Lakers Defeat Mavs In OT Thriller, Warriors Season Continues To Unravel, Seahawks Claim Gordon Off Waivers

Grace Higgins | November 2nd, 2019

Make no mistake about it. Friday night’s meeting between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks saw three of the NBA’s biggest stars on the court at one time. Of course, you have Anthony Davis and LeBron James out there for the Lakers. And they did what you would hope and expect that they would, combining for 68 total points in a 119-110 overtime victory. But don’t forget about Luka Doncic, either, who played his part in making the game as entertaining as it was. Doncic, just like James, would finish the night with a triple-double, scoring 31, grabbing 13 rebounds, and dishing out 15 assists. James had a bigger night, however, with 39, 12, and 16, all as he led the Lakers back from a ten-point deficit in the fourth quarter in Dallas. It was Danny Green, the new big shot ‘Bob,’ who had tied the game with just seconds remaining with a three-pointer in regulation. Once OT began, it was all one-way traffic, with Davis, who had 29 points, dunking twice in a row to set the tone. The Lakers ended up taking the extra period 16-7, taking them to 4-1 on the season. The Mavericks are now 3-2.

Dallas Morning News

The news of Steph Curry’s injury and the fact that he will be out around three months earlier this week had made the Golden State Warriors look toothless to many. Already with Klay Thompson out with an ACL injury and Kevin Durant long gone, it now looks like their next biggest start, Draymond Green, has picked up a woe of his own. The controversial star appears to have injured his finger in their latest loss, a 127-110 defeat to the San Antonio Spurs at home. Green called it a ‘ligament’ injury, so there is no word yet on how severe it truly is or if he will need an MRI or any additional treatment. At this point, we could very well see the Warriors go into ‘tank’ mode, as they are 1-4 now and winless at home. Patty Mills was the hero for the Spurs on the night, scoring 31 points off the bench in a less than full Chase Center.

Golden State of Mind

You just knew that someone would do it. Someone would took the gamble as soon as the New England Patriots let wide receiver Josh Gordon go. They did so a few days ago, and the Seattle Seahawks were the team that decided to pounce, claiming the troubled but talented star off waivers. Gordon, who has not played since October 10th for the Pats, will not play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, he could be ready for the big match up with division rival San Francisco the following week. Head coach Pete Carroll did not make any promises, though, vowing that he’d basically have to prove he deserved to play. Let’s hope this move works out for Gordon, who can be one of the league’s top talents when healthy.
