Anthony Davis scores 55 points in Lakers win

One is a dominant center with a privileged physique and the other is a tireless and very unruly point guard, but Anthony Davis and José Alvarado, each with their characteristics and virtues, were undoubtedly the names in capital letters this Sunday in the NBA.

Lakers 130, Wizards 119

With a majestic performance of 55 points (22 of 30 shooting) and 17 rebounds, Anthony Davis led these seemingly reborn Lakers, who defeated the Washington Wizards and have won eight in their last ten games.

Davis is the fifth player to top 50 points this season after Joel Embiid (59), Devin Booker (51), Darius Garland (51) and Stephen Curry (50).

Kristaps Porzingis (27 points and 9 rebounds) and Kyle Kuzma (26 points and 7 rebounds) led Washington.

Pelicans 121, Nuggets 106

The Puerto Rican José Alvarado signed his best game in the NBA and, with 38 points and a superb 8 of 11 in triples, he was essential in the victory of the New Orleans Pelicans against the Denver Nuggets in which his coach, Mike Malone, was expelled for protesting to the referees.

The Spanish Willy Hernangómez also stood out for the Pelicans, who have accumulated four consecutive wins, with 12 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal and a block in 20 minutes.

In the Nuggets, Nikola Jokic was very close to the triple-double (32 points, 16 rebounds and 9 assists).

Celtics 103, Nets 92

After four consecutive victories, the Brooklyn Nets bit the dust thanks to the Boston Celtics of Jaylen Brown (34 points and 10 rebounds) and Jayson Tatum (29 points and 11 rebounds).

Kevin Durant had 31 points and 7 rebounds for the Nets while Al Horord had 3 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in 33 minutes for the Celtics.

Blazers 116, Pacers 100

After seven games out due to injury, Damian Lillard returned with the Portland Trail Blazers and had 21 points and 6 assists to defeat the Indiana Pacers.

Jerami Grant (28 points) and Myles Turner (24 points and 9 rebounds) were the leading scorers for the Blazers and Pacers, respectively.

Kings 110, Bulls 101

Not even with 41 points and 8 rebounds from Zach LaVine could the Chicago Bulls win, one of the disappointments of the season so far and who added their third straight defeat by losing against the Sacramento Kings.

Once again with a very choral performance, the Kings, who have won three consecutive victories, were guided by Domantas Sabonis (triple-double with 11 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists) leading a group of six players over 10 points.

Knicks 92, Cavaliers 81

With a ridiculous 8 of 35 on three-pointers and a clear inferiority in rebounding (39 against 54), the Cleveland Cavaliers were shipwrecked in New York against the Knicks who urgently needed a win after having lost six of their last eight games.

Jalen Brunson (23 points) was the most outstanding of the New Yorkers and Donovan Mitchell (23 points) led Cleveland.

Grizzlies 122, Pistons 112

With Ja Morant at the helm (33 points and 10 assists), the Memphis Grizzlies scored a victory without too many obstacles against the Detroit Pistons in which the best was Saddiq Bey (24 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists).

The Spanish Santi Aldama signed a very complete performance coming off the bench with 5 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks in 18 minutes for Memphis.

Suns 133, Spurs 95

How far can the San Antonio Spurs fall? For now they have not hit rock bottom -unless everything is a strategy to get the number one in the draft and choose the coveted Victor Wembanyama- and this Sunday they suffered their eleventh consecutive defeat by losing in a beating and at home against the Phoenix Suns.

Deandre Ayton (25 points and 10 rebounds in just 25 minutes) led the Suns and Keldon Johnson (27 points) did the same in San Antonio.
