Kevon Looney was inserted back into the starting lineup Friday night in place of rookie Jonathan Kuminga. The Warriors hoped Looney would be able to minimize the advantage Memphis had with Steven Adams and Jaren Jackson Jr. on the frontline.

The 6-foot-9 Looney did more than neutralize Adams. The veteran Warriors big man grabbed a staggering 22 rebounds, scored four points, dished out five assists and was a play-10 in 35 minutes.
