The Washington Wizards (11-17) beat the Los Angeles Lakers (22-10) 127-124 in overtime on Monday night (local time). This is their fifth consecutive win, this time against defending NBA champions.
As you might have guessed, the Wizards were comparing most of this time, including Anthony Davis and the team had lost three of their last four games. The Lakers took a double-digit lead in the second quarter and a 17-point lead early in the third.
From there, the Wizards made a comeback and even took a short lead for a tood in the fourth. Okay, let me sue again. They came back.
They took the lead!
And the lead increased by one point to 102-94.
Although the Lakers were able to tie the game in 115 by coming back, all were in regulation, and Washington never let Shingt go gas, where Bradley Bill continued to make clutch baskets.
And Russell Westbrook has a clutch and a one-basket and things to keep things in favor of Shington.
Bill scored 33 points and disallowed ass assists while Westbrook added 326 points, 14 rebounds and 9 rebounds. Both also did at least 50 percent from the field. Among the supporting cast, Danny Avidija had 8 points and 8 rebounds, but seems to be getting key rebounds when needed. Rui Hachimura also made a good defense against LeBron James.
James led the LA scorers with 31 points and 13 assists.
The Wizards will continue their road trip against the Los Angeles Clippers tomorrow at 10pm and 10pm. Tired is not sleep for my friends. I got a preview to write so here’s your place to chat about the win.
