LThe Lakers, with LeBron dressed in a suit and hat on the bench, took the game forward against the Spurs (114-106) thanks to a stellar Anthony Davis (34 + 15). ‘La Ceja’, who went to halftime with 27 points and 8 rebounds, was well supported by Horton-Tucker (17), who debuted with the Angelenos after overcoming his injury, Malik Monk (16) and Ellington (15 with 5 / 7 t3). Westbrook (14 + 11 + 7) was inconsistent and Carmelo (15 + 5) was inconsistent, but scored a triple key to sentence (110-103).
In the Spurs they pulled Keldon Johnson (24 + 6), Dejonte Murray (22 + 10), Vessell (19 + 7) and Young (17 + 9), but their effort was in vain. They came to lose by up to 14 points, but never gave up and got within two points with 2.41 from the end (105-103) after the triples of Thadeuss Young and McDermott.
However, they did not finish the comeback, as the Lakers reacted immediately with a great basket from Horton-Tucker and a providential triple from Carmelo Anthony with 1.46 from the conclusion (110-103). And Westbrook hit a layup to close out the win over a hasty Spurs in the dying moments.
Shouts of “MVP, MVP” from the Staples
Anthony Davis justified with his performance his words of two days ago, when after falling by 24 points in the Staples Centyer before the Wolves, he described what happened as “shameful performance”. This time he redeemed himself and even the Los Angeles fans screamed at him for “MVP, MVP” when he took two final free throws. Will redemption last until LeBron James returns?
