Lakers’ LeBron James, Anthony Davis Hyped by Fans as NBA’s Best Duo After Thunder Win

BR (SPORTS) – LeBron James and Anthony Davis led the Los Angeles Lakers to one of their biggest wins of the season on Monday night.

The All-Star duo combined for 52 points, 22 rebounds and 11 assists in a 112-105 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder to help the Lakers snap their two-game losing skid.

The third quarter proved to be the difference, as the Lakers outscored Oklahoma City 34-26. Davis scored 11 points, grabbed six rebounds and played all 12 minutes. Austin Reaves scored nine of his 16 points and went 4-of-4 from the field.

James was terrific in the second half, scoring 17 of his 25 points after the intermission. He made 12 field goals in a game for the first time since Dec. 31.

Fans were excited to proclaim the Lakers’ dynamic duo as the best in the NBA after scoring a win over a Thunder team that entered the day tied with the Minnesota Timberwolves for fewest losses in the Western Conference.

The Lakers defense did a terrific job of containing Oklahoma City. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was held to 24 points on 9-of-19 shooting. It was just the fourth time in his last 20 games he failed to score at least 30 points.

Chet Holmgren’s nine points were tied for his second-fewest in a game all season. The Thunder shot just 41.7 percent from the field.

This game was an indication the Lakers are capable of competing with the best teams in the Western Conference. They need to find consistency from game-to-game in order to reach their full potential, but it’s certainly possible for this group to make a run when James and Davis are playing at this level.

The Lakers will look to keep their positive momentum going on Wednesday when they host the Dallas Mavericks at Arena.
