Lakers Big Win Against The Thunder


Dean Neal, Reporter

Yesterday 11/19 the Oklahoma City Thunder visited Staples Center to play the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have been playing very good basketball lately. The Lakers have a 12-2 record and are 1st in the Western Conference and the Thunder are 5-9 and 11th in the Western Conference. This ended up being a very entertaining game with the final score being 112-107. Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell- Pope ended up coming up clutch with a big three in the final 55.3 seconds of the game to put the Lakers up by five.

This was a very special game for LeBron James. Lebron ended the game with 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assist, in 37 minutes. This made LeBron the only player in NBA history to get a triple double against all 30 NBA teams.

Anthony Davis also had a big night for the Lakers, Davis had 34 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assist. He played 37 minutes in this game.

A injury also happened in this game to Lakers stretch four Kyle Kuzma. Kyle who has only played in 10 games this year has suffered another injury. Kuzma was elbowed by Thunder rookie forward Darius Bazley. Kuzma started bleeding badly from his eye. The team doesn’t know yet how long he will be out or what completely is wrong with him, but he is very lucky because it could’ve been very serious.

The Lakers hope to keep up their good play, while the Thunder hope to get on track to a win streak.
