There was some frustration on the visiting Lakers’ bench, as the game was close for most of the night. At one point in the second half, a heated argument erupted — between teammates.

Lakers Isaiah Thomas and Julius Randle were caught exchanging some angry words during a timeout. Several of their teammates, including Lonzo Ball, had to step in to separate the pair and calm them down.

Randle and Thomas later reconciled by shaking hands:

Lakers coach Luke Walton said he was unsure what the argument was about, but that he enjoyed the passion his players displayed and added that he encourages them to be open-minded.

The Warriors won the game at Oracle Arena 117-106. Kevin Durant led the defending champions with 26 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals. Golden State was missing stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green due to injuries. The win ended a two-game losing streak for the Warriors. Ball continued to struggle with shooting: the rookie finished with eight and 11 assists on 3-of-11 shooting from the field and 1-of-8 shooting from 3-point range.

Seven Warriors in total scored in double figures.
