The Lakers improved to 33-34 after beating the Raptors. They have won three in a row and are in ninth place in the Western Conference standings. Los Angeles is 7-3 over its last 10 games.

The Lakers were able to win a game despite James being out and Anthony Davis scoring only eight points. AD attempted just seven shots in 32 minutes, as the Raptors made it a point to double him at every turn.

“I think it’s a huge step in the right direction when a guy who has been putting up the type of numbers he’s been putting up. … Tonight we were able to come away with a win against a very good team with him only, what, eight points?” Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said. “That’s a sign of growth and that’s a testament to how deep and talented we are now.”
