Washington, D.C–

Usually when you have a 14 point and with 1:44 remaining and you are the Lakers is good night for an opponent, well that was until the Wizards had other plans, so much, they had to bring LeBron and AD back into the game with 17.1 seconds remaining in the game when the Wizards were able to cut the lead to five at 125-120.

Anthony Davis set the tone in this game from the very start with his 19 first quarter points, finishing with 35 points and 18 rebounds.

With a turnover in the final seconds for the Wizards it wasn’t enough to stop the Lakers from grabbing their 8th victory in their last nine games.

LeBron James had 25 points and nine assists, and Rui Hachimura scored 19 points for the Lakers against his former team. Davis was 10 of 17 from the field and made 15 free throws without a miss.

Jordan Poole had one more shot at keeping the Wizards with a chance to take the game to overtime, but the shot was blocked by who other than Anthony Davis.

With just a little over a week remaining, the Wizards are a loss shy of matching the franchise record of 63.

After the game Lakers Head Coach Darvin Ham was asked about the let down from his bench players.

“I hate the term garbage time,” Ham said. “You’re playing in the NBA. There’s only so many spots, and you get a chance to play, even if it’s the last 50 seconds, go hard. Go hard or you stay home, pretty much.”

Washington ends this current week home stand on Friday night against Portland.
