The Lakers didn’t lead until late in the fourth quarter in a game where Anthony Davis didn’t play because of a fever.
The Lakers led 107-104 with a minute remaining in the fourth when James had Myles Turner isolated behind the arc. James stepped back to his left and drilled a deep three. On his way back on defense, he did the infamous Sam Cassell celebration.
Then, in overtime, the Lakers led 117-114 with just under two minutes left. LeBron had Domantas Sabonis on an isolation, but before the help defense arrived, he yet again stepped back to his left and swished a three. His infamous “The Silencer” celebration returned as the Lakers closed out the Pacers. LeBron had 39 points on the night.
