Lakers overcome Davis injury scare

Sports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 28 Oct 2021

The Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absence of LeBron James and an injury scare to Anthony Davis to beat the San Antonio Spurs 125-121 in overtime as the Golden State Warriors extended their unbeaten start to the NBA season.

Davis finished with 35 points, 17 rebounds and four assists while Russell Westbrook added 33 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.

But the Lakers, already without James because of a sore ankle, were given a fright late in the fourth quarter when Davis crumpled to the court clutching his right knee. Davis later recovered to help the Lakers close out their overtime win.

In Oklahoma City, Stephen Curry scored 23 points and Andrew Wiggins added 2 as the Warriors rallied to beat the Thunder 106-98 for their fourth straight win.

And the New York Knicks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-99, with Kemba Walker scoring 19 points.
