Lakers fans on Twitter are thrilled with win over the Warriors
In only their second game as a whole unit after the flurry of trades they made before the Feb. 9 trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers routed the Golden State Warriors, 124-111, on Thursday.
Yes, Stephen Curry and Andrew Wiggins were out for Golden State, but the Lakers also didn’t have standout point guard D’Angelo Russell, one of their newcomers, for most of the contest after he sustained a sprained ankle.
After the Warriors came to within 59-58 early in the third quarter, L.A., sans Russell, blew them out of the water and built a big lead, even though LeBron James and Anthony Davis combined for just 25 points.
There seems to be a new positive energy gathering around the Lakers and their fans, and it was evident on Twitter during and after the game.

The Lakers are 30% better without Westbrook and with all the new additions. They'll go 17-6 in their final 23 and will rise above the play-in. I wouldn't be surprised if they played Phoenix in the West finals.

Bron was complaining about the additional of the Play-In tournament but it just might turn out to be his best friend!!! If I’m any of those Top dogs in the Western Conference I would be worried about having to see that 30-8-7 a night! The new look Lakers look SCARY!!! Carry on…

Lakers shot 53.3% from 3PT and the bench scored 68 points. That trade saved the season.
