Stephen Curry had a quiet game. He had 20 points and 12 assists after taking the traditional point guard role. The significant adjustment was inserting JaMychal Green instead of Kevon Looney in the lineup. Green made an impact scoring 15 points in 12 minutes, per ESPN.

Meanwhile, LeBron James led the Lakers with 23 points. Anthony Davis struggled, scoring just 11 points in 32 minutes despite having a spectacular Game 1 where he had 30 points and 23 rebounds.

Since Barcelona will not be in action for another nine days, Pedri and Garcia traveled to San Francisco to watch the reigning NBA champions.

No team in La Liga is in action this weekend due to the Copa del Rey final on Saturday night.

Both players were rooting for the Warriors, who are defending their NBA crown, per Football Espana.

Spiderman stars Tom Holland and Zendaya were also in attendance.

Sports Brief earlier reported on Warriors veteran Draymond Green wearing the jersey of Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann before Game 2.

In photos shared on social media, Green was spotted wearing Griezmann's jersey hours after the Spanish club had shared a video of their striker in Green's jersey before a La Liga game.

Griezmann is known to be a huge basketball fan and once said he loves Derrick Rose.
