Watch: LeBron Slams Insane Dunk After Amazing Pass From KCP
January 6, 2020
The Los Angeles Lakers earned another win. They have an excellent season, and the best is yet to come. The team earned a big win against the Detroit Pistons, and LeBron James pulled out another amazing dunk.
LeBron and his Lakers threw a block party on Sunday night, and let’s just say that the Detroit Pistons didn’t like any of it. L.A. managed to block 20 shots, just shy of their franchise record of 21. Anthony Davis led the win with 24 points, 11 rebounds and 8 blocks. If by any chance you didn’t notice, he almost became the first Laker to get a triple-double with blocks since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did so in 1975. Davis allowing his teammates to finish the game with a win that was sort tighter than it should have been. Well, 106-99 is a nice score, and the Lakers are the best team in the NBA.
Los Angeles went on a 14-0 run punctuated by a big fast-break dunk from Alex Caruso in his first game back from the calf tightness he struggled with to push the team to an 88-79 lead.
The Lakers had a 90-81 when the king of basketball went to the bench. This was followed by a 9-1 Pistons run in which Los Angeles’ only point came on a technical free throw. LeBron joined the team with around five minutes left of the game, and finished with 21 points, 11 assists and 14 rebounds. It was an amazing triple-double that helped the Lakers win down the stretch. Los Angeles needs to find a way to rest LeBron without affecting the game.
Avery Bradley left the match in the first half with a sprained ankle. The team said x-rays were negative and Bradley didn’t have any fractures. However, they still need to hold him out of the rest of the game. The Lakers will have to watch his condition.
The Lakers are in the middle of an excellent season, and pretty much every fan is convinced that they will win the next game. Fans are also convinced that the Lakers will finish the season with a title. Game on, Lakers!
