Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL’s role players, many of whom are used to finding spots to shoot in open areas created by LeBron, really struggled to score tonight.
Monk went 3 for 13, Johnson 1 for 6, Bradley 1 for 4 and the entire bench just 8 for 29 (27.6%). – 10:29 PM

Anthony Davis (31 points, 12 rebounds, 4 blocks) was absolutely sensational in a match-up with Joel Embiid. The Lakers, as a whole, were underwhelming without LeBron James. The Lakers are again a game under .500. Charlotte tomorrow night. – 9:47 PM

FINAL: Sixers 105, Lakers 87. Embiid with 26-9-7. Harris with 23-5-4. Maxey with 14-7-9. Lakers got 31 and 12 from AD with LeBron out but shot just 6-of-29 from 3-point land.

Another swat on Embiid from Davis. This is the AD that can be potentially transformative for the Lakers. Transformative enough? Who knows? But he’s gotta be this guy for the Lakers to turn it around and really threaten for a title. BK – 9:04 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
It’s been a familiar feeling since LeBron’s heater, but watching Anthony Davis block Embiid while staying with him on a drive, seeing his 29-point, 10-rebound stat line midway through the third — it’s going to be a shame if/when the Lakers can’t pull it out with his effort. – 9:03 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
This AD performance, on both ends, has been incredible.
(It also doesn’t help that Korkmaz isn’t in the same zip code chasing Monk around these screens. Keeps putting Embiid in a tough spot.) – 9:03 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Davis just swatted Embiid for a second time tonight, as he continues to look terrific individually (29 points, 10 boards, 3 blocks in 26 minutes).
LAL haven’t had a chance to pair this version of AD with LeBron yet this season. – 9:03 PM

An impressive performance from Anthony Davis has come mostly with Joel Embiid on him. Embiid’s been dominating the NBA for the last month and change (35 ppg), but Davis is 12 for 16 for 27 points with 7 boards and 2 blocks.
Embiid has 13, 6 and 5, but his Sixers lead 67-58. – 8:56 PM

Halftime: Sixers 54, Lakers 48. AD with 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting. Embid with 13-6-4. Harris with 11-3-3. Sixers have forced 11 LA turnovers but have turned those into just four points, primarily because they also have eight giveaways. – 8:32 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Unbelievable first half from Anthony Davis, who Embiid has played well against in his career: 23 points on 10-13 shooting. A nice mix of easy ones from his teammates but also a few tough, well-contested mid-rangers.
Sixers still lead the LeBron-less Lakers at halftime, 54-48. – 8:32 PM

AD (23 points, 5 boards, 2 blocks) out-dueled Joel Embiid (13 points, 6 boards) in the first half, hitting 10 of 13 FG’s, including 7 for 7 in the paint, plus 3 jump shots.
But Philly was +15 from three, and holds a 54-48 lead. – 8:31 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
HALFTIME: Sixers 54, Lakers 48
Anthony Davis IS the Lakers’ offense tonight. He’s got a game-high 23 points despite a dinged up wrist against current MVP favorite Joel Embiid. But the Lakers haven’t helped him out much on that end. No one else has more than 7. – 8:31 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
AD putting on a show. Up to 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting. And would probably have more if he hadn’t needed to leave in the first to have that wrist attended to. He’s keeping the Lakers in this. – 8:30 PM

LeBron James is averaging 29.1 points per game, easily the most in NBA history by a player in his 19th season or later.
He could go scoreless in 10 straight games and still be averaging more points than anyone ever in Year 19 or later. – 6:08 PM

Vogel says that the Lakers haven’t liked their small lineups WITHOUT LeBron — with Melo, Ariza or Johnson as the only big. Isn’t revealing his starting lineup, but acknowledges Dwight is in the mix tonight. – 6:07 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Anthony Davis will play tonight, his second game back from his knee injury.
Prior to tonight’s game, LeBron and AD had played only 25 of the last 98 games together. – 6:06 PM

#Lakers coach Frank Vogel: ‘I do expect to see Dwight (Howard) in there some (at backup center) with LeBron out.’ #Sixers6:06 PM
