NBA playoffs: Klay Thompson, Warriors light up Lakers to even series at 1-1
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr made pregame adjustments, inserting JaMychal Green into the starting lineup in place of Kevon Looney, who reportedly was feeling ill.

Stephen Curry made way for Thompson, playing a spacer point guard role.
After Anthony Davis took over in Game 1 to drop 30 points and grab 23 rebounds in leading Los Angeles to a 117-112 win and 1-0 series lead, his presence was been felt in Game 2. Meanwhile, Draymond Green's "force" was a decisive factor as the Warriors rolled to a 127-100 win to even the series at 1-1. Game 3 is Saturday (8:30 p.m. ET, ABC) in Los Angeles.
