Los Angeles Lakers prevailed (93-89) in a crucial matchup vs. the Denver Nuggets Monday as they put a stop to a three-game losing streak to improve to 37-28.

The Lakers’ legend Magic Johnson took to Twitter to praise the team for the important win claiming Anthony Davis was the main reason the LA franchise prevailed in the game.

Lakers won with LeBron James and Dennis Schröder being unavailable. James re-aggravated the ankle issue that kept him out for 20 games, while Schröder entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols.

Frank Vogel’s team hoping for a strong finish in the last seven games of the regular season as the Lakers are trying to avoid the play-in tournament situation.
