Los Angeles Lakers from LeBron James, who are in a serious sports crisis, took a breath this Friday by beating the Orlando Magic, the worst team in the NBA and has only won 8 of its 47 games (105-116).
After a very worrying streak and several humiliating defeats, the Lakers (23-23) seemed to have a suitable rival tonight to change their dynamic.
The Magic are last in the Eastern Conference with the worst record in the league (8-39 after today’s loss), they had lost 13 of their last 14 games, and they had only won 2 of the 18 games they had played at home.
LeBron James (29 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists), Carmelo Anthony (23 points with 4 of 5 in triples) and Russell Westbrook (18 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals) led the Angelenos to victory.
Despite his good numbers, the point guard (44 million dollars per season) was once again the protagonist of one of the worst plays of the night in the NBA with a mid-range shot that went directly to the top of the board.
