"When you move around, you never get your feet under you," Henry said. "When you have an equal opportunity like this, I'm just trying to show what I can do."

Gasol and Nash are expected to play for the Lakers on Sunday night at Staples Center against Denver.

The stars' absence was one reason the teams fell far short of a sellout crowd at Citizens Business Bank Arena in the Inland Empire, an hour's drive east from downtown Los Angeles.

Klay Thompson scored 26 points on 11-for-18 shooting, and Andre Iguodala had 15 points while missing just one shot in his first action with the Warriors, who signed him to a four-year, $48 million deal in July.

Harrison Barnes and David Lee scored 10 points apiece, while Stephen Curry had five points in 14 quiet minutes.

The Warriors' starting five fell behind 7-0 before scoring 15 consecutive points. Iguodala immediately showed off his post-up game and his ball-handling versatility in the first quarter, scoring nine points.

Young heated up in the second, scoring 17 first-half points in less than 14 minutes. The Los Angeles native joined the Lakers during the summer, finally putting on the jersey of his favorite childhood team — and he'll have plenty of chances to do his best Kobe impersonation while the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history is out this month.

"I know he's probably watching," Young said of Bryant.
