On a joyous night at Chase Center, where massive Golden State fan and K-pop sensation BamBam shook the house down with a spirited halftime performance in the Warriors’ final regular-season home game, Jordan Poole added 19 points and a career-high 11 assists.

Talen Horton-Tucker led a Lakers team that was without LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Carmelo Anthony, and Russell Westbrook to a career-high 40 points on 15-for-28 shooting. Los Angeles fell for the eighth time in a row, despite Malik Monk’s 24 points.

“We’ll attempt to win all three games. We’re just getting started with this, so let’s get things moving. I believe we would benefit greatly if we could build on these last two victories and enter next week on a winning streak “Steve Kerr, the Warriors’ coach, stated. “However, whatever happens with seeding will happen, and we’ll just play whoever we’re going to play.”

By the 5:07 mark of the first quarter, Los Angeles had made eight of its first 12 shots and had made 11 trips to the free-throw line, shooting 31 free throws to the Warriors’ ten. The opponents’ previous three matches had all been decided by seven points or less.
