This is the ninth game LeBron James has missed this season and it’s already the third since November 25 of last year. In particular, it comes at a time when the Los Angeles Lakers are without the service of Anthony Davis due to injury.
Los Angeles Lakers in victory over Miami
Since returning on November 25, LeBron has averaged 31.2 points along with a 53.8% pitch, 7.9 rebounds and 6.5 assists. More specifically, since Davis’s absence, LeBron has done all he can to keep the Los Angeles Lakers afloat. In 8 matches, he averaged 35.1 points.
At home, the Los Angeles Lakers faced many difficulties before a Miami Heat was on the rise with a two-match winning streak. Not only were the top three scorers absent, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Lonnie Walker, the Lakers were also without the service of a key player, Troy Brown Jr., because of a left quadriceps strain.
Overcoming the lack of personnel, the remaining Lakers players showed strong determination to beat a not easy Miami Heat with a score of 102-109.
Dennis Schroder became the brightest star of the Los Angeles Lakers with 32 points scored. In addition, the player born in 1993 also became an important defensive link when he was able to neutralize the attacks of the Miami Heat.
