LeBron James' absence for most of the games has been one of the primary reasons for the early struggles of the Los Angeles Lakers. This led to many believing that the King's best years were already behind him.
But if there is one thing we know about LeBron, it's to never write him off. After serving a one-game suspension due to an altercation with Isaiah Stewart, James played in a fierce way against the Indiana Pacers.
The L-Train finished the game with 39 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists helping the Lakers clinch an overtime victory over Indiana. James' scoring outburst included 5 three-pointers and one of which hyped up the entire crowd at the game.
Yes, you guessed it right, we are talking about James' deep three-pointer in the overtime following which James brought back his signature celebration style "The Silencer." It was truly amazing to see LBJ get in the zone and carry the team on his back when it mattered the most.
On the contrary, to the name of the celebration, it led to the entire crowd erupting to cheer for the King. And of course, fans were hoping to get a reaction from LeBron on the move after the game. Well, James gave a single emoji reaction to the highlight of the move on Twitter. James used his signature King's Crown emoji.
Once again LeBron silenced his doubters with a sensational performance. Following this phenomenal victory, the Lakers improved their record to 10-10. The job is far from done, but it was good to see the team playing well for a chance this season.
Moving forward, fans will hope that the team can build upon this win and hopefully reach the level that fans expect them to reach before the season begins.
There is still more than half of the season remaining and the Lakers have the talent to make a comeback. Moreover, with LeBron James returning to form, it is probably only a matter of time before things go well for the franchise.
Next up, the Lakers play against the Sacramento Kings, and they should be able to win the game and further improve their record.
