Preseason Game 1: Anaheim Lakers vs Golden State Warriors
It's official, Lakers preseason starts tonight in Anaheim. In an arena where ducks dwell, Honda Center welcomes the NBA champs (saying that never gets old) for their annual preseason visit. This is an opportunity for the fans to witness Artest's first game as a Laker. We will see how he meshes with his teammates and visa-versa. Since the early Radman trade last season and Ariza moving to Houston post season, the expectation for Artest is HEAVY. Can he defend better than Ariza? Or score better than Radmanovic? We will see if the hype surrounding his arrival is deserving.
On the flip side, this game will also be an early preview of how the Warriors can play big with such a small squad.
Here are the final numbers for the game. (click to enlarge)
