Half: Warriors 53, Lakers 45

OAKLAND — Monta Ellis scored 23 points for Golden State in the first half tonight, which helped to explain why the Lakers trailed the Warriors. Pau Gasol countered with 14 points, seven rebounds and three assists for the Lakers, who were trying for their sixth consecutive victory and their eighth in nine games since a three-game losing streak. There were no signs of the ease with which they dispatched the Cleveland Cavaliers by 55 points on Tuesday.
