OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Klay Thompson scored a career-high 38 points in a spectacular shooting performance, and the Golden State Warriors whipped the Los Angeles Lakers 125-94 in their much-anticipated season opener Wednesday night.

 

The former WSU star finished 15 of 19 from the floor, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range, to lead the Warriors to the runaway win. Golden State led by 19 at the half, 33 at the end of the third quarter and 35 early in the fourth.

Former Zags Elias Harris and Rob Sacre saw time for the Lakers. Sacre finished with two points.

 

David Lee added 25 points, eight rebounds and five assists, and Stephen Curry had 10 points and six assists as the Warriors trounced a rebuilding Lakers team playing without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash.

 

Jodie Meeks scored 14 points and Pau Gasol had 12 points and seven rebounds for an overmatched Lakers team playing on back-to-back nights. Los Angeles beat the Clippers on Tuesday night in their season opener.
