Sunday’s second-half surge from the Golden State Warriors wasn’t enough to recover against the Los Angeles Lakers. The dubs were able to tie the game after being down nine points in the fourth quarter, but never took the lead and eventually fell 113-108 to the Lakers.

Following the loss, Golden State made a few roster moves. The team announced that they had reassigned Moses Moody and Lester Quinones to the Santa Cruz Warriors, the Dubs’ G-League affiliate.

“The 2022 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have assigned guards Moses Moody and Lester Quinones to the team’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, it was announced today,” the organization wrote in a press release.

The Warriors shared a quick rundown of Moody’s stats this year, writing, “Moody is averaging 4.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 13.4 minutes in 50 games (three starts) with Golden State this season.

In his 50 appearances for the Dubs this year, Lamb has played about 20 minutes each time. The 25-year-old has put up some solid numbers in his limited time, averaging 7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game, while shooting 47.5% from the field and 37.9% from deep.
