Lakers 3-0 Week NSS Report!! 4 Straight Wins, Playoff Clinched!!
Lakers beat 76ers, Bucks and Clippers in the same week, all for the 1st time this season. Lakers’ this week also were the 1st team to clinch in the West. What a week full of nonsense for the Lakers’ who put a silence to all the haters and doubters and fully stepped up to the challenge. The Laker’s are now 49-13 with 20 games left to their season, let’s review some Laker’s Nonsense.
Lakers Win 120-107 Vs 76ers, Anthony Davis 37 Pts, 13 Reb
The Lakers’ spoiled a big night by Glenn Robinson III, who put up 25 pts from the bench. Even short handed they 76ers put up a fight but couldn’t get over a Laker’s team that was on a mission to split the season series. Unfortunately for the 76ers was a downhill trip while in LA losing to both Clippers and Lakers. 76ers are fighting a hard battle trying to get back into the top 4 in the East, but missing Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons is hard to overcome.
Lakers Win 113-103 Vs Bucks, Top of the East not enough for LeBron’s 37 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast
If it seems like every night LeBron is flirting with a triple double is because he is. For a game that had very high expectations from both sides it did not disappoint. The difference in this game was the big 3rd quarter by the Lakers. Davis had a consecutive game with 30 pts, got himself 9 Reb and 2 blocks. The Lakers split the season series vs the Bucks, who are the favorite to win the East.
Maybe to soon or maybe just nonsense but some concern (or whispers) could be forming on the side of the Bucks who had a tough loss vs the Miami Heat. The Bucks will also be without Giannis Antetokounmpo for the next 2 games at the Suns (Sunday) and Nuggets (Monday March 9t ) due to minor joint capsule sprain his left knee.
Lakers Win vs Clippers 112-103, Davis 3rd game consecutive game with at least 30 Pts
Lakers’ win 4th straight game by beating the Clippers who were leading the series 2-0 and were undefeated when all their starters play. This was the most watched game out of all 3 games due to that the Clippers are the Lakers’ biggest threat in the West. The Clippers stars were hot with Leonard 27 Pts, Paul George 31 Pts and Montrezl Harrell, off the bench, with 20 Pts, but it was the Lakers defense that came up big when they needed the most.
Lakers Winning Factors
- Consistency of Stars: Lebron James & Anthony Davis
- Bench Production: Kyle Kuzma, Dwight Howard, Alex Caruso and The Lakers’ bench mob are consistently contributing to the game
- LeBron’s Minutes. LeBron led in minutes played vs Bucks with 37 Mins and Clippers with 35 mins, adding 34 Mins against the Sixers. The Concern is LeBron already in playoff mode and just getting comfortable with playing that many minutes or could he hit a wall at some point in the playoffs and may burn himself out at the most inconvenient of times.
Week Grade – A+
