Watch: Lakers’ LeBron James’ swift palm prevents expensive camera from damage in win over Warriors

The media always follows LeBron James everywhere. In the last match, he saved an expensive asset that covers the whole media.

On Thursday night, though, the four-time league MVP turned the script when he accidentally collided with a cameraman on the sidelines while chasing down the ball for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Golden State Warriors.

Thankfully, no one was wounded during this incident. LeBron James was so quick-thinking that he caught the camera before it could crash to the ground and be damaged.

LeBron James could have filled the Arena with cameras if he wanted to, but he certainly didn’t.

A still-functioning sideline camera caught LeBron James and the Lakers’ thrashing the Warriors. Los Angeles prevailed in the end, 124-111, for their first win since the All-Star break and an overall record of 28-32.

James only managed 13 points on 5-for-20 shooting, but the fact that the Lakers won without him putting up a massive effort was a promising indicator. Malik Beasley produced 25 points on 7 3-pointers in relief of D’Angelo Russell, who left with an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Austin Reaves scored 17 points while on the bench on 6-for-6 shooting.

Having won three of their past four games, the Lakers will now have a day off before opening a three-game road trip against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.
