Under the command of Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers won their first of the new season NBA. Last night (26), playing for the first time in front of their fans, the team of Davis and LeBron James beat the Phoenix Suns 100 to 95, after a great performance in the last quarter.
It was the Lakers’ second game of the regular season. In their debut, the team had lost to the current champion Denver Nuggets. This time, Davis led the team with a “double-double” of 30 points and 12 rebounds. LeBron approached a “triple-double” with 21 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.
At the end of the match, the star was praised by his rivals. “It was difficult. He was practically guiding the team, like a coach, on the court, especially on defense. That’s what he’s been doing his entire career. It’s always a battle to face players that smart,” said Kevin Durant.
