TNT commentator Grant Hill probably summed up the first half of tonight's game between the Golden State Warriors and L.A. Lakers best: "It's like target practice right now, Marv...almost like they've conceded that Golden State is that much better."
And maybe the Lakers should just concede — why stand in the way of history when you can become a part of it as a footnote?
At halftime, it certainly looks as though the Warriors are well on their way to their 16th victory of the season as they lead a lackluster Lakers team, 54-38.
"It's almost as if they've conceded..." Sums things up well... https://t.co/YiMGJ30oUB— Nate P (@NateP_SBN) November 25, 2015
This was a nice play, mostly because the Lakers put up all the resistance of a set of cones: https://t.co/gGVfn1bhuy— Nate P (@NateP_SBN) November 25, 2015

Draymond Green leads the Warriors with a game-high 14 points while Stephen Curry has barely gotten started, scoring 10 points on 4-for-11 shooting to go with a game-high five assists — Curry, in fact, has more assists than the entire Lakers team (4), which didn't record an assist in the entire first quarter and shot just 23.8 percent from the field.
Curry and Thompson combined to shoot just 5-for-19 from the field, but the TNT crew didn't even do any analysis beyond the highlights — Kenny Smith declared the 1993-94 Houston Rockets record-tying 15-0 already dead.
In other news, Hill believes that talk of the Warriors getting to 72 wins is premature.
