LeBron James says the Lakers 'don't give a (crap)' about Anthony Davis's critics.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Phoenix Suns arrived without their full power. That's because All-Star guards Devin Booker

and Bradley Beal were sidelined with injury, allowing the Lakers to win their home opening at Crypto.com Arena on Thursday night. 

Before the game, Lakers coach Darvin Ham stated of the Suns, "They still have a lot of firepower over there." "This is not going to be a walk in the park."

Despite trailing by 12 points entering the fourth quarter, the Lakers defeated the Suns 100-95. The Lakers didn't take

their first lead of the second half until LeBron James scored on a layup with 3:42 remaining, putting them up 89-87. 

With 1:30 remaining, Kevin Durant's shot knotted the game at 91-91. But James answered by scoring layups on successive possessions as

the Lakers took a commanding lead. James scored 10 of the Lakers' 28 fourth-quarter points while playing the entire fourth quarter.

For the Lakers, James scored 21 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists, while Anthony Davis had 30 points and 13 rebounds.

Davis was heavily chastised after scoring zero points in the second half against Denver, but James made it clear during Davis' comeback performance that the Lakers are behind him.

"We don't give a (crap) about AD criticism. We don't mind. "Nothing bothers us," James said after the game to TNT.
