LOS ANGELES — This isn’t golf. You don’t get a practice swing.

In the NBA, you are not allowed to pump-fake a free throw, that’s considered a violation. Carmelo Anthony did it anyway late in the third quarter Wednesday.

Even ‘Melo was cracking up.

Anthony finished with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting on the night, but hit 2-of-4 from three and got a massive ovation when he checked in the game. It wasn’t enough. Lakers not named LeBron James and Anthony Davis struggled on the night and Los Angeles fell to the Warriors, 121-114.
