Trevelin Queen’s game-high 21 points and a furious rally from a 17-point deficit led the Los Angeles Lakers to an 84-76 win over the Golden State Warriors in an MGM Resorts Summer League playoff game at Thomas and Mack Center on Tuesday night.
The Warriors appeared to be in control early, forging a nine-point lead by halftime. They managed to tack on another four points during the third quarter, but the final 10 minutes belonged to the Lakers. Los Angeles outscored Golden State by a 34-13 margin during that span to notch the comeback win — one that saw its second unit outscore the Warriors’ bench by a massive 53-19 spread.

Vic Law furnished 11 points, nine boards, two assists and one steal. Tres Tinkle matched Law’s point total and added five rebounds, one assist and one block.
