LeBron James and Anthony Davis joined forces today in the Los Angeles Lakers’ comfortable victory over the Dallas Mavericks of Luka Doncic, who could not lead his team to victory in the most outstanding game of the special day of the NBA for Christmas day.
Marc Gasol, who on Tuesday had an unfortunate debut with the Los Angeles team, was very active in the paint today with 9 rebounds and also added 2 points in the 19 minutes he played. The Spanish pivot came out today again in the starting five.
James (22 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds) and Davis (28 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists) led some unstoppable Lakers on offense who scored their first win of the season and thus made up for Tuesday’s loss against their neighbors and rivals the Los Angeles Clippers.
For his part, Doncic was excellent with 27 points (9 of 19 in shooting), 7 assists and 4 rebounds, but he was very alone in the attack of some Mavericks who have started the season with their left foot after losing their first two games .
