Austin Reaves saved the Lakers Playoff chances with career high 35 points against Orlando Magic

The Los Angeles Lakers faced a scare in Sunday’s game against the Orlando Magic, but second-year guard Austin Reaves put forth the best scoring performance of his career to help secure a 111-105 victory at Arena.

Reaves finished with a career-high 35 points in 30 minutes off the bench, and he added six rebounds and six assists in the win. The 24-year-old shot 9-of-14 from the field and lived at the free-throw line, going 16-of-18 from the charity stripe.

The scoring outburst by Reaves helped make up for meager outings from the Lakers’ star players. Point guard D’Angelo Russell finished with 18 points, and star big man Anthony Davis had just 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting, though he added 11 rebounds.
