Here are the game highlights of the match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers which was scheduled on July 31, 2020 (PHI time).
The National Basketball Association is finally back after over four months in hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and for its main game after the resumption, it didn’t fail its fans as the game ended in a dramatic finish.
LeBron James came to the rescue in the final seconds of the fourth quarter to keep his Lakers team ahead.
James was evidently rusty in his first outing inside the NBA bubble in Orlando yet when his squad needed his basketball supremacy he delivers.
The three-time NBA champ needed to switch sneakers during the match just to get his rhythm in the game.
James finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds while Anthony Davis paced LA Lakers with his 34 points and eight boards, half of his production came from the free-throw line.
Paul George led the Clippers with his 30 markers and five rebounds who almost became the hero only if he was able to convert his contested three-pointer at the last moment of the match. Yet, his long-shot hit the backboard as the final buzzer has sounded.
Kawhi Leonard added 28 points for coach Doc Rivers team while Patrick Beverly chipped in with 12 points.
