Persistent Pistons see victory hopes swatted away by mighty Lakers

LeBron James and Anthony Davis led the Lakers, who touted the best record in the league and the Pistons were struggling mightily, with eight losses in their last 10 games.

They continued the streak, holding on through a furious flurry in the fourth quarter to top the Pistons, 106-99, on Sunday night at Staples Center.

Dwight Howard added two baskets and Alex Caruso (13 points) scored before a three-point play by Kyle Kuzma, for a 90-79 lead.

Doumbouya was tasked with guard James or Davis all game and held his own in staying in front of them, with good footwork and forcing them both to take more difficult shots.
