LeBron's clutch jumper sends Lakers past Celtics 114-112

Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers odds, picks and best bets Kemba Walker To Miss Lakers Games
Noah Ferguson | 26 February, 2020, 16:21

Lakers: James went down with the wind knocked out of him early in the fourth quarter when Daniel Theis ran into him under the basket. James finished with 29 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, while Davis tallied a team-high 32 points and 13 rebounds as the Lakers also showed good defensive strategy late in the game.

This season, Tatum has raised his scoring average by over seven points per game (15.7 to 22.9), and while his overall efficiency is down (likely due to volume), his shot selection has improved and he's getting to the free-throw line more frequently.

But with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all over him in the final moments, Tatum was unable to take a potential game-tying jumper, instead being called for an offensive foul to seal the Lakers' win.

Kemba Walker remains out for the Celtics with a knee injury.

"That's a great atmosphere", said Boston's Jaylen Brown, who scored 20 points.

The rematch was far more competitive than the teams' first meeting this season, with both taking small leads in the fourth quarter before the exciting finish.

Back in March of 2018, Simmons got the "Young King" tag. Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers gives them an opportunity to make a statement.

Stevens is right to an extent, and in fairness, asking new questions about Tatum is growing increasingly hard, even though we need to generate new soundbites for our stories.

While the Lakers' star duo did the bulk of the damage, they got plenty of help off the bench, with Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo chipping in on both sides of the ball.

The Lakers hung in with 16 points in the third from Davis after his quiet first half.

The Lakers are putting up 114.8 points per game on offense this season while shooting a league-best 48.8 percent from the field.

The victory gave the Lakers a season record of 43-12, which includes two victories since returning from the All-Star break. Enough of them for the right team with the right players, and you could end up with a title. I also don't think Boston matches up well with Davis. Walker did work in the weight room before the game. James stayed in the game after a timeout. On Sunday, NBA legend Bill Russell sat in the first row right where the sideline and baseline meet, while soon-to-be Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett sat courtside diagonal from him. Fans near courtside included Eddie Murphy, Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.

Elsewhere, the Chicago Bulls beat the visiting Washington Wizards 126-117, the Oklahoma Thunder won 131-103 at home to the San Antonio Spurs, the New Orleans Pelicans were victorious 115-101 at the Golden State Warriors, and the Portland Trail Blazers hung edged a 107-104 home win against the Detroit Pistons.
