The Los Angeles Lakers have been waiting for a sense of achievement for four games – against Utah it was a clear defeat. The Celtics are also currently having a negative run.
Disappointment is written on your face: LeBron James from the Los Angeles Lakers.
No Schröder, no victory: Without Dennis Schröder, the bankruptcy series of the Lakers in the NBA continues. In the absence of the German national player, the champions around superstar LeBron James lost at the Utah Jazz with 89: 114 and received the fourth defeat in a row in the fourth game without Schröder.
The best throwers in Jazz, who lead the Western Conference with 26: 6 wins, were Jordan Clarkson and Rudy Gobert with 18 points each, while James had the most points with 19 among the weakened Lakers.
In addition to Schröder, who was included in the NBA’s corona protocol a good week ago and is now about to return to the court, the Californians (22:11 wins) were still missing Anthony Davis (Achilles tendon injury). Davis will also miss the 70th Allstar Games on March 7th in Atlanta. He will be replaced by Devin Booker from the Phoenix Suns, announced NBA boss Adam Silver.
Boston loses in Atlanta
Schröder’s national team colleague Daniel Theis also suffered a defeat with his Boston Celtics. The 112: 127 at the Atlanta Hawks was the third lost game in a row for the 17-time title holder, Theis could not score in his eleven minutes of playing time.
