James finished with 25 points, six assists and four rebounds, while Davis had 26 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
The Lakers improved to 7-1 to be top of the Western Conference.
The Warriors again fell short, slipping to 2-7 after a 125-119 overtime loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Luka Doncic again starred with a triple-double of 38 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, but the Dallas Mavericks were upset by the New York Knicks 106-102. The 20-year-old became the youngest player in NBA history to record four triple-doubles in the first eight games of a season, according to NBA Stats.
