103-114. Against the Magic, Schroder and Davis save the Lakers in the final stretch of the game

Orlando (USA), Apr 26 (EFE) .- German point guard Dennis Schroder scored 13 of 21 points in the fourth quarter, center Anthony Davis added 18 points and eight rebounds that allowed the Los Angeles Lakers to emerge in the fourth period of the game they won from visitors 103-114 to the Orlando Magic.

With an adverse 80-79 quarter after a slow third quarter, the Lakers offense came to life late to end their three-game losing streak.

The Lakers outscored Orlando 23-35 in the fourth period, improving to 19-12 in games played outside the Staples Center and 9-20 in those behind after three quarters.

Reserve center Montrezl Harrell scored 18 points for the Lakers, who had 54 percent shooting from the field and made 11 3-pointers.

The center Andre Drummond, who continued to start, contributed a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds with the Lakers, while the Spanish Marc Gasol had no minutes of play due to a decision by coach Frank Vogel.

Davis, who was playing his third game after missing 30 due to a strained right calf, made eight of 15 shots from the field in 31 minutes.

Vogel said before the game that Davis was no longer under a minute restriction.

Forward Chuma Okeke scored 18 points and converted a spectacular dunk on Drummond in the first quarter. Forward Gary Harris had 17 points for Orlado, who has lost six straight and 25 of the last 30 they have played.

Assistant Tyrone Corbin was the Magic’s interim coach for the second straight game.

Last Saturday, coach Steve Clifford tested positive for Covid-19, although he has said he has no symptoms.
