Lakers Finally Breaks Their Losing Streak Against Denver Nuggets


The Denver Nuggets (4-3) were defeated by the Los Angeles Lakers (1-5) on Sunday night, thanks to outstanding efforts from LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook.
With six rebounds and eight assists in addition to his game-high 26 points on 10-for-22 shooting from the field, James, 37, led all scorers.
The Lakers shot a combined 13 for 30 from beyond the arc, and he connected on two of his five efforts. In a physical struggle, Davis, 29, battled through the pain to score 23 points and grab 15 rebounds.
Jokic also finished with 23 points and one fewer board than AD, but he only made one of his five outside shots. The last winless team of the season is now 1-5 as Darvin Ham celebrated his first NBA victory as a franchise head coach. Darvin Ham, an NBA champion from his tenure as a coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, hopes to imprint that DNA in the Purple & Gold locker room.
For the second straight game, Westbrook, 33, came off the bench. He finished the game with 18 points on 6-for-12 shooting from the field, eight rebounds, and eight assists.
They made 48 percent of their shots against the Nuggets, which was a positive development before the New Orleans Pelicans’ arrival on Wednesday.
The Brooklyn Nets (1-5) and Kevin Durant are both having a difficult start to the 2022 NBA season.
The Golden State Warriors (3-4) lost to the Detroit Pistons (2-5) on Sunday, appearing to still be recovering from their championship run from the previous year.
While Klay Thompson was out (resting), Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole joined hands for 62 points, but it wasn’t enough. The LeBron-Curry-KD era appears to be slowly coming to an end as clubs with NBA veterans like the Lakers, Nets, Warriors, and others have had a rough start to the year.
