LeBron James, defense power Lakers past Jazz in home opener

first_img“Both shifts in the lineup gave us a little bit of a burst offensively,” Vogel said. “And we didn’t lose anything defensively.”The spacing and quickened pace helped James come alive in the third quarter. He scored 12 of his 32 points in the period and the Lakers extended their lead from six points to 19.They were also boosted by Troy Daniels, one of the additions of the summer who was touted as impact 3-point help. Daniels knocked down four of his eight long-range attempts.“I’m out there just doing what I’m told,” Daniels said. “King James told me, ‘Go out there and shoot it.’ So that’s what I did.”The Lakers next face Charlotte at home on Sunday, but Davis made it sound like the follow-up would be hard-pressed to eclipse his regular-season home debut.“Couldn’t ask for nothing better,” he said. “Especially the first home game. Great crowd. Great atmosphere. We were able to get a win in front of our fans.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs None of them could touch James, who had a vintage performance while adding 10 assists and seven rebounds. He turned up the heat in the second half with contested layups, stepback jumpers and other shots that simply weren’t falling in the opener against the Clippers. James said he had to switch himself into aggression late in the first half.“I felt like I was trying to read the defense a little bit too much instead of being my normal self, just trying to play a read-and-react game instead of overthinking it,” he said. “Once I saw the game kind of slowing down, I felt like it was a need for our team to get in the paint a little bit more.”It was a change from the first half, when the only working part of the offense was Davis, despite physical contests by Gobert. Davis’ increasing chemistry with his teammates was on display on a pair of lobs he caught from James over the course of the game, but as a unit, the Lakers struggled. During one 6½-minute stretch, they scored just two points on a layup by Quinn Cook as the Jazz kept the game at a thudding pace.In an effort to find a more dynamic scoring lineup, Coach Frank Vogel switched up the second-half starters, moving Davis to center and subbing out JaVale McGee for guard Alex Caruso – a healthy scratch in the season opener.Related Articles AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe fashion in which that win came was herky-jerky against one of the best defenses in the league, but the Lakers also delivered on some of the structural changes made this season. The leading scorers were LeBron James (32) and Anthony Davis (21), who each took a half of whipping the offensive reins. It also featured another 3-point specialist, acquired over the summer, ripping the nets from long range.The surprise came on the defensive end, where the Lakers showed up the two-time reigning Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert and his compatriots and forced 23 turnovers. The visitors were shown no harbor, shooting just 41 percent (29 for 70), getting clocked on the offensive glass (just three second-chance opportunities) and generally getting drummed out on the offensive end.It was a quiet night for many of Utah’s stars. Gobert had just eight points, while Mike Conley’s shooting woes continued (3 for 11, 13 points) while he was guarded by Green and Avery Bradley.“We are the real deal defensively,” said Davis, who added seven rebounds and five blocked shots. “We try to lay our hats on defense. We want to be a defensive-oriented team, and guys came in and were pesky today.”The biggest threat to the first home win of the season was the shot-making threat of Donovan Mitchell. The third-year guard started out 7 for 11 from the field, defying the hard-nosed defense of the Lakers. But even he missed his last four shots as a fourth-quarter comeback attempt faltered.
