Gasol was the only player to start the first 26 games for the Lakers. The Lakers committed 24 turnovers, while the Warriors had 18. Los Angeles already was without Kobe Bryant , Steve Nash , Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar . Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol did not play against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night because of an upper respiratory infection. In his last six games, Gasol has averaged 17.7 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.7 blocks while shooting 58.7 percent from the field. Stephen Curry scored 18 points and Klay Thompson added 17 points to help the Warriors pull away with a 26-8 spurt to start the third quarter. Kaman, who has spoken up about his lack of playing time on several occasions this season, said he doesn't know if the sudden promotion to starter will mean more minutes down the road.
