The Lakers bottomed out against Atlanta – NBA



Atlanta Hawks came back against the Los Angeles Lakers and generated even more concern in the yellows who do not have LeBron James due to injury and now he must undergo treatment.

The Los Angeles Lakers are going through a part of the season in which they have no respite: victories of merit that are sporadic, like against the Brooklyn Nets, but blows and blows that remain like a Chinese drop.

The Atlanta Hawks, who are also going through a year in which their goals are not being met at all, pressed to advance the match 129-121 and reached their seventh consecutive victory.

The return of Anthony Davis in the Lakers to the courts has brought hope, but not an improvement in the classification: the power forward had 27 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.

In any case, the best on court for the Lakers was Malik Monk with a record of 33 points and 10 rebounds to complete a double-double.

Russell Westbrook also signed a double-double with 20 points and 12 assists, but he had situations that left much to be desired.

It will be a matter of waiting, they suppose in the franchise, although time passes, the train moves away and the news is not good at all.

The tour of the East of the country, which has resulted in four defeats in six games, is over.

LeBron James left the games early, without appearing against the Hawks, to begin a treatment in Los Angeles with which he hopes the continued swelling in his left knee will go down and, of course, keeps everyone restless in a thought apart from the wins or falls on the track.

Trae Young didn’t even have to have one of his wand-touched days to reach good numbers as the game’s leading scorer with a double-double: 36 points and 12 assists.

Josh Collins accompanied him from the game with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

The Hawks were far from dominating and found themselves in the Vogels’ web for most of the match.

The Los Angeles Lakers team started down in the first quarter, but went into halftime with a nine-point lead and stretched it to ten in the third quarter.

During the last quarter on court, the Atlanta Hawks came back with a 38-20 run and Magic Johnson’s past criticisms are even more understandable.

It’s even worse that they came from behind so blatantly in the last period and that the lack of concentration of some players left others unprotected.

Just as an example and without it being the only negative point of the match, Young’s triple that sentenced the match in the last minute came in thanks to Russell Westbrook staring at the clock too long and leaving enough space for Trae, a killer from the start. Perimeter that didn’t even have its best day.

Small details that make a mountain. The Lakers lacked finishing and what they took from Georgia, and from the tour in general, is a two-way goring.
