Davis Leads Way in Lakers’ Seventh Straight Win, James Out
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Anthony Davis had 23 points and six rebounds in three quarters of work and the Los Angeles Lakers won their seventh straight game and NBA-record 18th in a row on the road against the Western Conference, beating the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors 116-86 without LeBron James. Rajon Rondo started in place of James and contributed 12 points and six assists as Los Angeles turned it into a rout with a 40-17 third quarter. James sat out because of recurring soreness in his troublesome left groin. Rookie Eric Paschall scored 23 points for his 11th 20-point game in the Warriors’ eighth straight loss.
