WATCH: LeBron James & Anthony Davis’ Combination for an Alley-oop as Lakers go Past Jazz

LeBron James

It was LeBron James who affected the game significantly as Los Angeles Lakers beat Uttah Jazz on Friday.

Just before half time, it was a one-point game, when the “king” James was coming in after a short break. Just over two minutes into the fourth quarter, the Lakers were 18 points ahead of Jazz.

And it was not just about LeBron James, but Anthony Davis was also seen powering himself through the Jazz defense and was defensively sound when it was their turn to defend.

Talking before the match, Lakers coach had talked about posting up a little more. “The first positive is our post offense is a problem for other teams,” Vogel had said.

And it was visible in the way Davis was playing.

What was more noteworthy in the game was the combination play between LeBron James and Anthony Davis. There was a moment in the third quarter when James had the ball near the centre. Davis did a little screen and roll to get the ball from LeBron mid-air and put in the basket to execute a two-handed alley-oop.

The game finished 95-86 in favour of the Lakers handing them their first victory of the season. Anthony Davis finished the game with 21 points, two assists and seven rebounds, while James finished with a further impressive 32 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.

In the end, the tweaks at half time proved to be the be the turnaround for the Lakers. After James came on just before half-time, Alex Caruso made way in the third quarter, and Davis showed his skill.
