Right at the half-time whistle on the Christmas clash between Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, Anthony Davis was involved in a rather funny incident.
Going for a buzzer hooter, Davis shot the basketball towards the rim and fell off balance. Apparently, it turned out to be a funny scene as Davis fell on Kevin Hart, and Hart was shouting on Davis to get off him. It was however, all on the lighter side as Hart was laughing at Davis.
The game resumed in the second half, and it was the Clippers that emerged victorious in the end. The game was a tight one and the teams were neck to neck until the last few moments.
Anthony Davis recorded 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the field. LeBron James, who came into the game after a short injury layoff, did not look at his menacing best, but almost had a triple double. LeBron registered 23 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds.
The Clippers weren’t always leading in the game, but managed to come back and win the game eventually. It was Kawhi Leonard led the game for the Clippers with a game-high 35 points. He also took down 12 rebounds and assisted five times.
“It was one game out of the season,” Leonard said after the game. “Whoever won this game was not going to win the LA Championship or anything.
“Both teams have got their eyes on the biggest prize.”
After accumulating 24 wins in their first 27 games, Lakers have now lost their last four games. Although their impressive performances before the streak still keeps them on top of the Western Conference, they have had a few weaknesses exposed. Frank Vogel will want to work on it and get back to winning ways soon.
