LeBron: Lakers determined to bounce back against Bucks after road streak ends

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers during the game against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on December 17, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Unfortunately, they were unable to pull this one out, as the Pacers won the game, 105-102.

Davis, who turned his left ankle in Sunday's win over Atlanta but played through the injury, has been ruled out for Tuesday night's match-up against the Pacers, according to Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times. Late in the fourth, the Lakers were clinging to a five-point lead, but saw it quickly erased by a mini 5-0 run by Malcolm Brogdon, who continues to excel in his first season with the Pacers.

Davis' injury does not seem severe, but with this report comes a fear that he will not be able to go in the Lakers' Thursday night game versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Hopefully, it is a one game absence, because the Lakers sorely missed Davis' presence on both ends of the court. He is leading the team in points (27.4), rebounds (9.3) and blocks (2.6) per game. Caruso added 11 points and shot 4/8 while also continuing his defensive playmaking.

The Pacers big men took full advantage of the Lakers not having their star defender. At 24-3, they have the best record in the league. He scored10 points and nabbed eight rebounds.

It worked for the Lakers, at times, especially getting the ball to Howard - Dwight finished with 20 points on 10-10 shooting, mostly easy dunks. Without Davis, the team was unable to use many of their multiple big man lineups, as JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard were the only bigs available tonight with Jared Dudley stepping into the starting lineup.

Unfortunately, it was not enough for the Lakers to get a victory over the Pacers. The Lakers and Bucks have the exact same record and they will be battling it out for first place in the entire National Basketball Association.
