The Lakers started off their season-high, seven-game road trip by winning three of four before Anthony Davis was sidelined with an injury.
He returned just in time to help his team avoid a third straight defeat.
Davis had 27 points and 14 rebounds in his return to the lineup and Los Angeles hung on to beat the Boston Celtics 96-95 on Saturday night when Daniel Theis missed a follow shot at the buzzer.
