Draymond Green sparks fire; Warriors attack the Lakers from deep to bolster Play-in position  

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 134-120 on Tuesday, putting the race to rise above the second play-in line in the last five days of the regular season.  

The Warriors are the West's No. 10 seed and can finish above the Lakers for No. 9 after winning the season tiebreaker. The season ends on Sunday.   

Sacramento leads Golden State by two games (Sacramento is up by one loss but owns the tiebreaker) with three to go, making it possible to catch the Kings for the No. 8 seed and seal a playoff position. Since they've won that tiebreaker, the Kings lead the Lakers by two games.

Thus, the Warriors and Lakers may play a one-and-done elimination game as the Nos. 9 and 10 seeds. By making 26 3-pointers at 63.4% (26 for 41)  

the Warriors took a huge stride toward securing the home game. In 237 NBA games, a team has made at least 22 3-pointers.  

No one has done so more than Golden State. Three off the NBA record of 29 established by the Milwaukee Bucks against Miami in 2020,  

and one off the Warriors' franchise high of 27 against Portland last April and Oklahoma City in 2021.   

Only the Rockets, who hit 27 triples against Utah last month, have made more 3s this season, and Golden State's 26 is the most the Lakers have allowed in franchise history.
