Andrew Bogut, Xavier Henry highlights from Lakers/Warriors in Beijing (VIDEO)

Oct 15, 2013, 10:07 AM EDT

You could have NBA basketball for breakfast Tuesday.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers 101-95 in a game played in Beijing, one that started at 7:30 am Eastern. There were a few highlights so we’re bringing them to you — Xavier Henry with the half-court alley-oop finish from Steve Blake, and Andrew Bogut shutting down Nick Young at the rim.

The odd part of this game: Mark Jackson ran his starters regular season minutes against the Lakers third string. Andre Iguodala played 39 minutes, David Lee 36, Stephen Curry 36, Klay Thompson 35, Andrew Bogut 31. Why? It’s a meaningless preseason game with jet lag issues on both ends, why the big minutes to tire the guys out? With the injuries key players this team have battled in the past keeping minutes under control would seem important.

    The fact that the Lakers are giving serious preseason minutes to Henry shows just how bad they have become

      The fact that the Lakers barely lost a game to Playoff team playing its starters 30+ minutes shows that maybe you’re just too bitter to realize the Lakers are a dark horse in the western conference this year.

      Reload, not Rebuild. LALAKERS!

    I found it strange Jackson would keep his starters out there so long as well. Maybe to boost the Warriors brand in China? Whatever it was, I’m glad the Lakers stuck to their own plan and still put forth a good effort. I wonder if they will consider keeping more than 13 on the roster this year, simply for depth with Kobe out indefinitely and Nash and/or Pau possibly sitting some games out. Less star power no doubt, but the effort thus far is what was hoped for with so many guys in a contract year.
