The Philadelphia 76ers continue their streak, beating the Los Angeles Lakers 105-87 and earning their third straight victory in the National Basketball Association.

On the side of the Angelenos, who had just won in their last presentation against the Brooklyn Nets, they could not continue to triumph and stagnated in ninth position in the Western Conference.

Regarding the score, the teams shared two quarters each: the Sixers dominated the first thanks to a good start, they quickly took advantage with a 32-22 run and, despite the Lakers discounting in the second quarter, they left at long break up 54-48.

At the restart of the match, the superiority of the Philadelphia 76ers was decisive, they imposed a 34-20 run and stretched the difference in the third quarter.

The Los Angeles Lakers tried to come back, but it was not enough with a small advantage in the last quarter of 19-17 and they did not take advantage of the momentum that a victory against Brooklyn by James Harden and company could bring.

Joel Embiid was the figure of Philadelphia 76ers with 26 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 blocks and 1 recovery, although the highest record on the court was left to the Lakers: Anthony Davis signed a double-double 31 points, 12 rebounds , 4 blocks, 2 steals and an assist.

Russel Westbrook had a decent record with 20 points, while the 76ers’ Tobias Harris topped him with 23 points.

Without LeBron James on the track to rest between so many games, the Los Angeles Lakers felt the absence of their greatest reference, a player who always contributes more than 28 points and who, it is assumed, they missed when they lost by a difference of 18 units.

The Philadelphia 76ers got their third win in a row and surpassed the Milwaukee Bucks in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, even with two games less and the great possibility of accessing the Playoffs directly.
