Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr made pregame adjustments, bringing JaMychal Green into the starting lineup in place of an ill Kevon Looney. Looney still saw some time off the bench in game two on Thursday. Klay Thompson was on fire for the Warriors against the Los Angeles Lakers, who are led by LeBron James. Stephen Curry makes way for Thompson, playing the breakout point guard.
After Anthony Davis took the lead in Game 1 to drop 30 points and grab 23 rebounds as Los Angeles won 117-112 and take a 1-0 series lead, his presence wasn’t felt in Game 2. Meanwhile, Draymond Green’s “power” was felt in him.
