‘James 30 points, 9 rebounds’ Lakers win 126-108 against Denver

Also ‘King’. LeBron James (38, LA Lakers) led the team to victory with overwhelming performance without Anthony Davis (29).

The Lakers won 126-108 in a home game against the Denver Nuggets in the 2022-23 season at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California on the 17th (Korean time). The Lakers recorded a 12-17 season record with this victory, and Denver recently ended a three-game winning streak.

James’ presence was decisive. James played a big role with 30 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists that day. Veteran partner Russell Westbrook (15 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists) also backed up with a triple-double. Although Davis, the team ace, was injured during the game, Thomas Bryant contributed with 21 points and 6 rebounds and Austin Rivers with 15 points. Denver’s ace Nikola Jokic recorded 25 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals, and Jamal Murray recorded 23 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists, but did not win.

At the beginning of the game, the momentum was even. Both teams came out aggressively. In Denver, Aaron Gordon scored a total of 14 points in the first half, and for the Lakers, James also played an active part with 16 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in the first half.

It was a game that was tight at 65-64 in the first half, but a variable occurred in the third quarter. Davis, who complained of foot pain from the end of the second quarter, could not play anymore in the second half. He could have given up the flow, but Bryant filled Davis’ void at the bottom of the goal. James also played a center role and filled the vacancy in the team.

The Lakers, who did not give the flow, were rather ahead of the momentum from the end of the third quarter. Dennis Schroeder and Max Christie opened the gap to more than 10 points by making consecutive 3-pointers메이저사이트. The Lakers, who gained momentum, showed off fast basketball in the 4th quarter and got a clear advantage. The score was 33-20 only in the 4th quarter, and they ran away by more than 20 points just before the end of the game, consolidating their winning streak.
