The current season of Los Angeles Lakers is too far to be good. However, the individual games that LeBron James is doing in his team at his age is another story. The 37 years-old legend doesn´t want to lose his crown. Also, he wants to show to the fans and all the people in every match that he still has an enormous talent to play basketball. At the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, LeBron impressed all the crowd with a triple-double (38 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists). Probably, the team of Frank Vogel always needs a good James to win a match. But in this season that has become mandatory.
The away team won the game. However, as it is usually normal this season, it was not easy at all. Their start was awful, in the first quarter, Cavaliers were 14 points ahead them. In this occasion, Lakers did not collapse and comeback the game until the last period led by LeBron (13 points in the last quarter). Also, the American legend broke another record. He stands as the second leading scorer in the history of NBA. This match was his return to his team during more than 6 years. He said that always is an incentive to play against his people.
“I saw almost all my life on the basketball. They have seen me or hard about me. Who is this guy who lives at 40 minutes from here has played with 9,10,11,12 years old? Who is that bot called LeBron? They saw me when I came to Cleveland to play the tournaments of the AAU and also they went to high school matches played in the area of Cleveland, so they still watching me from 30 years ago. Since I caught a basketball ball. That is the big difference between this pitch and any other in the world” clarified.
The people in Cleveland were not very happy about their game. The defenders were awful during the match. J.B. Bickerstaff said that his players don´t insist on changing the way of the game. “We were caught up. We allow that to overcome us. You ask if we competed to win or if this was part of was planned. I think that most time of the night simply we were viewers of that”, expresses.
With this comeback of Lakers, the team of Frank Voegel secure more his ninth position (at Play-in) on West Conference. Cavaliers will keep sixths with some pressure to be on the last place that ensures Playoffs.
