Here's what to take away from the 2 preseason games of the night in the NBA with a loss for the Lakers' Big Three.


Lakers lose with their Big Three

NBA preseason results of the night

Raptors - Wizards : 113-108

Warriors - Lakers : 99-111


Lakers received 0/5 

A catastrophic preseason for the Los Angeles Lakers ! In 5 games, the Californians recorded 5 defeats ! The last one against the Golden State Warriors (99-111) who were playing without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, James Wiseman or Jonathan Kuminga. On the other hand, the Angelenos lined up, for the first time, their Big Three...

Individually, LeBron James (17 points) and Anthony Davis (20 points) were rather correct. On his side, Russell Westbrook (10 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists) had again a very big waste: 3/9 shooting and 5 lost balls.

But with the exception of rookie Austin Reaves (10 points) and Rajon Rondo (6 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists), the other Lakers struggled to have a positive impact. Not really a good sign before the start of the season...

On the other hand, we will remember the nice contribution of Otto Porter Jr (16 points). But also the real confirmation of the potential of Jordan Poole (18 points in 19 minutes). The young talent of 22 years old rises in power and has a real card to play in the Dubs' rotation.

The Lakers still put on a show in this game. Able to hurt on quick transitions, the Angelenos can also count on the return of the Rondo-Davis connection. The point guard regaled his interior, always ready to fly, on several occasions. For the pleasure of the eyes!

Bradley Beal's ordeal...

But the Lakers weren't the only ones having a bad night. Bradley Beal too. The Washington Wizards lost to the Toronto Raptors (108-113) with a Beal (7 points) simply at the street: 1/11 in shots.

Faced with the failure of their leader - well limited by Scottie Barnes - the Wizards managed to stay in the game thanks to Kyle Kuzma (24 points) and Daniel Gafford (14 points and 17 rebounds). But on the other side, Goran Dragic (16 points) was helped by the contributions off the bench of Sam Dekker (18 points) and Malachi Flynn (22 points). The duo was decisive in the 4th quarter!

Despite a terrible differential (-20, the worst of his team), Montrezl Harrell gives the impression to want to crush everything on his way. Revengeful after his failure at the Lakers, the interior slammed 17 points on this game. Including this poster!
