The Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 133-96 on Saturday night. Bones Hyland scored a career-high 27 points, Nikola Jokic added 17 points, 13 assists, and 12 rebounds for the Nuggets.
133-96 – it’s LeBron James and the Lakers’ largest margin of defeat since Feb. 5, 2019 (a 42-point loss to Indiana). The Lakers points allowed, last 5 games: 114, 118, 127, 125, 133 – 123.4 PPG.
Following the game, the Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson took to Twitter to share his thoughts: “After being blown out by the Nuggets 133-96, we as Lakers fans can accept being outplayed but we deserve more than a lack of effort and no sense of urgency. Owner Jeanie Buss, you deserve better.”
