Jae Crowder was one of the faces that played an instrumental role in the downfall of LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in their recent Game 6. While the focus (and deservedly so) will be on Devin Booker's monster 47 point night, Jae Crowder was a steady contributor who his big shots. Jae Crowder finished with 18 points and 8 rebounds and was one of the primary defenders on LeBron James.
LeBron James may have got the better of Crowder in a prior matchup after Crowder trash-talked him, but it seems as though Crowder got the last laugh in this situation. After the Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Lakers, Jae Crowder trolled LeBron James with an Instagram post that featured a caption that was reminiscent of a former LeBron James Tweet.
The Phoenix Suns certainly have something to celebrate by beating the Los Angeles Lakers in a series, especially considering that this is the first series they have played after their long-time playoff drought. It is not every day that you hand LeBron James a first-round exit. In fact, no one has been able to do it until these Phoenix Suns came along. The Phoenix Suns are one of the teams left to win it all, and they'll certainly be confident after beating LeBron James himself.
