LeBron James, Lakers rally in second half to secure comeback win over Mavericks

LeBron James scored 28 points, Brandon Ingram added 19 and the Los Angeles Lakers won their second game in as many nights, 114-103 over the Dallas Mavericks today.

It's the third time in five back-to-back sets this season that the Lakers have taken both games.

Los Angeles trailed for most of the first three quarters — and fell behind by as many as 15 in the second — before going on a 10-4 run the final three minutes of the third to take a 78-75 advantage into the fourth.

The Lakers were up 90-86 before taking control with a 15-3 run that included nine points by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Harrison Barnes led Dallas with 29 points, and Dwight Powell added 17 off the bench.

Dallas was assessed four technical fouls in the game, including three in the fourth quarter. JJ Barea was ejected midway in the fourth after receiving his second technical.

Dallas led 45-30 less than four minutes into the second quarter when the Lakers got back into it with 10 straight points, which included six by James. The Mavericks led 58-53 at halftime.

Kyle Kuzma added 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Lakers.
