LeBron James Triple Double Help the Lakers End 2 – Game Losing Skid

NBA – Before the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. 

LeBron James was reported that he might miss his first game as a Laker due to sudden illness? James actually missed their practice prior to the game and it will be a game time decision if he could play the game or not? 

But the Lakers superstar didn’t stop from playing despite being under the weather as he along with the returning Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo are all present to play the game against the Pelicans except for Javale McGee who is now missing his 3rd straight game.

LeBron leads the Lakers after dropping his 3rd triple double this season after scoring 22 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assist ending the Lakers 2 – game losing skid and now back into the winning column to stay at the 4th spot in the Western Conference standings with 19 wins and 13 losses.

Brandon Ingram, who missed 6 straight games due to ankle injury added 18 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assist while the returning Rondo also added 8 points, 9 assist and 4 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Lakers Center Ivica Zubac scored his career high 16 points and 11 rebounds as a starting five for the Lakers in the absence of Javele McGee.

For the losing team New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis, who is also suffering from illness prior to the game and was also in a game time decision to play the game lead the Pelicans in scoring with 30 points and 20 monsters rebounds but not enough to stop the King and the Lakers at Staples Center.

Next game the Lakers will be hosting the Memphis Grizzlies while the Pelicans will face the Sacramento Kings on their next assignment.
