LeBron James took the Los Angeles Lakers to a big win on Tuesday night, tying their first-round playoffs series against the Phoenix Suns.
The King didn't have the most spectacular game of all, but he showed up when his team most needed him to get the 109-102 win at the Phoenix Suns Arena. He had a good performance while also trying to inspire his teammates.
He was spotted yelling at Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, telling him he must shoot the ball. KCP bricked a couple of 3s down the stretch but that didn't mean anything for LeBron. Instead, he urged his teammate to keep trying no matter what.
In the end, the Lakers survived against the Suns, who didn't have Chris Paul during the final minutes of the game. The point guard is still dealing with a shoulder injury that hurt his team's plans last night.
Now the Lakers will try to take the lead at the Staples Center to en route this series in their favor. LeBron will try to play at the highest level and have the proper support for him and his team to thrive at home.
This series has already given us two great matches and the next ones will surely be the same.
