The start of the 2015-16 NBA season is right around the corner for the Los Angeles Lakers with the storied franchise set to play only two more preseason games before taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 28.

On Saturday, the Lakers faced off against the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors in a strange game that ended prematurely. Players were slipping and sliding all over the basketball floor at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego due to condensation from an ice rink underneath.

The game was ultimately called late in the third quarter due to the danger to the players. Head coach Byron Scott talked about the cancellation of the game and the positive things he saw through the three-quarters played by the Lakers on Saturday night.

Newcomer Marcelo Huertas was one of the bright spots for the Lakers along with the impressive play of Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson. Coach Scott was disappointed that the team was unable to give some playing time to players trying to make the final roster like Jonathan Holmes and Tarik Black, but was happy with the outcome regardless.

Coach Scott and company will get back to work on Monday with the team hosting the Portland Trail Blazers at the Staples Center in the second-to-last preseason game for the Lakers.
