LA Lakers' Team Effort Results in Another Victory

The Atlanta Hawks climb the wall established by the Lakers. The guard from Atlanta, Trae Young, led the Hawks team to multiple runs not only in the first half.

The Hawks attempted multiples times in the second half to take the lead, but the Lakers hit their momentum-stopping shots, which kept the Hawks chasing.

Trae Young had 25 points, and 14 assists, while wingman John Collins scored 21 points in his return to the Atlanta Hawks, who have lost five of seven amid significant COVID-19 problems. The Atlanta loss prompted them to drop to 2-3 on a six-game trip, its longest of the season.

Furthermore, Avery Bradley and Talen Horton-Tucker scored 21 points apiece for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have won five of six overall while remaining perfect on a five-game homestand that would end on Sunday.

Despite losing Anthony Davis, the team's major contributor, who is still absent from their injury-plagued roster, the LA Lakers had a season-high 37 assists and continue to play their most cohesive basketball in the first half of the regular season.

Meanwhile, Atlanta Hawks' coach Nate McMillan is still away from the team as he is still under the NBA's health and safety protocols. But shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic returned to uniform after clearing the protocols earlier in the week.
