Warriors rout Lakers 136-97 in preseason finale for both

ANAHEIM — Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson each scored 24 points and Harrison Barnes had 23 as the Golden State Warriors routed the Los Angeles Lakers 136-97 on Thursday night in the last preseason game for both teams.

Warriors: Curry, last season’s MVP, made nine of 14 shots, was 4 for 8 from 3-point range and added 10 assists. … The Warriors outscored the Lakers by 38 points while Barnes was on the floor. … Curry, Thompson and Barnes all sat out the fourth quarter.

Lakers: Lou Williams scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half after missing two games because of a sore groin. … Shooting guard Jordan Clarkson left the game with 5:25 left in the first because of a sprained right shoulder.

Kobe watch: Lakers coach Byron Scott is confident that Kobe Bryant will be ready for the season opener after missing his third straight because of a bruised left leg. “There’s no doubt in my mind,” Scott said.

Up next: The Warriors begin defense of their NBA title on Tuesday night at the New Orleans Pelicans. The Lakers start the season Wednesday at Staples Center against Minnesota.
