#sportsscores | Lakers vs. Raptors score: Live updates as LeBron James and Co. look to clinch No. 1 seed in West with win

The bubble has largely been devoid of defense so far, but the Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors appear to be an exception. Through three quarters, the two championship contenders are in a heated contest as the Raptors leas 72-70. The Lakers’ star duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis has only five field goals through three quarters, but they’ve been rescued by an excellent performance by their bench. While their starters have only 28 points, their backups have 42. 

They’ve needed every one of them just to keep this game competitive because the Raptors have paired their excellent defense with a monster night from Kyle Lowry. He has 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists through three quarters. He’s been the best player on the floor in a game with three All-NBA players. 

The game is currently live on ESPN. You can follow along with us for live news, updates and analysis of the marquee game on Saturday’s slate.
