NBA: Los Angeles Clippers Beat Los Angeles Lakers 119-115

Marcus Morris Sr. sank six three-pointers and had 21 points to help the Los Angeles Clippers snap a three-game losing streak with a 119-115 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Paul George put up 19 points for the Clippers, who never trailed and never pulled away in the city rivals’ first meeting of the season. They played a choppy, chippy game appropriate for two clubs hovering around .500 while dealing with major injury problems that have slowed the development of two rosters harboring NBA title ambitions.

LeBron James scored 23 points and 11 rebounds in his first game back from a one-game absence under the NBA’s health and safety protocols. A positive COVID-19 test kept him out of the Lakers’ blowout win over Sacramento on Tuesday, but he received a series of negative subsequent tests that allowed him to play for only the 12th time in the Lakers’ 24 games this season.

Anthony Davis had 27 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who dropped to 12-12.

Kawhi Leonard has been out all season recovering from knee surgery for the struggling Clippers, who got blown out by New Orleans and Sacramento at home earlier in the week.
