Warriors still trying a comeback

Golden State beat Los Angeles in Game 5 and are still alive in the series; they need to win two more

Home » Warriors still trying a comeback

In the second game of the night, the Los Angeles Lakers also lost the opportunity of closing the series and advancing to the Conference Finals. The Golden State Warriors won the game and are still trying a comeback after falling behind 3-1 in the series. All because last night they beat the Lakers, at home, by 121-106.

The Warriors finally played well again after two bad performances and didn’t lose a single quarter. They won three periods and tied one, the third. And after going to the locker room winning by 70-59 at halftime, they finished the job in the second half and managed to win the game by 15 points.

Stephen Curry played well once again, but of course without a triple-double like in the last game. But Draymond Green stood out in the individual performances as he had a rare double-double, scoring 20 points in the game.

Best Performances

Besides the two mentioned players, Andrew Wiggins also had a great performance for the Warriors. On the Lakers’ side, the best players didn’t have their best performances to avoid the win, but that doesn’t mean they had bad stats. Check out this game’s numbers.
