It’s been a bumpy season up to this point for the Lakers, but they’ve been on a roll lately.
Following a five-game losing streak, the Lakers have won four of their last five to improve to 20-19. They are coming off a win over the Kings in which LeBron James led the way with a game-high 31 points.
It was the 16th time James scored 30 or more points in a game this season, the most in the NBA. Hot on his heels, second is Hawks guard Trae Young with 15 30-point games.
Young had his highest-scoring game of the season earlier this week, coming off with 56 points in a loss to the Trail Blazers.
