Anthony Davis shook off a twisted ankle to score 38 points and help the Los Angeles Lakers rally for a crucial 123-111 NBA victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Lakers improved their record to 39-38 — their first time over .500 this season — and more importantly leapfrogged ahead of the Timberwolves into seventh place in the tight Western Conference playoff race.
LeBron James scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and D’Angelo Russell had 12 points and 10 assists as all five Lakers starters scored in double figures.
The Lakers trailed by as many as 13 early in the third and were charging when Davis twisted his left ankle late in the period, grimacing as he lay on the court and limping off before returning to the game.
