Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Philadelphia 76ers Postgame (videos)

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Larry Nance Jr. had a career-high night on the glass, with 14 rebounds in the Lakers win over the Philadelphia 76ers on New Years Day, marking their first winning streak of the season.

Lou Williams led all scorers with 24 points, his fifth 20+ point game as a Laker, combining with Jordan Clarkson for 43 points. The starting backcourt Williams-Clarkson duo has found success in the past few games, also combining for 43 points in their win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday.

Before tonight, the last time the Lakers won consecutive games was February of last season. Coincidentally, that three-game win streak also began with a win against the Celtics.

The Lakers held Philadelphia to a season-low 84 points, and after the game head coach Byron Scott discusses how happy he’s been with his teams effort over the past couple games. With Kobe Bryant out with a sore shoulder, Anthony Brown got the start and Scott also talks about the rookie’s performance.

Plus, Julius Randle, Williams, Nance and Clarkson all weigh in after the game.
