(AP Photo/Michael Owen Baker)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Unlike his trademark unibrow, Anthony Davis does his best work in a pair.That’s not to say that the 26-year-old’s 32-point, 11-rebound, four-block game on Sunday night didn’t make him look like a star. But the performance came without a win, which has become the ultimate bottom line in a Lakers (24-6) season with renewed championship aspirations.It was telling that even as Davis checked back in to start the fourth quarter, the visiting Denver Nuggets (20-8) kept on pulling away. In a 128-104 loss — the Lakers’ third straight and the largest margin of defeat this season — it was clear that Davis sorely lacked his running mate, LeBron James.Frank Vogel said it himself before tip-off Sunday: No one player could replace what James does for the Lakers. But what the game itself made clear is that a group of players can’t quite replace him either — a chilling thought with James’ status in question for a Christmas blockbuster against the rival Clippers. Davis was most frustrated with the factor that he felt was most in the Lakers’ control, even without James: defense. He chalked up Denver’s second-half avalanche to his team not bringing enough effort to the table.“We can’t allow slippage on the defensive end,” he said. “The more we do that, the more teams see that and try to attack our weaknesses.”The most effective card in the Lakers’ deck were post-ups to Davis that he made look brilliant, throwing spins and floaters and crossovers from his repertoire to produce points against defenders ill-equipped to keep up. But outside of Davis, the rest of the team shot just 43 percent. No other Lakers starter finished with double-digit points.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Rajon Rondo, who slid into the lineup in James’ place, led with eight assists, but was just 2 for 8. Entering the starting lineup for the first time since his hairline fracture in his leg, Avery Bradley had six points on 2 for 8 shooting.The most compelling Laker outside of Davis was Kyle Kuzma, making his return to the floor for the first time in two weeks. He required 15 shots for his 16 points, but added hustle plays that inspired confidence that his ankle soreness is behind him.The Nuggets led a balanced attack, with six players in double figures. Paul Millsap led with 21 points.The Lakers worried a little that Davis, who has been playing through ankle soreness, might’ve tweaked his right knee. He played through discomfort in the fourth quarter and told reporters after the game he was feeling OK.James did not stay until the final buzzer, exiting the court with a few minutes left in the blowout.“It’s kind of hard just to next-man-up LeBron,” Kuzma said. “He does so much.”center_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWhen asked what the Lakers missed most with James’ absence, Vogel laughed. Where exactly can you start?“It’s hard to say with something like that,” he said. “All over.”True, the Nuggets are the No. 2 team in the West trailing the Lakers, and they entered the game playing their best basketball of the season while extending a winning streak to six. But the change in tenor from the two teams’ earlier meeting this month — in which Davis played a starring role while fighting through illness — was striking.A two-point game at halftime, the second half slid completely in Denver’s favor with the Nuggets outscoring them 73-51. While James’ scoring was certainly missed, the most irreplaceable element was his ball-handling and playmaking: The Lakers had more turnovers (19) than assists (18).The giveaways allowed the Nuggets to wallop the Lakers in transition, racking up 22 fast-break points. While the game started getting away as Denver took a double-digit lead in the third, Gary Harris announced the rout was on with a transition bucket followed by a three to stretch the margin to 18 in the opening minute of the fourth.
