LOS ANGELES — LeBron James and Anthony Davis eased into the NBA’s pre-season on Wednesday because the Los Angeles Lakers scored a 112-107 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

James, who barely two months ago led the Lakers to their NBA Finals triumph in Orlando, bagged 11 points with two rebounds and two assists throughout 15 first half minutes in Phoenix.

 

 

Davis added 10 points with 4 rebounds in 18 minutes on court. Both James and Davis had been rested for the second half.

New Lakers signing Marc Gasol added three points in a 21-minute look. Kyle Kuzma led the scoring for the Lakers with 23 points.



The coronavirus-interrupted 2019-2020 marketing campaign — which shut down for 4 months between March and July — finally wrapped up in Florida in October.

With the new season tipping off on December 22, it means teams could have the shortest off-season in NBA historical past.

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel had opted to rest each James and Davis for the team’s first two pre-season games towards the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Lakers have been put in as favorites for the upcoming season, strengthening their squad with the addition of Gasol, German point guard Dennis Schroder and center Montrezl Harrell.
