LeBron Clutch In Return From Suspension, Suns And Warriors Still Scorching

Jonathan Grant | November 25th, 2021

LeBron James did not agree that his run-in with Isaiah Stewart should have warranted a suspension. He might have used that for fuel on Wednesday night during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 124-116 overtime win in Indiana over the Pacers. LeBron went for 39 points overall in the outing, making up for the lack of Anthony Davis’ presence in the lineup. More importantly, though, were the three big shots he made in the five-minute extra period. Two of those clutch shots came from beyond- and well beyond- the three-point line and they helped the Lakers get to 10-10 thus far. The Pacers were paced by Malcolm Brogdon’s 28 in a loss that dropped them to 8-12 on the season. Elsewhere, both of the scorching-hot Western Conference teams kept up their winning streaks.

LA Times

The Phoenix Suns took their 14th straight victory in Cleveland over the Cavaliers thanks to a 120-115 win that saw Devin Booker put up 35 while Chris Paul posted a double-double with 17 points and 11 assists to ward off a strong upset attempt by the young but plucky Cavs. Jarrett Allen was fantastic for the hosts, scoring 25 points on 9-10 shooting from the floor while also pulling down 11 rebounds in the loss. The only team with a better record than the Suns’ 15-3 one is that of the Golden State Warriors. A team that just so happens to be in the very same division. They also won on Wednesday evening, downing the Philadelphia 76ers at home by a score of 116-96. It was the Curry brothers’ show as Steph led the Warriors with 25 while Seth led the Sixers with 24. The fourth quarter was where the difference was made, as the Warriors defense only gave up 12 points in the entire period while scoring 30. They only allowed 35 in the entire second half, showing they can win games by doing more than just splashing home three-pointers. That makes it five wins consecutively for the Warriors and 12 from their last 13. Overall, they are 16-2 so far.
