The MVP of the Night | The magic continues to work at LeBron James

At the end of the meeting, LeBron James refers to the NBA Jam video game and its legendary formula” He’s on fire! A week after his 56-point appearance against the Warriors, the Lakers player caught fire again against the Wizards last night. With a new game at 50 points, he becomes only the 6th player in history to do so well at home in two games in a row.

The last one to do the same to the Lakers? Kobe Bryant in March 2007, during his frenzied four-game streak to 50 points or more (two at home, then two others out). LeBron James tells Washington that he wanted… stay in this area the longest possible time

Under the eyes of his mother, his ” biggest source of inspiration ,,He reached this stage in the third quarter with 19 points, 12 of which entered consecutively for his team.

Award-winning shot at first intent in transition, super strong dunk in counter-attack, long hangtime to finish in circle with one hand, complicated and contested fadeaway… The “King” varied the delights but kept a phenomenal efficiency in hitting shooting: 18/25 including 6/9 from 3-pointers and even 8/8 from free throws, plus 7 rebounds and 6 assists.

It was an overall team performance However, the top scorer in the league assures, level with Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo (29.7 points), highlighting the Lakers’ great third quarter (37-23), one of the best this season.” I feel really good”he confides. “I work every day. Even on non-game days, I still think about the game. I watch the games, the one between the Nets and the Sixers, of course, and so many others. […] I’m preparing to help this team win as much as possible.

The superstar also takes into account the demand of the local public, ” loyal to the Lakers. They know when you play good basketball and when you play bad basketball. They have a right to get the reaction they want. They’ve seen so many great teams, so many great individual performances, so many great things in this room, in the history of this franchise. As a member of this organization I feel I have to offer them memorable evenings as well.

Mission accomplished tonight.
