Warriors drop home opener to Lakers - Nov 5, 2017

Quinn Cook
It took a while for Santa Cruz Warriors guard Quinn Cook to get things cooking but it wasn't enough to rustle up a victory dish in the team's season home opener. Cook scored a game-high 33 points as the Warriors came up short against the South Bay Lakers 138-135 in front of a sold out crowd at Kaiser Permanente Arena on Saturday night. It was the 32nd straight sellout for Santa Cruz. It was the second straight night Cook scored 30 points or more in a game. 'Man, we lost so those 30 points don't mean nothing,' Cook said. It was the second time both teams went to overtime in series history. The Lakers snapped the Warriors' two-game winning streak against South Bay. A total of six Warriors players including Cook scored double digit points - Damian Jones (18), Georges Niang (24), Alex Hamilton (17), Michael Gbinije (11) and Antonius Cleveland (16). The Warriors still lead the all-time series against the Lakers 26-18 including Saturday night's home opening loss. The matchup dates all the way back to the Warriors' days as the Dakota Wizards. With the game tied late in the fourth quarter, Cook made what looked to be the game-winning shot but Travis Wear knocked in an 18-foot jump shot to tie the game at 128-all. Cook said he was responsible for a turnover late in the game that allowed the Lakers to get back in the game. 'It was a lot of stuff we did that allowed them to get back in the game,' Cook said. 'We stayed solid the first three quarters and midway through the fourth. And I think we kind of let up a little bit defensively.' The Warriors were outscored 10-7 in the overtime period including a six-point performance put on by Lakers guard Scott Machado. Machado finished with 20 points and seven assists for South Bay. Warriors coach Aaron Miles said the offense became stagnant toward the end of the game but thinks they scored enough to get it done. 'We scored more than enough points to win the game,' Miles said. ' It's ridiculous, 138 points we gave up. But like I said, as a coach, I take responsibility.' It was the season-opener for South Bay, which were formerly known as the Los Angeles D-Fenders for 10 years. The Lakers are now 1 of 10 teams to share the same nickname as their parent club in the NBA. The Lakers are 8-3 in season openers, including a 5-1 mark on the road. South Bay won the Pacific Division last year and guard Vander Blue was named the G League MVP. Blue returns as the team's all-time leader in points, rebounds, minutes, field goals and free throws. He also sits as the league's third all-time leading scorer. Blue finished with 25 points to go along with four rebounds and seven assists. He was held to just three points in the first half. Santa Cruz trailed 13-7 early in the first quarter until coach Aaron Miles called a time out to settle things down. The Warriors then went on a 21-7 run and closed out the first quarter with a 38-29 lead. Warriors center Damian Jones and guard Quinn Cook had eight points each in the first. Santa Cruz continued to roll in the second quarter. Jones was still the go-to guy in the first half as he had 16 points, three rebounds and an assist going into halftime. Alex Hamilton, Cook and Michael Gbinije also scored double digit points that helped the Warriors score a season-high 68 points in the first half. Santa Cruz led by as many as 19 points during the third quarter. But the Lakers had spurts of scoring-runs, including a 12-2 run with 3:48 in the third to pull within nine points at 89-80. South Bay made it even closer after Andre Ingram knocked in a 3-point shot to make it 95-88. The Lakers kept creeping back in the fourth despite allowing the Warriors to keep a double digit lead. Machado helped South Bay tie the game at 124-all after his step back jumper fell through with a little more than a minute left. Hamilton put the Warriors back on top with his jump shot but Wear tied it again at 128-128 to send the game to overtime. 'We just got to do a better job of staying composed and executing,' Miles said.
