Second Half Struggles Sink Dubs in Summer League Finale
Warriors finish 3-2 in 2019 NBA Summer League
In an exhilarating consolation round matchup, the Warriors fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 88-87 on Friday. The squad started out strong, with a vigorous defensive effort earning the Dubs 24-point lead going into the half.
