On the other hand, the Lakers struggled in the last game, shooting only 40 percent from the field and missing 29 of their 39 three-point attempts. Despite Anthony Davis’ 31 points and 19 rebounds, LeBron James’ 15 points on 17 field goal attempts was not enough to secure a victory.

The stage is set for an exciting matchup between two teams fighting to stay alive in the playoffs.
