The Washington Wizards were really hoping to turn things around when they faced off against the LA Lakers on Thursday. With a losing streak of 12 games hanging over their heads, they were eager for a win. If they couldn’t pull it off against the Lakers, they risked being the only team in the NBA without a single win in February. Leading the charge for the Wizards were Kyle Kuzma, Deni Avdija, and Jordan Poole.

Right from the start, the Washington Wizards showed they meant business. They were sharp on both offense and defense, moving swiftly around the court. Avdija and Poole were particularly on fire, but it wasn’t just them; everyone on the Wizards’ team was giving it their all.

On the other side, the Lakers seemed a bit sluggish. Maybe it was because they had played less than 24 hours ago against the LA Clippers. They were making a few too many mistakes, with turnovers and missed shots adding up. While D’Angelo Russell was finding his groove, the rest of the Lakers were struggling. Surprisingly, despite expectations, the Wizards managed to take a 34-31 lead after the first quarter.

But the LA Lakers weren’t about to back down. In the second quarter, LeBron James and Anthony Davis stepped up their game. Davis was especially dominant, scoring points and making big plays on defense. Thanks to their efforts, the Lakers managed to edge ahead with a narrow 70-69 lead by halftime.
