Davis scores 25 as short-handed Lakers defeat Nuggets 93-89

LOS ANGELES (AP) Anthony Davis came up with a huge game when the Los Angeles Lakers needed it the most.

Davis scored 25 points and had key plays on both ends of the floor in the final minute as the short-handed Lakers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 93-89 victory over the Denver Nuggets Monday night.

The Lakers - who had lost six of their last seven going into the game - won without two key pieces. LeBron James did not play in the second game of a back-to-back after he ankle soreness during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss Toronto. Dennis Schroder will be out more than a week after entering the NBA's health and safety protocol.
