LeBron James had 26 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists while Anthony Davis also had 26 points while also giving 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals, and three blocks. Dennis Shroeder had 12 points but this team needs other players to pick it up and help their two superstars to avoid close games like that.
