James scores 33 points to lead Lakers past Pistons

LEBRON James recorded 33 points and nine assists to help the Los Angeles Lakers notch a 110-106 victory over the visiting Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.

Russell Westbrook had 25 points and nine assists and Anthony Davis contributed 24 points and 10 rebounds as the Lakers won for just the third time in the past eight games.

Jerami Grant scored 32 points but couldn’t prevent Detroit from losing its sixth consecutive game.

Frank Jackson added 17 points, Cade Cunningham registered 15 points and 11 rebounds, Trey Lyles scored 13 points and Hamidou Diallo tallied 10 for the Pistons.

The contest was a rematch of the game in Detroit seven days earlier when James and Detroit’s Isaiah Stewart were involved in a wild fracas that saw James suspended for one game and Stewart for two contests. There were no incidents this time.

Last week in Detroit, the episode began when James struck Stewart in the face with his left fist as the two battled for positioning at the free-throw line. An enraged Stewart attempted to get at James multiple times despite blood flowing out of a huge gash on his face.

Stewart had five points and six rebounds in 27 minutes on Sunday night.

Talen Horton-Tucker added 12 points for the Lakers, who made 50% of their field-goal attempts, including 9 of 32 from 3-point range.

Detroit shot 42.7% from the field and was 13 of 33 from behind the arc.

The Pistons recovered from a 19-point deficit to trail 108-102 on Grant’s basket with 1:21 remaining.

Grant made two free throws to cut the deficit to four with 16.7 seconds left. He later scored on a dunk with 2.1 seconds to play to pull Detroit within 109-106 before Horton-Tucker split two free throws with 0.9 seconds left to put the game away.

Earlier, Grant’s dunk tied the score at 56 with 9:12 left in the third quarter before the Lakers made seven straight shots during a 16-0 burst.

James scored seven points during the run, which was completed by Davis’ dunk with 5:24 left in the period.

Horton-Tucker drained a 3-pointer to increase the advantage to 77-58 with 3:43 remaining but Detroit narrowed its deficit to 83-70 entering the final stanza.

The Pistons made a spirited run and pulled within 99-93 on Jackson’s basket with 4:38 left.

James (15), Westbrook (14) and Davis (13) combined for 42 first-half points as the Lakers led 51-48 at the break. — Reuters
