We decided to run a quick match of NBA 2K22 after finally getting our hands on the Sony Playstation 5.
Malik Monk secured a surprise start at the 2-guard next to Russ followed by Trevor Ariza, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis.
Brooklyn rolled out with an obvious starting five - Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris, James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Blake Griffin.
Westbrook's ball handling responsibility allowed LeBron to roam and stretch the floor for Ariza and Davis to the three point line. At times, LeBron blended into the offense as a cut and slash type forward but still felt assertive amongst a thin Brooklyn frontline.
Irving, Durant and Harden were unstoppable, but not enough despite the barrage of never-ending three pointers. Eventually the Lakers bench secured this win thanks to a few three point field-goals from Carmelo Anthony, Talen Horton-Tucker, and a crucial big-man presence from DeAndre Jordan.
