The Lakers’ win came from a well-rounded offensive effort, spearheaded by Anthony Davis, who had a double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds. With at least 10 rebounds in each of his previous three games, Davis has been on a roll lately. D’Angelo Russell, who finished with 24 points and five assists while going 6 for 8 from outside the arc, also provided assistance to the team.
