LeBron James paces the Lakers with 25 points vs. former Heat team
LeBron James scores 25 points, dishes six assists and snags four rebound in the Los Angeles Lakers' 95-80 victory over the Miami Heat at Staples Center. With the win, the Lakers improve to 7-1 on the season, their best start through eight games since 2010-11.
LeBron James leads the Lakers in points, rebounds and assists as he records his third-consecutive triple-double in the Los Angeles' comeback victory against the Chicago Bulls in L.A.'s sixth-straight win. LeBron James will sit out the rest of the season due to a groin injury, the L.A. Lakers said Saturday. It's the first time James won't play in the postseason since 2005. Anthony Davis and LeBron James each credit the Los Angeles Lakers' defense after defeating the Utah Jazz 95-86 for their first win of the 2019-2020 season. LeBron adds that the Lakers' defense was poor vs. the Clippers, so he was happy with the effort Friday night. He also credits Troy Daniels who he nicknames "Layup" because every time he shoots a 3-pointer, it's a layup for Daniels. "Black-ish" star and NBA junior reporter Miles Brown joins Jalen Rose and David Jacoby to talk about his game (he compares it to Chris Paul); his favorite team in the NBA (he's still a Cleveland Cavaliers fan even though his favorite player, LeBron James, is on the Los Angeles Lakers); his pick for the GOAT (he chooses LeBron over Michael Jordan); the questions he asks players as a junior reporter; and his thoughts on the Kawhi Leonard/Paul George LA Clippers vs. the Anthony Davis/LeBron Lakers.
