Lakers Highlights: Top 5 players in preseason win over Warriors

A look at which five roster members shined brightest in Wednesday's preseason game (October 10).


LeBron James

It's no surprise that all eyes were focused on King James in this Vegas preseason matchup. He didn't disappoint in his 18 minutes, either. James had a few smooth breakaways, some sweet ally-oops to his L.A. teammates, and, of course, that breathtaking buzzer-beater before the half. 15 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists will seem like nothing once the season is underway.


Brandon Ingram

The Lakers' leading scorer, due to getting the most time of anyone from the starting lineup. He also took 17 free throws in the game and hit 14 of them. He'd end up going 5-of-13 from the field and tallying 26 points, along with five boards in the win.


Kyle Kuzma

Coming off the bench, for a team loaded with a variety of talent, makes it tougher to stand out, but Kuzma is one of the young stars. He's considered a steal from last season's draft class, and for good reason. Kuzma was 7-of-16 in the game and finished with 22 points overall. He's going to be a great reserve, if that's his role in the coming season, and may even be among Sixth Man of the Year contenders.


Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Caldwell-Pope could very well be the unsung hero of this Lakers' roster. On Wednesday night, the former Pistons star had 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting, including a 3-of-6 rate from downtown. He's got a nearly 41 percent field goal rate for his career, so he'll be a valuable shooter for this team, full of mostly slashing playmakers.


Lance Stephenson

If one player is going to stand out in dramatic fashion from this roster, it looks like Lance Stephenson fits the bill. Stephenson was enjoying himself in this game and even convinced the refs to T up his opponent for bouncing the ball a bit too high after a foul. Lance made em' dance and finished with 12 points off the bench too.
