The rest of the game was called off with 2:16 left in the third when moisture spots, caused by ice below the court at the Valley View Casino Center, made portions of the playing court too slippery to play in.

Rookie guard D’Angelo Russell, who was the Lakers’ top pick, started after he missed two games with a bruised glute. He had two points.

Curry had 14 first-half points on  4-for-8 shooting on three-pointers.

Nick Young hit three consecutive three-pointers for the Lakers in less than two minutes in the second quarter.
