The Los Angeles Lakers got their three-game losing streak snapped and this is their first loss during this NBA Eastern Conference road trip. It was a close fight as the Sixers suppressed the late Lakers’ charge in the fourth quarter. LeBron James has been the favorite to win this season’s MVP and he gave his team 34 points, six rebounds, and six assists. Anthony Davis tallied 23 points and eight rebounds while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope chipped in with 16. Alex Caruso had 10 points off the bench but the Lakers’ bad start caused the late-game cram to avoid the loss.
