Lakers come back from 19-point 4th-quarter hole, defeat Bucks in thrilling double-overtime victory without LeBron James

The Los Angeles Lakers clinched a hard-fought victory against the Milwaukee Bucks in double overtime, with Anthony Davis and Austin Reaves playing pivotal roles. Despite being without LeBron James, the team managed to come back from a 19-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win 128-124.

Davis made a game-saving block on Damian Lillard to force the first overtime, and he ultimately sealed the victory in the second overtime. He had an outstanding performance, scoring 34 points, grabbing 23 rebounds, blocking four shots, stealing two, and dishing out two assists in a career-high 52 minutes of play.

Reaves also played a crucial role by recording a triple-double with 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. D’Angelo Russell also contributed significantly with 29 points and 12 assists. Together, they were instrumental in mounting a comeback in the fourth quarter when the Bucks had a commanding lead.

The Lakers’ trio of Davis, Reaves, and Russell capitalized on missed opportunities by the Bucks despite some struggles by Giannis Antetokounmpo at the free-throw line. This victory marks their sixth win in ten games without James this season. With their fourth consecutive win, they now have a record of 40-32 and are ninth in the Western Conference, just two games behind eighth place Phoenix Suns.
