NBA Round Up: Davis leads Lakers; Russell, Lillard star in Warriors & Blazers losses

The Los Angeles Lakers made it seven straight wins in the NBA, while not even a monster performance from D’Angelo Russell could lift the Golden State Warriors to victory.

The Lakers were too strong for the Miami Heat 95-80 on the back of strong displays from LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

James finished with 25 points, six assists and four rebounds, while Davis had 26 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

The Lakers improved to 7-1 to be top of the Western Conference.

The Warriors again fell short, slipping to 2-7 after a 125-119 overtime loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Russell delivered 52 points, nine rebounds and five assists, but the Warriors were beaten again.

Luka Doncic again starred with a triple-double of 38 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, but the Dallas Mavericks were upset by the New York Knicks 106-102. The 20-year-old became the youngest player in NBA history to record four triple-doubles in the first eight games of a season, according to NBA Stats.
