It might not have been quite the NBA Finals preview we were hoping for, but the Brooklyn Nets still scored one of their most important wins of the season when they went to Staples Center and beat defending champion Lakers, 109-98 With Anthony Davis, Dennis Schroder and Kevin Durant all out and several Lakers suffering minor injuries during the game, it was hardly the shock of the Titans that we expected, but for Brooklyn this represents another step towards the championship squad they are hoping to build

They entered this West Coast road trip with a somewhat underwhelming 15-12 record, but with four straight wins in the books and three against playoff teams, the Nets appear to be righting the ship and heading for the summit of the Eastern Conference James Harden led the way with 23 points, 11 assists and six rebounds, but it was Brooklyn’s superlative shot that led the way The Nets made 18 3 points en route to victory The Lakers only did eight

The Lakers continue to grapple with Davis’ absence, and with Dennis Schroder ruled out due to league health and safety protocols, it’s also unclear when he’ll return LeBron James is no stranger to carrying weaker teams, but if he is to keep the Lakers in the hunt for the Western Conference seed he will need to play some of the best basketball of his career. Even a night of 32 points, eight rebounds and seven assists was not enough against the Nets

Thank you for staying with us this week You have all earned it Thank you 🖤🖤🖤Nets win imageTwittercom / 4kr6eRMlgY

We’re back to an 18-point game with just over seven to go, but expect to see the Bench Brigade soon

You love seeing it from Marc Gasol: Dive on the ground to save a stray bullet in a 23 point game to get LeBron the corner 3 This game is impossible to win, but it’s a league habit

Kyle Kuzma made it there, but otherwise had a very good night He’s 16 and 9 with his generally strong defense He and LeBron are the only Lakers who came to play tonight

The rim is just mocking the Lakers at this point Caldwell-Pope’s 3 rattles around the rim for a moment before falling

Marc Gasol being ready to shoot is one of the few bright spots for the Lakers He’s going to have that open look from 3 through the playoffs

Eight quarterback turnovers for the Lakers EIGHT This is what happens when your second and third best offensive players are absent

The Lakers are keeping it close, but they can’t win this thing without making some 3 Brooklyn has 30 more points behind the arc so far tonight

LeBron keeps waiting for that double, he never comes, then he shrugs and hits a turnaround jumper
