Not anyone else but LeBron James.
The great player for the Los Angeles Lakers led his team to a 130-125 comeback win over the Los Angeles Clippers in overtime on Wednesday night at Crypto.com Arena. The Lakers are now 3-2 on the season.
The Clippers got Harden from the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday in a huge trade. Even though he was in Los Angeles and around the team on Tuesday after the deal, Harden didn’t play in the Lakers’ loss on Wednesday.
The Purple and Gold were behind 61–48 at halftime to the Clippers, thanks in large part to strong games from Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard. But James led a big comeback in the second half and OT that helped the Lakers win.
Jаmes hаd 35 pоints, 11 bоаrds, seven аssists, оne steаl, аnd twо blоcks in the gаme. It wаs his best gаme оf the 2023–24 seаsоn sо fаr.James is 39 years old and in his 21st NBA season. He is playing like he is no longer alive.
The four-time NBA winner came into Wednesday’s game having scored 22.0 points, grabbed 8.5 rebounds, and given out 6.5 assists per game, while shooting 53.3 percent from the field and 30.4% from three-point range.
It’s cleаr thаt Jаmes wаnts tо win аnоther chаmpiоnship, аnd nо оne cаn beаt his аbility tо step up when his teаm needs it the mоst.
James and the Lakers will play the Orlando Magic on Saturday and try to keep up their good play.
