With 56 points at the 124: 116 success on the Golden State Warriors, the 37-year-old on Saturday (local time) introduced the NBA season record of Trae Young and helped the Lakers for the first victory after four defeats in series.
James achieved 16 meters in the last nine minutes of the game, he met three threesome within 76 seconds. 34 seconds before the end James served his teammate Carmelo Anthony for the ultimately decisive threesome. The Lakers turned the game through a 35:22 in the final quarter.
“There is really no words for that. An incredible idea of the best player who ever existed,” said Lakers coach Frank Vogel for the performance of James. “He was phenomenal,” said Anthony. It was James’ best value in the jersey of the Californians and the third highest point yield in his 19-year-old NBA career. He had set up his personal record (61) in 2014 for Miami Heat.
The much criticized Lakers are still just on the ninth place of Western Conference with 28 wins and 35 defeats, sent on the way to the play-in tournament (places 7-10) for the master round but again a sign. “Despair” has powered the team on Saturday night, James said, “just despair, we needed this victory, which means a lot. It’s good that we have done that before our own fans, they deserve it.”
The Warriors, for which Steph Curry came to 30 meters, turn through a small crisis, it was the fourth defeat in a row. They remain clear at the west as a third place. “They were last stumbled a bit, but we’re tripping the whole season,” James said. The Lakers had eleven the previous 14 games lost.
