OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Klay Thompson had a sensational shooting effort while scoring 38 points Wednesday, launching Golden State to a 125-94 rout of the Los Angeles Lakers.
It was easily the most one-sided game played over the first two evenings of NBA action this season.
One night after opening their campaign with a victory over the home-town rival Clippers, the Lakers were overwhelmed from the middle of the second period to the end of the contest.
Thompson hit 15-of-19 from the field, made four 3-pointers and paced a 54-percent shooting performance by the Warriors. Golden State converted 15-of-27 from beyond the arc.
Golden State took a 19-point lead at halftime and built it to 33 heading into the fourth quarter.
