Not even the presence of “king” LeBron James could prevent the Los Angeles Lakers lose again, this time against the Boston Celtics by a score of 130-108; the angelina star had a good performance but the performance of her team still leaves much to be desired.
The party smiled at the beginning for the yellow team; Motivated by the return of their leader, they dominated the match by up to 11 points of difference, however everything got worse from the second period.
With legends Bill Russell and Paul Pierce in the stands, the Celtics first tied the game and then went up with a lead they never lost.
LeBron’s performance was the usual one: scored 23 points, had six rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in 32 minutes on the court.
After the meeting, he shared his appreciation of his performance and how it felt to play again after almost a month away due to injury (abdominal sprain).
“I felt good (…) I am excited. I felt good enough to be able to trust my body. “
The other star of the team, Anthony Davis, seconded LeBron with 31 points and 6 rebounds; For his part, Russell Westbrook was not well in scoring (12 points) or defending, as Boston’s offense smashed him.
The leader of the night for the Celtics was Jayson Tatum who had 37 points and 11 rebounds, followed by Marcus Smart (22 pts) and Dennis Schröder (21 pts) who were able to cover the low Jaylen Brown, who still has no return date for his hamstring problem.
The stars of the Lakers do not take off
In addition to the physical problems that LeBron James has experienced, who in October reached 36 years old and because of this he follows a strict diet to stay current, Los Angeles does not finish finding the key to find the performance that is expected of them.
Thinking of getting another NBA title, the board hired Russell Westbrook, Dwight Howard, Wayne Ellington, Kent Bazemore, Carmelo Anthony, Malik Monk, Rajon Rondo, DeAndre Jordan and Trevor Ariza to accompany LeBron to repeat the feat of 2020.
Despite this, the performance has not been stable and hover in the middle of the Western Conference table. In the six games that “The King” was not there, the Lakers won three games and lost another four.
The last loss against the Celtics It was more than painful for what the shock represents for the Angelina franchise: along with Boston they are the most winning teams in the NBA.
