Video Preview: Lakers – Warriors

After an impressive three-game winning streak heading into the All-Star break despite the absence of Kobe Bryant (left ankle), the Lakers found out Tuesday morning that they’d likely be without Bryant for at least their first game out of the break.

That information had yet to come in when we talked to assistant coach Brian Shaw about the matchup (above), detailing why Golden State can still be dangerous despite injuries of their own (most notably Monta Ellis), looking at rookie Stephen Curry and explaining what LA’s coaches would like to see at both ends of the court.
