NBA Roundup: Lakers Survives Late Rally to beat Celtics
Anthony Davis recorded 27 points and 14 rebounds in his return from an injury, while LeBron James scored 21 as the Los Angeles Lakers survived a late rally to beat hosts Boston Celtics 96-95.
Kemba Walker missed what would have been a game-winning shot for the Celtics with 2.7 seconds left, and Daniel Theis whiffed on the follow up as the Lakers avoided blowing a seven-point lead with 1:40 remaining.
Montrezl Harrell added 16 points for Los Angeles, which snapped a two-game losing streak. Davis had missed the team’s matchup in Detroit two nights prior. Jayson Tatum had 30 points and Jaylen Brown scored 28 for Boston, which lost for the fifth time in its last seven games.
