LOS ANGELES — Steve Kerr took a frustrated timeout before the Warriors had a point. Golden State missed its first four 3s, including two Steph Curry clangs, giving him 12 long-range bricks on 12 attempts in Los Angeles this season. The Staples Center was working its Warrior voodoo magic early.
But it didn’t last. Moments after Curry’s second miss, Kevin Durant pinpointed a cross-court pass through traffic into Curry’s hands. He rose and, finally, nailed a left corner 3. The Curry hex was lifted. A Warrior barrage followed, resulting in a 109-85 Friday night win over the Lakers.
It was the Warriors’ second straight blowout of the Lakers and 10th straight win overall, pushing them to 14-2 on the season. Earlier Friday night, the Clippers fell in Detroit, dropping them to 14-3 and giving the Warriors sole possession of the West’s top seed for the first time this season.
This Golden State victory, unlike many this season, was built on the back of a stingy end-to-end defensive effort, making a solid but not spectacular offensive performance hold up.
The Lakers entered the night at a disadvantage. They were missing three talented offensive players: D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Nick Young. Without the trio, the Lakers struggled to create any consistent string of good looks.
The Warriors were sturdy on the perimeter and disruptive even when the Lakers got past the frontline. Golden State blocked 10 more shots on Friday night, upping the per game total to 6.2 this season, tied for the league’s third most. They became the first team with three games of double-digit blocks.
“They shot 35 percent from the field,” Durant said. “That’s what you want.”
Zaza Pachulia was the surprise contributor in this category on Friday night. He entered the night with three blocks combined in the season’s first 15 games. He had three blocks against the Lakers.
Included among them: Pachulia got talented Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram on an isolation switch, stayed with him on a dribble move and then stuffed his shot. It was a lowlight of a rough performance for Ingram, who…

LOS ANGELES — The last time the Golden State Warriors visited Staples Center they suffered a surprising 20-point thumping by the Los Angeles Lakers. Since then, the Warriors have reeled off nine wins in a row.
The Warriors and the Lakers meet Friday for the second time in three days and the third time this month.
On Wednesday, the Warriors (13-2) delivered some payback in a 149-106 rout at Oracle Arena of the short-handed Lakers, who played without starting point guard D’Angelo Russell — out two weeks with a sore left knee — and forward Julius Randle (hip pointer). It was the most points scored by an NBA team this season.
“I don’t think a team I’ve been on has ever scored 150 points in a game,” said Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, according to the East Bay Times. “But I can settle for 149.”
Stephen Curry (31), Kevin Durant (28) and Thompson (26) combined for 85 points. The Warriors, who recorded a franchise-record 47 assists, scored 80 points in the first half.
“It was a beautiful exhibition that (the Warriors) put on,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “As painful as this one was, that’s the beauty of the NBA. You always have another chance to redeem…
