Kevin Durant: Lakers Were Figuring Out Identity Before LeBron James' Injury 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 23, 2019 12:00 am

The Golden State Warriors blew out the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday by a final score of 130-111. The win came just under a month after the Warriors lost on Christmas Day when LeBron James was injured.


“They’re a team trying to figure out their identity, and I think they were figuring it out before Bron got hurt,” Kevin Durant said.


The Warriors have faced James' teams 32 times since the 14-15 season.


“I think here, with his injury, it kind of threw a wrench into the chemistry with the team because I think they were in a good groove, especially when they killed us on Christmas,” Durant said. “I think they’re going to be a team to be reckoned with in the playoffs.”


“I don’t know that they’ve played enough games together to even judge it. I know they’ve got some good talent on that team,” said Draymond Green.


“I ain’t going to add nothing to what’s already been said,” Stephen Curry said. “He’s one of the all-time greats. He makes them better. The rest is to be seen.”
