LeBron James and Anthony Davis blackened the stat sheet in Detroit with 35 and 34 points respectively, but that’s Austin Reaves which validated the success of the Lakers in Michigan.
In the last twenty seconds of the match, “King James” penetrated and fixed three defenders to offer an open shot behind the arc at the back. This last, in spite of the return of Saddiq Bey, returns it and Los Angeles blows with five points in advance.
” I trust him “explains LeBron James at ESPN. “I like what he brings both offensively and defensively. He’s a very smart player. He plays hard and doesn’t make many mistakes. As soon as he is on the pitch, I have confidence in him. »
This is not the first time that the quadruple MVP has complimented his young teammate since, since last season, he has been accustomed to the fact. But it still produces its small effect at the rear.
“Twenty years from now, I’ll probably look back on those moments and say to myself, ‘One of the greatest players in history trusted me.’ It’s one-of-a-kind,” says Austin Reaves, who will end the game with 9 points at 3/5 at 3-pts.
