What we learned in Lakers win over Warriors

12 October 2018

LeBron James needed only one half - or 17 minutes, 37 seconds to be exact - to show to Lakers fans what he could give to a proud but recently moribund franchise searching to be relevant again. That will continue to get better, especially as we continue to get better at defense. "You've got to want to play at that pace".

James and Ball were in the starting lineup of a game together for the first time, set to team up when the Lakers and the Golden State Warriors squared off in Las Vegas to highlight Wednesday's preseason slate.

James scored 15 points, took 10 rebounds and came up with five assists in a 123-113 victory and Ball revelled in lining up alongside the global icon, who set him up for a dunk. With nearly a week before the season opener against the Portland Trail Blazers on the road, the Lakers will continue to focus on defense if they want to be one of the fastest-paced teams. "Preseason game versus finals game, it's exactly the same", James said, apparently not seriously, as noted by Tania Ganguli in an article posted on the LA Times website. It feels like the pressure is off of him right now. He's going to go out in a place he's comfortable and where he's comfortable with himself.
