The Los Angeles Lakers (13-14) were looking for a season high four consecutive wins, and the Golden State Warriors (18-10) have taken the league by storm, but those were not the headlines for tonight’s game. No, the headline was the return of Lakers’ point guard Steve Nash (missed 24 games due to broken fibula).
In Steve Nash’s first game back after missing 24, the 12-14 Lakers went on the road to play the 18-9 Warriors. They trailed by 14 in the fourth quarter, but battled back to force overtime, and then won it with clutch offense and solid defense.
This was an electric game, but it was also a very strange one.
