The Los Angeles Lakers appear to be in control in Game 3, and the defending champions Golden State Warriors will need to bench more in order to even the series and send them back into the Bay Area in a big way. The Lakers lead 2-1 with Game 4 on Monday night.
Jonathan Cuminga was the only Warriors player off the bench to score 2 goals (10 points) in Game 3 on Saturday, and a lot of that was in garbage time when the game was spinning out of control. Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson combined to score 54 of the Warriors’ 97 points. Meanwhile, the Lakers had another stellar performance from Anthony Davis (25 points, 13 rebounds, 4 blocks) in game three. Davis has built up a huge lead in single-digit games, so Game 4 on Monday could be another night for the Lakers’ big guy. .
