Los Angeles Lakers reappeared against the Atlanta Hawks by 134-118. Lebron’s team became strong at home and won without worries. Read this and many basketball news on PlayOn99.

Malik Monk, with 7 triples, and LeBron James, with 17 points in the fourth quarter, this morning liquidated the Atlanta Hawks by 134-118 and allowed the Los Angeles Lakers to add their fourth consecutive victory to continue climbing positions in the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association.

Monk had 29 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists and James had a total of 32 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists.

Both were just the tip of a magical night for the Lakers in which Avery Bradley also stood out, 21 points and 6 rebounds, Talen Horton-Tucker with 21 points and 5 assists, Carmelo Anthony -17 points and 7 rebounds- and Russell Westbrook with 9 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists.

With Lebron officiating as a pivot and delivered in the last games to the faith of the “small ball” without Anthony Davis, the Lakers ran wonderfully on the counterattack -28 points after the 15 losses the Hawks- only lost 8 balls and shot with a good average: 49.5% in shots from the field and 41.5% in triples.

Atlanta Hawks, destroyed by their losses and their weak success in the triples (36.1%) and the free ones (70.4%), had as main references Trae Young -25 points, 9 rebounds and 14 assists- and John Collins with 21 points and 8 rebounds.

On the other hand, Avery Bradley knew before the game that the Lakers will guarantee his contract until the end of the season and he celebrated it with two triples as soon as the match began.

Atlanta Hawks began with doubts and little attitude while the Lakers came out to bite with several counterattacks by Monk to distance themselves quickly: 18-6 with 7.15 left on the counter.

However, the king of the first quarter was Bradley himself, overwhelming with 13 points -5 of 6 in shots- against an excessively spectator defense of the Hawks.

The Lakers were very clear that defending and running was the way to victory so James and Westbrook added fuel to the cauldron.

The Atlanta team got within 10 points with 5 minutes to go, but two triples by Anthony and Bradley and a furious basket by Lebron again on the counterattack closed a great victory for the Lakers.
