After blowing a 13-point lead late in the fourth quarter versus the Boston Celtics and losing in overtime on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Lakers were in great need of a win when they took on the Denver Nuggets on Friday.
Their sense of urgency grew even more when Anthony Davis didn’t make it onto the floor for the start of the second half and was ruled out due to a right foot injury.
But the Lakers responded with a team effort to blow out the flat-footed Nuggets. It was the type of night where L.A. loaded up on what it does best by getting 28 fast-break points and 64 points in the paint while forcing 19 turnovers.
Check out the top highlights and plays from the Lakers’ 126-108 victory on Friday.
