LeBron’s 32 Points Powers Lakers to Close Road Win

LeBron James had his outside shot going all night long and for a Los Angeles Lakers squad that shot only 16% on 3-pointers, they needed every last drop of LeBron’s outside shooting to outlast the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night, 101-96, to give the Lakers their 14th straight road win.

James had 32 points, including four 3-pointers, to go with 13 rebounds, seven assists and three blocks in the win. Anthony Davis played up to his co-star billing as well, scoring 27 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. As referenced above, the Lakers were 5 for 31 from the 3-point line, which is why James had one of his third-lowest assist total of the season.

James provided quite a few 3-pointers all game long, including a clutch one against Atlanta’s Alex Len.

The Hawks had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds when rookie Cam Reddish got an open look at a corner 3-pointer but it rimmed off.

With the win, the Lakers remain perfect away from Staples Center and won their 14th straight road game and their seventh straight win overall. The Lakers have two games remaining on their current road trip.
