NBA: Los Angeles Lakers have to tremble for a long time

After three losses in a row, the Los Angeles Lakers have once again won and narrowly defeated the Detroit Pistons. A red-hot Bojan Bogdanovic kept the hosts in the game until the final minute, after LeBron James and Anthony Davis had led the Lakers.

Detroit Pistons (7-22) – Los Angeles Lakers (11-15) 117:124 (BOXSCORE)

The Pistons came back after the break with a 41-30 quarterback after being up to 14 points behind. But it shouldn’t be enough for the surprise. After Detroit had fought their way up to 2 points, Austin Reaves sank the decisive three point in the final minute on a pass from LeBron James (35, 14/24 FG). Together with Anthony Davis (34, 12/18 FG, 15 rebounds), he had previously led the Lakers, who otherwise received good production from Lonnie Walker IV (18, 7/10 FG). Russell Westbrook scraped past a double-double (11 and 9) while Dennis Schröder (5, 2/5 FG) was pale.

Bogdanovic caused a stir with the Pistons. He scored 25 of his 38 points in the third quarter, including 6 of 12 from long range (plus/minus +8). Otherwise, Jaden Ivey (16), Saddiq Bey (14, Alec Burks (11) and Marvin Bagley (10) achieved double digits. Despite Bogdanovic, Detroit (37.8 percent) could not keep up with the Lakers’ three-point quota (42.3 ), for which Reaves scored 3/5 and Walker 4/6, plus 12 points down in the zone (40-52).

James (ankle) and Davis (back) got fit in time for the Lakers, and they started again with a three-guard lineup around Schröder, Walker and Patrick Beverley. The start was successful, three of the first four threes found their target, Walker IV scored 8 of the first 13 Lakers points, which enabled an 8-point lead. Schröder and LeBron also scored from a distance, but Detroit fought its way into the game thanks to better shooting and was “only” 6 points behind after the first quarter.
