In a thrilling Play-In Tournament game, the Los Angeles Lakers managed to secure a 110-106 victory against the New Orleans Pelicans.

This win also helped the Lakers claim the #7 seed in the Western Conference. However, the game wasn't without its worrying moments.

The highlight of the match was a collision between the Lakers' LeBron James and the Pelicans' Zion Williamson. During the first half, James tried to take a charge from Williamson, leading to a heavy collision between the two giants of the game.

While James, being 6'9'' and 250 pounds, can handle a fair amount of physical play, Williamson, at 6'6'' and 284 pounds, is even bigger. The collision sent James tumbling to the floor.

Fortunately, both players were able to continue playing. However, Williamson left the game early due to "left leg soreness" after an impressive performance with 40 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists in 36 minutes.


On the other hand, James showcased his enduring talent by nearly achieving a triple-double with 23 points, nine assists, and nine rebounds. Despite being 39 years old, James continues to defy age and remain a key player for the Lakers.


With this win, the Lakers now face the challenge of playing against the defending champions, the Denver Nuggets, in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
