Overcoming the absence of star players LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the Los Angeles Lakers secured a notable victory against the Boston Celtics in a surprising turn of events.

Austin Reaves emerged as the hero of the night, scoring an impressive 32 points, including a career-high seven three-pointers, leading the Lakers to a 114-105 win over the Celtics.

Reaves' stellar performance kept the Lakers ahead throughout the game, thwarting every attempt by the Celtics to close the gap at TD Garden.

With this triumph, Reaves has accumulated an impressive 60 points over his last two games, solidifying his status as a key player for the Lakers.

Despite trade rumors circulating ahead of the Feb. 8 deadline, Reaves' recent standout performances have made it clear that the Lakers have no intention of parting ways with the third-year guard.


Social media erupted with praise for Reaves, as fans marveled at his dominant display against the NBA's top team.

The Lakers, who have faced challenges in finding consistency this season, may find a solution in giving Reaves an expanded role. 


With a record of 25-25, Los Angeles should seriously consider continuing to utilize Reaves even when James and Davis return to the lineup.


As the Lakers look to maintain their newfound momentum, their next challenge awaits against the New York Knicks on Saturday night. (Source: Breacher Report)
