The Los Angeles Lakers (9-6) showcased their dominance with a resounding 131-99 victory over the Utah Jazz (4-10), securing their third straight win and completing an undefeated run through group play in the NBA In-Season Tournament.

LeBron James, reaching another historic milestone, scored his 39,000th point early in the first quarter, adding to his impressive stat line of 17 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds. Anthony Davis contributed significantly with 26 points and 16 rebounds.

D’Angelo Russell added 20 points and eight assists, contributing to the Lakers’ commanding performance.

Austin Reaves and Christian Wood played pivotal roles, scoring 19 and 16 points, respectively, as the Lakers improved their home record to 7-1 this season.

The Jazz, struggling on the road with a 1-6 record, faced a formidable opponent in Los Angeles.

Despite injuries, including Cam Reddish leaving the game with groin soreness, the Lakers demonstrated their depth and resilience. With only nine available players, they overwhelmed the Jazz in the first half, securing a 23-point lead at halftime.

The undersized Jazz, led by John Collins with 15 points and Omer Yurtseven’s season-high 18, struggled to find their rhythm, shooting a dismal 33% from the field in the first half.
