz's all around game, assists, rebounds, defense, and it looks like he was a 40%+ 3pt shooter in college. — Mayela Mingi
Podz is kind of a f*** revelation to me. He's not scoring, but the playmaking and defense are Ty+++ and he's only in his first season.
I didn't think he'd be very good, TBH. —TwoRingTest
Nice to see my hut on Podziemski Cay rising in value. — Loonatic
Chris Paul had five turnovers?!
CP has been a little careless with the passing. Warriors already rubbing off on him? —Abbadon
Kuminga leads Warriors with 26 points and some nasty dunks
JK with 27 minutes, 26 points, 9/12 FG, 3/5 3Pt, 5/7 FT, and +11 — Being
He was the star of the game. — Basketbum
I feel like part of the Sith Council who's been watching and waiting and we can finally unleash the young Darth Kuminga on the Rebels...— Chasing Rings
Trayce Jackson-Davis comes up clutch
TJD with the rebound, the go-ahead bucket, and what eventually became the key defensive stop. — TheSarunas
Ahhh nothing like waking up on a beautiful Saturday after a Warriors win. Oh wait, I was supposed to tell you how important it is to beat the Lakers two times in the preseason.
Did you know every time the Warriors do that, they win a championship?
