What you need to know about the Lakers
Los Angeles was just a bucket shy of a victory on Friday and fell 111-110 to the Dallas Mavericks. A silver lining for Los Angeles was the play of center Anthony Davis, who posted a double-double with 26 points and 10 rebounds. D’Angelo Russell also had a double-double with 11 points and 11 assists but shot just 5-for-17 from the floor in the loss.
With LeBron James still out because of a foot injury, Davis and Russell are carrying the load at both ends for a Lakers squad that is trying to fight and claw its way into the NBA play-in tournament. Los Angeles is currently the 11th seed in the West, but is only a half-game behind the Jazz and Thunder to earn a play-in spot.
What you need to know about the Magic
Meanwhile, the Magic didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, but they still walked away with a 113-108 win. Point guard Markelle Fultz and center Wendell Carter Jr. were among the main playmakers for Orlando as the former had 28 points in addition to six boards and the latter dropped a double-double on 27 points and 12 boards.
Orlando is currently 13th in the East and has 4.5 games to make up on the Bulls to earn a spot in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament. However, with a talented young roster, the Magic have to be excited about where the franchise is heading long-term. Paolo Banchero is averaging 20.0 points and 6.6 rebounds per game this season and is the frontrunner to win NBA Rookie of the Year honors.
