Lakers Chain Their 10th Victory After Crushing Wizards

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Before resting in the fourth quarter, Anthony Davis had 26 points and 13 rebounds and LeBron James totaled 23 units and 11 assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers chained their 10th victory on Friday by rolling 125-103 to the Wizards of Washington.

Quinn Cook scored 17 goals and JaVale McGee finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who won 17 of 18 and placed at the top of the NBA standings. Los Angeles has a 14-1 record in November, its highest number of wins in a month since March 2000.

The accelerated Wizards have one of the worst defenses in the league this season and the Lakers' dynamic attack was too much for them.


The Lakers beat the Wizards 84-36 in a span of 24 minutes from the middle of the first quarter until a basket of James left them 88-51 ahead. At that time, Los Angeles had partial 17-0 and 18-0, showing a remarkable chemistry in their game on just the 19th date in a team with a totally renewed mentality.

Bradley Beal finished with 18 points and nine assists for the Wizards, who conceded three losses in their last four commitments.
