After the Los Angeles Lakers vs Milwaukee Bucks match, the Lakers lost against the Bucks, especially without the presence of superstars Lebron James and Austin Reaves. However, Anthony Davis and Max Christie showed that they still have what it takes despite the absence of the aforementioned players. Davis and Christie still competed hard in the intense match regardless.
Anthony Davis, in particular, played 19 minutes and scored 16 points, grabbing 7 rebounds, while Christie gave an impressive bench performance, adding 10 points to the scoreboard.
The Los Angeles team fielded a starting lineup consisting of D’Angelo Russel, Taurean Prince, Rui Hachimura, Christian Wood, and Anthony Davis. This lineup has offered a significant size advantage for the Lakers. In the match, the team still managed to hold their ground against the Bucks’ starting five and even took an early lead of eight points in the NBA standings during the first quarter.
Meanwhile, Cam Reddish and the Lakers’ bench players entered the game and showed a splendid performance during the first half. Jaxson Hayes, in particular, showcased his shot-blocking skills, while Reddishwas actively pursuing rebounds while Christie contributed five points by halftime.

As expected, Anthony Davis ended the night in the first half, and the Bucks capitalized on this, embarking on a 7-0 in the NBA standings against a Lakers lineup marked by youth and a lack of chemistry.
