JaMychal Green will start in place of Kevon Looney; Lakers-Warriors live updates, lineups, injury report, how to watch, TV

If Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal series between the No. 6 Golden State Warriors and No. 7 Los Angeles Lakers is any indication, we’re in for a spicy second round. Lakers center Anthony Davis took over Game 1 with 30 points and 23 rebounds as Los Angeles won 117-112 and took a 1-0 series lead.

This is the version of AD that many Lakers fans have been waiting for, and if he can continue this production, the path to the NBA Finals could be open. Meanwhile, the Warriors are still the defending champions and beat the upstart Sacramento Kings in seven games in the first round. Stephen Curry, coming off his 50-point Game 7, needs his fellow stars to step up in this series. Kevon Looney is a monster on the boards. Can he pull off another 20-plus-rebound game?
