The Lakers took a 55-46 lead at the half with Gasol scoring 16 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field. Blake, who scored eight of his 10 first-half points in the quarter, also helped the Lakers extend their 22-21 lead after one quarter by outscoring Golden State 33-25 in the second.
The Warriors, though, rallied in the third quarter. Iguodala's 3-pointer tied the score at 63 with 4:22 left. But the Warriors never scored again in the quarter, and the Lakers closed it with a 12-0 run with Young and Farmar combining for the final 10 points.
Young gave the Lakers an 83-67 lead with 8:43 left in the game on a three-point play. The Warriors cut the deficit to 91-81 on a bucket by Barnes with 4:41 remaining, but Golden State could never get over the hump.
NOTES: Defense has been pivotal in the Warriors' strong start, coach Mark Jackson said defense has been a key in the team's strong start heading into Friday's game. "Very pleased. That's how we win ballgames, on the defensive end," Jackson said. "If you look at the (last) two games we've lost, Memphis and San Antonio, we've lost with good defensive efforts. Overall, we're a good defensive team." ... Golden State F-C Jermaine O'Neal sat out with a bruised right knee and groin strain. He is listed as day-to-day. ...
