Short-handed Warriors blow past the Lakers

Isaiah Thomas and Julius Randle caught some headlines for a mid-game argument, but perhaps surprising to some, Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton thought highly of the verbal spat.

Randle also said it was no big deal, saying they were just trying to get the best out of each other. There's nothing bad against the Los Angeles Lakers. Los Angeles hasn't won in Oakland since an OT victory December 22, 2012.

Thomas is averaging 16.5 points per game with the Lakers, and his shooting percentages are up across the board.

Nick Young dropped 18 points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes, starting against his former team.

The point guard finshed with 20 points and seven assists on the night, while Randle continued his monstrous form, finishing with 22 points and 10 rebounds, his 20th double-double of the season.

Wilson Chandler had 26 points and 10 rebounds for Denver, which beat Los Angeles 125-116 on Friday night.

Kuzma sprained his right ankle in the final seconds of the third quarter and left the game to get it re-taped.

Ball's follow shot at the halftime buzzer after an off-balance missed 3 by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope sent the game into intermission tied at 55.

Tonight, Kevin Durant led the way for Golden State. "I told them afterward, I love it".

Then a amusing thing happened on the way to the final course: They respectfully disagreed, and decided to make the best of an imperfect situation.

Omri Casspi scored 15 points off the bench and Shaun Livingston 13 as the Warriors earned a seventh straight victory against the Lakers - Golden State's longest unbeaten run in the series - and 11th in a row in the series at Oracle Arena. But the injury is not considered serious as Durant still played and subsequently participated in Thursday's practice without restrictions. The Warriors were without Curry and Green when they beat the Lakers 116-114 in overtime on the road December 18, and again had to go without Curry in their 113-106 home victory four days later. Rookie Chris Boucher was up from the G League Warriors and made his National Basketball Association debut with 1:19 left.
