After being suspended for one game after an altercation against Isaiah Stewart in a game against the Pistons, LeBron came back in the starting lineup against the Indiana Pacers. LeBron brought them the win, scoring 39 points and playing big minutes in the clutch.
LeBron got two Pacers fans tossed from the game for apparent trash-talking and saying inappropriate things to him right before he took over the game. Two fans were sitting courtside, and LeBron took one of the referees and pointed to the two fans that were heckling him in the OT. That is not the first time LeBron had fans getting tossed out from the game, and the last time it happened in Atlanta last season when he complained about the older lady and her husband.
Apparently, that moment was a game-changing one for LeBron and the Lakers since he made two consecutive three-point shots to secure a much-needed win for the team in purple and gold.
LeBron’s 5th triple of the game extends the @Lakers lead in OT… he’s got a season-high 37!

Even though the Lakers were losing the majority of the game, thanks to LeBron’s monster game with 39 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds, they were able to bounce back and win in Indiana. The Lakers are currently sitting on a 10-10 record and are on the 9th spot in the western conference.
