The Lakers have seen both of their superstars dominate in their last two wins. While AD took control on the offensive end, LBJ took control of the playmaking and the facilitating in the last two games.

Still looking a bit gingerly with his movement, pundits doubted whether ‘the King’ could bring in his explosive self to the game. James had certainly responded to these claims in some style.

With Davis still finding his feet in the game, LBJ has taken control of the Lakers’ offense and is doing it all. Early in the second half, the 36-year-old superstar went across the court with the ball. As the defense collapsed on him, ‘King James’ threw down an outrageous behind the back pass to Ben McLemore who knocked down the open jumper.


James continued his impressive play in the scoring the basketball as well. With 3:05 remaining on the clock, the 4-time MVP grabbed a defensive rebound and passed it to Alex Caruso.

With the Lakers on a three on two fast break, the ‘L-Train’ went up ahead at full speed. Caruso certainly knows all about show-time Lakers and put it off the glass for the King, who had an insane elevation and a thunderous dunk. Suns’ Mikal Bridges couldn’t do anything but look at the King’s greatness.
