Lakers Have Filled the Warrior’s Cup

Anthony Randolph, Lamar OdomFor the Lakers, scoring against Golden State has been about as difficult as it is for Jack Bauer to, uh, neutralize bad guys on “24.”

Try 373 points in three games, a handy 124.3 average that included a 130-113 rout at STAPLES Center on Dec. 28.

L.A. didn’t win quite as easily in Golden State, first emerging with a 114-106 win on Jan. 1 in a tough contest before coming from behind to win 129-121 as Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom all scored more than 20 points on Feb. 18.

The key to beating the Warriors, however, is quite simple: Limit their fastbreak points, and take advantage of their lack of interior size. Assistant coach Brian Shaw broke things down for us further on video, which you can check out by linking below:
