I still can’t be sure that it’s not the hallucinations caused by sleep deprivation-it’s been a long week-the lineup is highlighted by Jared Dudley, Talen Horton Tucker and Montrez Harrell, who helped the Lakers Recovered from the recent defeat. The Spurs beat the Bulls 117-115 on Friday night.
Vogel burned Dudley for the first time without garbage in the third quarter. It was like throwing pasta on the wall to see if he was cooking. Dilemma. Dudley may move like a blogger in a pick-up game, but his infectious power and defensive strength will scatter the ball when diving, spin like a madman and butter the offense, which also provides the Lakers at night The electricity needed often appears to lack fanaticism. His frame score is 0 points, 1
The situation earlier in the evening did not look good. With Anthony Davis and Kentavit Caldwell-Pope out of the game due to injuries, Davis’s Lakers defense on Thursday looked more chaotic than ever, leaving Bulls guard Zach La Wen dropped 17 points in the first quarter.
However, the Lakers stayed in the game mainly because of the offensive talents of LeBron James (28 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists) and Dennis Schroeder (16 points, 7 assists). Lead at halftime. In the second half they got a push from Wesley Matthews, who exploded with 14 points in the second half when James looked for him again and again.
But the Bulls will not disappear. Dudley’s promotion helped, mainly because it awakened the rest of the team. Harrell eventually stayed online, bombarding the Bulls with a series of trash talk and isolation barrels, eventually scoring 17 points and 14 rebounds. He and other members of the entire team were helped by some key shots and fouls from Schroeder. These barrels provided the Lakers with enough breathing space, almost collapsed the Lakers, and allowed the Bulls to steal James’ injury. This one. Fortunately, LaVine (38 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds) finally calmed down and missed a jumper, while Chicago has only a few seconds left. The Lakers entered the lightning-quick Schroder, then made free throws and survived.
Purple and Gold will take a vacation on Saturday and then return to the court on Sunday, becoming the first of two road games for the Houston Rockets. Although they didn’t score any style, this victory will make the team record 7 wins and 3 losses, which is the best in the Western Conference.
It’s not very beautiful, but victory is victory because the team continues to grow slowly and tries to improve its record on a softer schedule by any means necessary.
