Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr made pregame changes, inserting Jamichael Green into the starting lineup in place of the reportedly ailing Kevon Looney. Looney will see more time in Game 2 on Thursday. Klay Thompson is on fire for the Warriors against the LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers. Steph Curry leads Thompson in the spacer point guard role.
After Anthony Davis took over in Game 1, dropping 30 points and grabbing 23 rebounds in Los Angeles’ 117-112 win and a 1-0 series lead, his presence wasn’t felt in Game 2. Meanwhile, Draymond Green’s “force” has been felt.
