The first three games of the Lakers’ series against the Warriors have been fun, and now only one chance remains for them to steal a win.

Despite losing three times against Golden State this season, the Lakers have pushed the NBA champions to the brink in every game.

Friday’s contest didn’t go to overtime like the first two, but the Lakers got within two points of the Warriors in the fourth quarter.

Here are five takeaways from the Lakers’ 113-106 loss to the Warriors.

Caldwell-Pope shot four of 16 from the floor and made only one of 10 three-point attempts.

Caldwell-Pope addressed the situation for the first time since The Times reported his legal problems.

The Lakers had announced before Caldwell-Pope spoke that he would not answer “Legal questions” and cut the interview off after he was asked what it was like to be away from his teammates.

Ball made five three-pointers Friday night, missing only one of six attempts – a career high.
