Anthony Davis gives Lakers a win without LeBron
American player Anthony Davis aka AD was part of two key plays in the Los Angeles Lakers hard-fought victory. AD scored 25 points in the 93-89 win over the Denver Nuggets. Let’s take into consideration that LeBron James could not participate in this victory because he has an ankle injury.
L.A. managed to lead by 14 points, but Denver reacted with full force led by Nikola Jokic. Jokic, scored 32 points, had 9 rebounds, 2 steals and 5 assists. The battle was close, near the end it was 89-87. If we are sure of something, is that it was not an easy victory.
Davis secured the win
Anthony “AD” Davis made a mid-range touchdown with 41.8 seconds left in the game. Thanks to that, he gave the locals a four-point lead. On the other side, Jokic answered with two free throws, but Talen Horton-Tucker scored a layup with just 15.1 seconds to play.
Davis secured the win by deflecting a shot from Argentine Facundo Campazzo, and that’s a big positive for the team. The reason? Recall that L.A. has lost six of its last eight games. This win puts them in fifth place over the Dallas Mavericks.
It was not an outstanding game
It should be noted that it was not an outstanding game. Alex Caruso filled in for Schroder and had 11 points, 3 assists and 5 rebounds. Meanwhile, Horton-Tucker and Caldwell-Pope, both with 10 points, completed the list of five L.A. players in double figures.
Denver had their MVP and very good attacks from Michael Porter Jr, who had 19 points and 6 rebounds. Javale McGee consolidated as the third scorer with 10 points and Facu contributed 8 points, 8 assists, 4 rebounds and 5 steals in his 37 minutes of play. Finally, it should be noted that the Lakers will have to win if they do not want to face the Golden State Warriors in a head-to-head game.
