Preview: Warriors head to L.A. to face Lakers in second preseason game. Let’s get ready to rumble on Friday night! https://t.co/H8AVVrJN6Q— Golden State of Mind (@unstoppablebaby) October 13, 2023
What To Watch For:
Big offseason trade acquisition Chris Paul made his highly anticipated debut for the Warriors during last Saturday’s preseason game. Paul finished his night with six points, five assists, and four rebounds. His performance helped eased the concerns regarding his fit with the starters as he masterfully controlled the pace of the game while setting up teammates for easy scoring opportunities.
While the starters were only on the floor for 13 minutes during the preseason opener, their playing time is expected to increase on Friday night according to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater.
Jonathan Kuminga questionable, Draymond Green out tonight vs Lakers. All other main Warriors expected to play in LA. Steve Kerr said he will edge up the starter’s minutes from the preseason opener.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) October 13, 2023
With Draymond Green still ruled out due to an ankle injury, Paul should continue to be a fixture of the team’s starting lineup, making these preseason games interesting as Golden State continues to integrate him into the offense.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
