The Los Angeles Lakers recorded their second win in a row by defeating the San Antonio Spurs on the road in overtime (125-121).
Four players finished the game in double digits for the winners with Anthony Davis (35 points) and Russell Westbrook (33 points) leading the charge in absence of LeBron James.
According to James Worthy, who won three NBA championships as a Laker, it was a good win even though it was a sloppy game.
“[The Lakers] got the win. That’s where I want to start. It was a good win, believe it or not,” Worthy said on Spectrum SportsNet. “San Antonio, a young team not afraid to play. The Lakers come to town [the Spurs] are trying to show they can compete and they did.
“I thought the Lakers were scrappy when they needed to be. It was a sloppy game. They had the lead, they gave up some offensive rebounds.
“I thought that Westbrook and AD, particularly AD on the offensive boards at the end, kind of captured the game. You got to give Westbrook and AD a lot of props for what they did. It was sloppy but we’ll get the win in overtime.”
