Lakers end losing streak against 76ers with victory, Russell sets record

Posted : 23 March 2024

In a hard-fought battle, the Los Angeles Lakers secured a crucial 101-94 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, breaking a seven-game losing streak against their opponents. Anthony Davis dominated with an impressive performance, tallying 23 points and a remarkable 19 rebounds, while LeBron James contributed 20 points, eight rebounds, and six assists to seal the win. Despite a gritty effort by Philadelphia, James and Davis showcased their resilience, particularly in the fourth quarter, propelling the Lakers to success despite committing 21 turnovers.


D'Angelo Russell made history by setting the Lakers' single-season record for 3-pointers, surpassing Nick Van Exel's previous record with his 184th 3-pointer of the season. Russell, expressing gratitude for the achievement, emphasized his desire to continue pushing boundaries. His contribution of 14 points, including four 3-pointers, proved crucial in securing the Lakers' seventh win in 11 games, following a three-day break since their last victory over Atlanta.


Despite offensive challenges and physical defense from the Sixers, the Lakers showcased resilience, with James' critical 3-pointer late in the game sealing their victory. However, Philadelphia coach Nick Nurse commended his team's effort, acknowledging their execution of the game plan despite struggling to generate sufficient offense. With Joel Embiid sidelined, Tyrese Maxey stepped up, scoring 22 of his 27 points in the second half, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Lakers' determined effort.


Looking ahead, the Lakers will face the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night, aiming to build on their recent success. Meanwhile, the 76ers will take on the LA Clippers, seeking to bounce back from their defeat and improve their performance on their West Coast road trip.
