Lakers Comeback from 19-Point Deficit, Defeat Bucks in Double OT Thriller without LeBron James

The Los Angeles Lakers pulled off an impressive double-overtime victory against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday without LeBron James. Anthony Davis and Austin Reaves led the team to a 128-124 win, overcoming a 19-point deficit in the fourth quarter to force overtime. Davis made a crucial stop on a potential game-winner from Damian Lillard to secure the victory, improving the Lakers’ record to 6-4 this season without James.

Davis had a stellar performance, recording 34 points, 23 rebounds, four blocks, two steals, and two assists in a career-high 52 minutes of play. Reaves also had a remarkable game with a triple-double, contributing 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. Both players played pivotal roles in leading the Lakers to victory. D’Angelo Russell also chipped in with 29 points and 12 assists.

In the fourth quarter, the trio of Davis, Reaves, and Russell scored all but two of the Lakers’ points, erasing a significant lead held by the Bucks. Despite Giannis Antetokounmpo’s struggles at the free-throw line ultimately hindering the Bucks as they lost control in overtime.

Lillard finished with 27 points on 9-of-29 shooting from the field and 3-of-14 from beyond the arc. The Lakers’ victory marked their second time this month that they had bested Milwaukee without James following March 8th where Russell scored an impressive total of forty four points for his team.

The win brought their record to forty (40) – thirty two (32) and kept them in ninth place in Western Conference standings just two games behind Phoenix Suns for eighth spot despite missing their star player LeBron James altogether. The Lakers have shown resilience and talent proving they can compete against top teams even when their star is absent
