Lakers’ LeBron James dunks against Hawks during an NBA game at State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA, the US, on December 15, 2019.

LeBron James scored 32 points and the Los Angeles Lakers extended their winning streak to seven with a 101-96 victory over the pesky Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.

The Lakers pulled even with Milwaukee for the NBA’s best record at 24-3, The Associated Press reported.

The Hawks kept it close all the way. Rookie Cam Reddish got a look at a tying three-pointer from the corner, but the shot clanked off the rim. Danny Green went to the other end and knocked down a pair of free throws to send the Hawks to their fourth straight loss.

After scoring 28 points in a win at Miami on Friday night, James flew to Columbus, Ohio, to watch son Bronny play a high school game Saturday night. Then, James traveled on to Atlanta to face the Hawks.

James also had 13 rebounds and seven assists, the best a no-look, between-the-legs pass that caught Dwight Howard breaking down the lane for a massive dunk. Anthony Davis added 27 points and 13 rebounds.

Trae Young led the Hawks with 30 points.

 

Nuggets 111 Knicks 105

 

Nikola Jokic made a late go-ahead three-pointer and finished with scored 25 points to help Denver hold off New York.

Will Barton had 16 points, Gary Harris added 15 and Jamal Murray had 14, including a key three-pointer in the late going. The Nuggets beat New York for the 12th straight time in Denver.

Marcus Morris led New York with 22 points. The Knicks were coming off back-to-back road wins under interim coach Mike Miller.

 

Kings 100 Warriors 79

 

Bogdan Bogdanovich scored 25 points, Buddy Hield added 19 and Sacramento routed Golden State.

The Kings won for the fourth time in five games and shook off a disappointing home loss Friday to the lowly New York Knicks. They shot a season-best 60 percent from the field and beat the Warriors for just the fourth time in the past 25 games between the teams dating to the 2013-14 season.

Willie Cauley-Stein, facing his former team, led the Warriors with 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting. Golden State has lost eight of nine to fall to 5-23.
