Davis, James lead Lakers to best 10-game start since 2010
The Lakers (8-2) are off to their best 10-game start since 2010 and bounced back from a home loss to Toronto on Sunday. LeBron James added 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
Phoenix (6-4) trailed for a big chunk of the fourth quarter but pushed ahead 113-111 on Devin Booker’s fast-break layup with 3:29 left. The Lakers responded with three straight 3-pointers — one from James and two more from Kuzma — to lead 120-113 and put the game out of reach.
The Suns were led by Ricky Rubio and Booker, who both scored 21 points.
Young finished seven points shy of his career high set March 1 against Chicago last season. He was 13 of 21 from the field and finished 8 for 13 on 3-pointers.
Danilo Gallinari scored 14 points, Deonte Burton had 13 points and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 11 points and six rebounds for the Thunder, who have lost three of four and remained winless on the road.
Miami is 7-3, matching the third-best 10-game start in Heat history.
Luke Kennard was 0 for 7 in the first half, but recovered to score 22 for Detroit.
White missed his first five shots from the field and began the final period with just four points. But the rookie guard put on a dazzling show down the stretch.
Utah went ahead for good after Gobert scored on back-to-back possessions in the final 90 seconds.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Bogdan Bogdanovic had 25 points and 10 assists, Nemanja Bjelica added 19 points and 12 rebounds and Sacramento won its first game since losing leading scorer De’Aaron Fox to an ankle injury, beating slumping Portland.
Bjelica helped make up for the loss of Fox. He made eight of his 14 shots and set a season-high for rebounds in his first double-double of the season. Buddy Hield added 20 points.
