LeBron James continues to be out with knee issues, but even Anthony Davis hasn’t suited up for the Lake show tonight.

LaMelo Ball brings back LeBron James-Dwyane Wade’s connection with lob

Ball has really stepped things up in his sophomore year so far. But what hasn’t changed is his insane passing ability. So while facing off against the Lakers, the young star got the ball from Bridges. However, he faked out the defender into the layup and threw a lob right back for Miles. This had Twitter going nuts, as it was reminiscent of the Wade-LeBron connection.

The Hornets are taking things right to the shorthanded Lakers. They are holding a small lead going to the fourth quarter. But momentum could definitely tip the scales.
