Lakers Win Ninth Straight

Grace Higgins | November 28th, 2019

With a 114-110 win against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Los Angeles Lakers improved to a league best 16-2 record. In the same game, LeBron James became the youngest player to surpass 33,000 career points.

In his return to New Orleans, Anthony Davis became the first player to score at least 40 points in the first matchup against a former team. Davis scored 41 points, including free throws at the end to ice the game for the Lakers, and grabbed nine rebounds. Throughout the entire game, Davis was booed by the home crowd.

Davis visited the Pelicans locker room after the game to talk with some of his former teammates and coaches. One of the players he visited was Zion Williamson, who is currently sidelined and hasn’t made his regular season Pelicans debut yet. Davis expressed how grateful he was for his current and former situations as an NBA player.

James took a backseat, scoring 29 points, dished 11 assists and grabbed five rebounds, while becoming the youngest and fourth player ever to score 33,000 career points. The list includes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928), Kobe Bryant (33,643), and now James (33,008). For someone who media members and fans say isn’t a phenomenal scorer, James can become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer in roughly two and a half seasons if he continues at this pace.

As is every season with James, the Lakers are in a championship-or-bust mindset this season. There is no super team in the league, with the championship method of having a dynamic duo is back in the league. And with that, the Lakers have arguably the best duo in the league. Both James and Davis are a lock to be top-10 players in the league, no matter who you ask.
