The Brooklyn Nets just kept trying and trying. Every time it looked like they had the Los Angeles Lakers beaten late in the game, Anthony Davis would nail a big shot to draw them closer. He had made two big three-pointers to even the game up at 100 apiece at one stage. But, the Nets figured out a way to win. With the score knotted up at 102-102, Spencer Dinwiddie, who had 23 total on the evening, scored the game-winning bucket with 28 seconds to go.
The contested fall away jumper made it 104-102, a score that would remain the same for a while. But it was not because of a lack of trying for the Lakers. Their final possession saw them get a number of looks. Somehow, LeBron James’ layup spiraled out of the hoop. They got the ball back, and after a scramble had an inbounds play. They found Davis open for three at the buzzer, but he missed, seeing the Nets to a big win and the Lakers to a rare loss. LeBron finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists on the night. Davis had 26 points, while the Nets’ Caris LeVert had 22.
