Lakers remain unbeaten at home in the postseason with a blowout win over Warriors

The Los Angeles Lakers have taken a 2-1 lead in their second-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors after a dominant performance in Game 3. Anthony Davis led the way for the Lakers with 25 points and 13 rebounds, while D'Angelo Russell added 21 points, including five 3-pointers. LeBron James had a slow start, not taking a shot in the first quarter, but finished with 21 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds.

The Warriors struggled on both ends of the court, committing 19 turnovers and shooting just 13 for 44 from beyond the arc. Stephen Curry scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins had 16, but the rest of the team struggled, and the Lakers' strong defense proved too much for the reigning NBA champions. Klay Thompson had 15 points and seven rebounds, but the rest of the roster combined for just 18 points.

Game 4 will be played on Monday night in Los Angeles, and the Warriors will need to find a way to respond if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. Lakers coach Darvin Ham highlighted his team's strong defensive effort, which has been key to their success in recent games: "Los Angeles has built its 16-5 run since March 17 on defense, and the Warriors couldn't hit enough shots from the perimeter to counteract their disadvantages in size and athleticism."

While this much-anticipated playoff rematch between LeBron James and Stephen Curry has yet to live up to the hype, both players have shown flashes of brilliance throughout the series. James has focused on being a playmaker, while Curry has been the Warriors' leading scorer.

The reigning champions will try to regroup

Despite their individual efforts, the series has been marred by garbage time in the past two games, with both coaches opting to rest their stars before the end of the game.

The Warriors will need to regroup and find a way to overcome the Lakers' strong defense if they hope to stay in the playoffs. Lakers fans will be hoping for another strong performance from Davis and James, who have been instrumental in their team's success this season. It remains to be seen whether the Warriors can mount a comeback, but one thing is certain: Game 4 is sure to be an exciting matchup between two of the NBA's top teams.
