LA Lakers take Game 1 in thriller vs. the Golden State Warriors 117-112 behind Anthony Davis’ 30 points helps Purple and Gold hold off ferocious late fightback

Anthony Davis manhandled the Golden State Warriors with his 30 points enough to give the LA Lakers a 117-112 Game 1 win. 

A 14-0 Warriors run naturally spearheaded by Stephen Curry almost brought the Warriors a magical comeback win but D’Angelo Russell and LeBron James made the final two shots of the game to take Game 1 for the Purple and Gold.

Incredibly, the Tuesday night classic was tied at 112 with 1:25 remaining in the ball game before Russell’s jumper and a James free throw. Golden State couldn’t connect on its final three shots as the Lakers held on. 

Before Draymond Green’s irrelevant game-ending air ball, Jordan Poole had two chances — including a missed game-tying three-pointer from 28 feet with nine seconds remaining. His long-range attempt was ridiculed on social media, partly given the shooting prowess surrounding him. 

Davis’ astonishing 30-point, 23 rebound, five-assist night was almost overshadowed due to the late Curry-led charge, but ultimately received its rightful moment in the spotlight as LA put down the first marker.

The Warriors had three players who hit six three-pointers in the game; Poole (6-11), Curry (6-13) and Klay Thompson (6-16).
