OAKLAND — At the end of the toughest four-game stretch any team will play this season, the Lakers looked like they had finally run out of steam.

They trailed by 23 points in the third quarter against the defending champs. It was time to go home. But this Lakers team, while it may be losing, has consistently found its way back into games.

That was the case once more on Friday, when the Lakers stormed all the way back to take a fourth-quarter lead before falling 113-106 to the Golden State Warriors.
