“I love this team” LeBron James reacts to Lakers’ third straight victory in his absence

The Los Angeles Lakers are in fiery form in the late stages of the NBA’s regular season, even though their superstar, Lebron James, has been out for a long time due to an ankle injury.

The Lakers won their third consecutive game last night against the Toronto Raptors by a score of 122-112 at the Crypto.com Arena. The game produced a roller coaster of quarters, and in the end, the host managed to keep a 15-point lead in the final quarter and clinch the victory.

The star himself was enthralled watching the game from his bed and, as usual, took it to Twitter instantly.

What did LeBron James tweet?

The 38-year-old forward is enjoying his team’s late success even though he can’t join them on the court. However, the Lakers star did his part by supporting his team in every way he could amid the sprained ankle issue.

After watching the Lakers triumph, the four-time NBA champion became exceedingly excited and tweeted, “🗣️🗣️🗣️🗣️🗣️ Man, I love this team!!! #Lakeshow”

The Lakers showed their class last night by fighting until the final whistle of the game, which reflected their total team effort. Point guard D’Angelo Russell continued his fiery form, scoring 28 points with 5 rebounds and 9 assists in 31 minutes of play.

Besides Russell, Jarred Vanderbilt, Dennis Schröder, Austin Reaves, and Rui Hachimura scored double figures each, which propelled the Lakers to the victory whistle.

On the other hand, Lebron had damaged his ankle pretty badly after playing through the soreness game after game. At that moment, the roster was barely able to include five quality players in the starting lineup.

However, as Anthony Davis came back and players like Russell and Vanderbilt arrived, Lakers fans can now really see the postseason dream that King James foretold a month ago. Until his return, the Lakers got to keep their ship afloat and qualify for the postseason.

What’s your reaction to watching the Lakers’ winning cruise? Is Lebron James’ word going to come true? Leave your prediction in the comments.
