Lakers coach Luke Walton spent the past two years as an assistant for the Golden State Warriors and said he was "surprised" by the Warriors' 29-point loss to the Spurs. "But San Antonio, there's a reason they've been that good for that long," Walton continued. "They've got the best coach in the game right now. They've got talented players. It always take a little bit of time for those ‘super teams' or whatever you call them to figure each other out and create their own identity. I was surprised, but it's one game. They're going to be fine."
