On January 3, Beijing time, the Lakers challenged the Hornets away from home in the NBA regular season. Before the game, the Lakers ranked 13th in the western region, 15-21, while the Hornets ranked 14th in the eastern region, 10-27. Whether James can lead the team is worth looking forward to. In terms of the starting lineup, the Lakers are Schroeder, Beverly, Brown, James and Bryant. Ham changes his form and finally stops starting as a three guard, while the Hornets are Ramelo Bauer, Rosier, Hayward, Washington and Plumley.
At the beginning, Bauer assisted Plumley to lay up, Beverly scored three points, Bryant hit the middle shot, and Schroeder threw the shot. The Lakers immediately gained the upper hand.

Bryant ate cake, Schroeder hit the jump shot, and James assisted Bryant to make a sharp spike. The Lakers stabilized the situation, Sol had three points, Rosier had a layup, and the Hornets were able to narrow the difference. Wei Shao’s shot was blocked, and he didn’t make a three-point shot. After James had a rest, the Lakers suffered from a lack of points. They didn’t get one point for three minutes. Fortunately, the Hornets had a low percentage of hits, and the Lakers had a net win of one point in a 22-21 quarter.
As far as the first quarter is concerned, Bryant played very well, but James has not yet exerted his strength, and the Lakers need to control errors. In the second quarter, the situation was one-sided. Reeves 2+1, Wei Shao broke through the layup, Reeves scored three points and scored seven points. The Lakers attacked a wave of 14-0, and the difference was instantly opened. Pramley 2+1 stopped the bleeding for the Hornets. James responded to the layup. The Hornets were also tenacious. Under the leadership of Pramley, they could narrow the difference. Beverly three points and James layup jointly responded, and Reeves and Washington shared three points, Beverly big hat Rosier, Reeves assists James to pick up the air, but it is not over yet. James makes another mid shot, Bryant makes a hook, Reeves makes a jump shot at the whistle, and the Lakers lead by 15 points after half-time battle.
James is really good. He scored 15 points in the second quarter, and Reeves also scored 13 points. On the contrary, Weishao is in a low state. In the third quarter, James made 2+1 with high difficulty at the beginning, Hayward responded with a jump shot, James assisted Bryant to dunk, and then made a successful jump shot. Brown scored three points, James made a foul, and the difference had reached 20 points. James continued to make 2+1, Ball responded with three points. The Hornets were also tenacious, catching up to within 20 points. McDaniels counterattacked a dragon to split the spike, Ham called a pause, and Brown hit with three points after returning, James threw a shot, and Gabriel made 2+1. The Hornets had been scoring all this time, but the Lakers firmly controlled the situation on the court. Nann threw a shot, and Nann also scored three points. At the end of the three quarters, the Lakers led by 18 points.
Wei Shao withdrew from the game in the third quarter because of his sore left foot. The Lakers did not dare to relax in the last quarter. Williams, Ball and Smith scored one after another, and the Hornets reached the single digit. Schroeder’s jump shot and James’s layup teamed up to stop the bleeding. Rozier’s three points soared, and Schroeder responded with the same three points. Bryant dunked, and the difference returned to 15 points. The Hornets did not give up. Ball scored continuously to lead the team to attack back, and Brown responded with three points. Then James got another layup. Time was running out, Rozier stepped back and made a three-point shot. Bryant responded with a sharp spike. James’s free throw ended the suspense. The Lakers finally defeated the Hornets 121-115 for two consecutive victories.
Throughout the game, the Lakers won easily and successfully revenged the Hornets. After this battle, the Lakers ranked 12th in the Western Conference. In terms of data, James played a crazy game. He scored 43 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists in 16 of the 26 games. In fact, if you only look at the first quarter, James played a regular game, but from the second quarter, James showed a strong offensive ability. His impact is still unclear, and he can score easily in the face of sandwiches. According to statistics after the game, James has scored at least 25 points in 21 games this season, becoming the 20th season in NBA history, The player who gets the most 25+times, in other words, James ranks first in history. Bryant’s 18 points and 15 rebounds are commendable, Brown’s 12 points and 5 rebounds are also good, Beverly’s 6 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 mistakes, and Schroeder’s 15 points and 5 assists. Reeves made a big surprise, with 15 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 points for Gabriel.
However, Wei Shao played poorly, with only 2 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 mistakes in the first eight games. Since he was replaced in the first quarter, Wei Shao seems to be out of shape, perhaps affected by injuries. I hope he can adjust in the next game. Ham’s platoon arrangement for this battle was OK, at least he didn’t use the four guard lineup. On the Hornets’ side, Bauer had 24 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 mistakes, Plumley had 18 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists, and Rosier had 27 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists. The Hornets’ trinuclear hit 69+23+14 and still lost. We can only say that James was too strong, Hayward had 8 points, 3 assists and McDaniels had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 3 steals.
