December 5 - Anthony Davis erupted for a season-high 55 points, four shy of his career high, and recorded his 10th consecutive double-double with 17 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers raced to a big lead then held off the host Washington Wizards, 130-119, on Sunday.

The Lakers scored their fifth win in the last six games, third win in a row, and fourth consecutive road victory with Sunday's decision. Davis has been electric throughout Los Angeles' resurgence, and the defeat of Washington was his strongest performance yet.

He shot an eye-popping 22-of-30 from the floor, was 9-of-9 at the free-throw line, and did his part in staving off an attempted fourth-quarter rally by the Wizards with a 6-of-8 shooting performance in the period. Sunday marked Davis' second straight game with 44 or more points.

Lonnie Walker finished with 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the floor for the Lakers. LeBron James added 29 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Russell Westbrook came off the bench to dish 15 assists and grab seven rebounds. Washington shot 49-of-105 from the floor, including 10-of-39 from 3-point range. Kristaps Porzingis finished with 27 points and nine rebounds, and former Laker Kyle Kuzma had 26 points.

Lillard missed the previous seven games due to his second right calf injury of the season. He was 5 of 10 from 3-point range and was 7 of 16 overall in 32 minutes. Anfernee Simons made five 3-pointers while contributing 22 points and six assists as Portland won its second straight game after losing seven of its previous eight.

Myles Turner recorded 24 points and nine rebounds and Buddy Hield had 22 points and 11 rebounds for Indiana. Andrew Nembhard added 16 points and eight assists while Bennedict Mathurin and Aaron Nesmith had 10 points apiece.

Phoenix got back on track after having a six-game winning streak snapped by Houston at home on Friday. Devin Booker had 20 points for the Suns, with Dario Saric scoring a season-high 17, Jock Landale hitting for 12 and Landry Shamet adding 10.

Morant's 21 third-quarter points were a career high for a single quarter. Dillon Brooks had 22 points, five rebounds and five assists and Jaren Jackson Jr. also scored 22 points. Brandon Clarke supplied 14 points and 14 rebounds and John Konchar added 11 points and four steals.

Saddiq Bey's 24 points, seven assists and six rebounds off the bench led the Pistons, who have lost four of their last five. Bojan Bogdanovic contributed 18 points and Killian Hayes added 13. Hamidou Diallo and Jaden Ivey chipped in 10 points apiece.

Donovan Mitchell led Cleveland with 23 points and Darius Garland added 17, while Evan Mobley tallied 11 points and 10 rebounds. Cedi Osman had 10 points for the Cavaliers, who shot 34.9 percent from the field and 8 of 35 (22.9 percent) from 3-point range.

Clinical England overcame a pedestrian start to surge to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Senegal on Sunday as high-quality goals by Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka swept them into a mouth-watering World Cup quarter-final clash with France.
