Golden State Warriors got a little revenge for its Christmas Day loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, claiming a victory in the NBA on Saturday.

LeBron James injured his groin in the last contest between these teams, but Los Angeles pulled out a win. He sat out this time for load management, as he just returned to the court from his injury.

Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 20 points while Rajon Rondo totalled 12 points and 11 assists.

The Warriors' 11-game winning run was snapped against the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, but they could be poised to begin another hot streak.

Harris poor for Nets

Cruel Cousins

The 76ers' Ben Simmons took off and slammed one home over Nemanja Bjelica.


Thunder at Celtics
