Very rhythmic and offensive start to the match between these two teams, who seek as soon as possible to push the ball and accelerate the tempo Lakers and Wizards thus surrendered, until the “Purple & Gold” took the opportunity to take the helm, when the substitutes arrived. It must be said that the energy of Montrezl Harrell does them a lot of good, while Washington is confused since the exit of Bradley Beal Los Angeles therefore takes the lead after a quarter (33-23)

Reveling in the opposing defensive largesse, the Lakers see their lead gradually increasing In addition to reciting their ranges offensively and circulating the ball well, they can always count on the activity of Montrezl Harrell off the bench (50-36) The Wizards end up nibbling away, coming back to -10, thanks to Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal But the return of LeBron James, admittedly quiet so far, allows Los Angeles to regain its ease in front of Washington The defending champions continue to lead comfortably at the break (63-49)

Without Dennis Schröder, LeBron James is still enjoying his role as pure leader Because of his shifts, his teammates benefit from a lot of open shots, which they convert without problem Lakers stay the course, despite Wizards’ efforts to close the gap (75-60)Guided by Bradley Beal, the players of the capital, however, manage to return to a possession of the “Purple & Gold”, who have completely fallen asleep. James tidies up the California house a bit but, twelve minutes from time, Los Angeles isn’t leading so comfortably against Washington (86-80)

The match keeps balancing, as the clock ticks Coming into the fourth quarter, the Wizards managed to gain the edge, after trailing 17 points at one point Everything needs to be done again for the Lakers, who are trying to get the machine going, despite the momentum that has turned against them Scott Brooks’s men stay ahead as money-time approaches (99-94)

At -8, the defending champions rely on LeBron James and-one and shifts to return to possession (106-105) Washington is less sovereign in these last moments and finally sees Los Angeles equalize, one minute from the end, before Deni Avdija hits the mark at 3-points (114-111) Near the circle and then on a new and-one, James resets the counters, except he misses the potentially decisive bonus free throw, like Russell Westbrook before him (115-115) Bradley Beal then inherits the ball from the win but misses his attempt Extension!

In overtime, Russell Westbrook ideally launches the Wizards with two straight baskets LeBron James answers him but Bradley Beal takes over from his leader, also twice (123-119) James and Beal then trade a basket each, before Kentavious Caldwell-Pope plants a vital 3-point for his team, then two possessions behind (125-124)

Moment chosen by Russell Westbrook to score a decisive and-one! Problem, the bonus free throw is missing once again (127-124) Which leaves the Lakers with a ball to tie, which LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma ultimately fail to achieve, 3-point The Washington players win for the fifth time in a row, after a game that was badly off to them at the start of the second half.

As Russell Westbrook flirts with the triple-double (32 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists), Bradley Beal compiles 33 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists Opposite, LeBron James finished with 31 points, 9 rebounds and 13 assists on the clock, but he was unable to avoid the Angelenos their third defeat in a row, despite the good contribution of Montrezl Harrell (26 points, 9 rebounds) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (21 points)
