LeBron James showed up in a huge way and banked a ton of points against the Kings. That contribution helped the Lakers win, but King James is a hard man to please.
When it comes to basketball you should never doubt LeBron James. The Space Jam 2 star has proven his ability to rise to the occasion at this stage in his career. His last game against Kings was no different where he took it upon himself to win Lakers the game without much help.
The Lakers were down 96-89 with eight minutes and 11 seconds left. Then James scored 14 points and Malik Monk bucketed 11 to help turn things around. LeBron was able to contribute 31 points to the Lakers’ overall score. Talen Horton-Tucker, Malik Monk, and Dwight Howard also contributed to the victory.
Following the clutch shot, LeBron James displayed his reaction as he walked by the Kings’ bench. He had some words for former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson. James yelled: “I’m a motherf***ing problem, b*tch” at Thompson.
LeBron followed up on that hyped-up comment with a missed free throw. The miss could be ignored on the back of his 31 points, five rebounds and five assists for the night. James’ clutch performance gave the LA Lakers their third consecutive victory as they improved to 20-19 for the season.
To be fair, Tristan Thompson also has his own share of worries. He recently had to come forward and admit that he cheated on Khloe Kardashian and fathered another child. He probably had a lot of things on his mind, but LeBron James wanted to make sure nobody forgot about him.
