Lakers doing what the Nets failed to do twice

The Lakers arrived in Cleveland on the back of two impressive wins. They beat the Bucks before they defeated the Bulls for the second time in the season. They continued this Eastern Conference trip with another win tonight, asserting that they are the best team in the league.

A few days ago, the Cavs beat the Nets twice in a row. Despite having their newly formed Big 3, the Nets failed to defeat the Cavs in both attempts. So the Lakers beating them tonight just shows that it is a big win considering these factors.

After the Lakers traded for Anthony Davis, there were many doubters who felt Davis carried the team. But since then, LeBron has proved repeatedly that he is still the best player on the team.

Tonight, he had his best performance of the season. He finished with a monstrous 46 points, eight rebounds, and six assists. He also shot lights out, going 19-26 from the field, and 7-11 from the three-point line. It was his highest-scoring game since May 2018, when he dropped 46 points against the Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
