They defeated the Chicago Bulls 101-90. However, the score was closer than it appeared. At one point the Lakers led the Bulls by 30 points. Coach Frank Vogel explained the gameplan of wanting to play through Anthony Davis. The gameplan worked to a tee.
“We want to make sure we’re playing through him as much as possible,” coach Frank Vogel said. “We have a lot of new guys on this team, so there have been times early in the season where myself and even AD has been trying to get other guys comfortable. We knew this week, the beginning of this trip, was a time to start having him be more assertive.”
