The Los Angeles Lakers won 112-111 in a game against the Indiana Pacers in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Gainbridge Field House in Indianapolis on the 3rd (hereinafter Korean time).
On this day, the Lakers were dragging the lead with Indiana, who had Tyrese Halliburton’s comeback from injury, giving them a double-digit lead of 84-96 until the third quarter.
However, the Lakers showed their back intentions and dominated the 4th quarter 28-15, creating a thrilling come-from-behind victory. At the center was Anthony Davis, who dominated the match.
Davis overcame the pressure of the opponent’s defense and scored a goal 35.3 seconds before the end of the fourth quarter, when the team was trailing 110-111, giving the team the lead.
Davis’ performance in the match did not end here. In the ensuing defense, he blocked Halliburton’s layup, which was aiming for a reversal, with a block shot, and defended the victory by holding the last rebound at the end of the game. Davis, who clearly showed his presence in the offense and defense, roared and enjoyed the joy of victory. 메이저놀이터
Davis, who finished the game with a double-double with 31 points and 14 rebounds, recorded double-doubles in 3 out of 4 games he played after returning from a foot injury that day, quickly getting back in shape.
The Lakers are currently 12th in the Western Conference with a record of 25-28. However, the ride between the mid-table teams is not large, so there is plenty of room for Davis to move up the standings once he regains his early season prowess.
Meanwhile, Davis was not named on the 2023 All-Star Reserve list announced by the NBA Secretariat that day. He was unable to step on the All-Star stage for two consecutive seasons following last season due to Utah’s Rauri Makkanen and Memphis’ Jaren Jackson Jr., but the thrilling come-from-behind victory on this day eased the sadness of being eliminated from the All-Star.
