LeBron James’ prayers answered with insane 3-pointer to down Warriors (Video)
Lakers star LeBron James hit a three-pointer from near the Staples Center logo to give LA a late lead over Golden State.
James has hit many a big shot, but his dagger on Wednesday night is one very few of us could’ve seen coming. LeBron was far from a full bill of health, as his ankle was clearly still bothering him. In fact, James was struggling to reach the rim on normal jumpshots, suggesting he didn’t have much lift in his legs.
Yet, with the shot clock nearing double zeros and facing a potential Warriors possession with the game on the line, James made sure to give the Lakers an advantage.
The Lakers will face the Phoenix Suns in the playoffs
James and Steph Curry put on a show in the second half, with LeBron and Co. cementing their trip to Phoenix. James acknowledged that he was having trouble seeing, and was seeing “3 rims” as he put it after a hard foul by Draymond Green.
The Suns pose a tough challenge for the Lakers as well, but if James is truly getting healthier by the game, LA stands a greater chance than your typical No. 7-seeded underdog.
The Suns, led by LeBron’s good friend Chris Paul and phenom Devin Booker, look to dethrone the defending champs. And yes, technically the playoffs haven’t even started yet.
