The Los Angeles Lakers returned to the court on Friday night to host the Philadelphia 76ers, who were without reigning NBA MVP Joel Embiid.

At this point in the season, every game is crucial for the Lakers, and while it wasn’t pretty, they were able to come away with a 101-94 victory over the 76ers.

D’Angelo Russell made history Friday night, passing Nick Van Exel to become the leader for most threes in a single Lakers season. He ended the game with 14 points, going 4-10 from three.

Anthony Davis scored 23 points with 19 rebounds, four blocks, and four assists. LeBron James had a rough start with four first-half turnovers for L.A. He ended the game with 20 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and a block.

Spencer Dinwiddie had his best game as a Laker with solid defense and 11 points off the bench. Rui Hachimura started the game red hot and finished with 14 points.

 

Lakers vs 76ers First Quarter:

After a slow start for both teams, the shots started falling, and Rui Hachimura was cooking for L.A. He was the Lakers‘ leading scorer, and his teammates continually tried to find him. Hachimura got the Lakers off to an excellent start with the first four points of the game and then a triple to put them up 7-3.

Anthony Davis got going inside from there, although the 76ers did some work on the offensive glass to get back in the game.

Midway through the first quarter, Russell buried back-to-back triples, the first of which broke a tie with Nick Van Exel for the franchise’s all-time 3-point record. At the end of a defensive-heavy first quarter, though, the Lakers held a slim 24-23 lead.

LeBron James and Jaxson Hayes put their chemistry on display to begin the second when the former found the latter for a dunk, and then the exact opposite happened.

Both offenses continued to struggle, though, playing carelessly with the ball. Tobias Harris eventually got going with five straight points to tie the game at 43.

The half ended with James and Kelly Oubre Jr. exchanging monster dunks, and the 76ers took a slim 52-50 lead into the locker room.

 

Lakers vs 76ers 3rd Quarter:

After not making one from the field in the first half, Austin Reaves connected from deep on his first attempt in the third quarter. The Lakers continued to play sloppy, though, and Mo Bamba connected from deep to give the 76ers a six-point lead.

The Lakers started to show after that, with Spencer Dinwiddie and Reaves making back-to-back triples. Dinwiddie hit another as he had his best offensive game as a Laker.

With under six minutes left in the quarter, the Lakers still couldn’t establish any kind of offensive rhythm. The Sixers perfectly contested all their shots. L.A. suddenly found some juice, and the deficit was cut to one with Austin Reaves hitting a much-needed 3-pointer.

At the end of the third quarter, though, the 76ers still held a 76-75 lead.

 

Lakers vs 76ers 4th Quarter:

Davis scored inside to begin the fourth as the Lakers regained the lead for the first time in the second half. It was a slugfest from there, as both teams were playing physically, and the refs allowed it.

Eventually, the Lakers started to gain some separation with back-to-back buckets by James and Davis to put them up five. Davis then had a three-point play, and James buried a triple, closing the game out without any issues.

A surge by the Lakers, with a clutch 3-pointer by James, pushed their lead to nine, which was the biggest of the game. After a monster block by Davis, Bamba made a wild three-pointer to cut the deficit to six. The Sixers did pull to within five, and Tyrese Maxey stole the ball to cause the smallest amount of panic but missed a three, and the Lakers took the 101-94 win.

 

The Los Angeles Lakers will return home to take on the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, March 24th, at 7:00 pm PST. Thank you for visiting FranchiseSportsMedia.com for your Las Vegas Sports news.
