LeBron James Returns as Lakers Beat Hawks for 4th Straight Win
- World Soccer Today -
The Los Angeles Lakers continued their winning streak on Wednesday night, thanks in large part to the return of superstar LeBron James. James, who had been out with an ankle injury, made a dramatic return to the court and led the Lakers to a 113-97 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
This was the Lakers' fourth straight win, and they now sit at the top of the Western Conference with a record of 26-11. James finished the game with 28 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists, reminding fans and opponents alike of his dominance on the court.
In his post-game press conference, James credited his teammates for helping to carry the load while he was injured. "I just tried to come back and make an impact, but my teammates have been doing an unbelievable job all season," he said. "It's not just about one guy on this team; it's about all of us coming together and playing for each other."
The Lakers will look to continue their winning ways on Friday when they take on the Houston Rockets. With James back in action and the team playing at such a high level, it's clear that the Lakers are one of the top contenders for the championship this year.
In addition to James' impressive performance, the Lakers also got strong contributions from Kyle Kuzma, who had 20 points, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who chipped in with 15 points. The Lakers' balanced scoring attack and strong defense were key factors in their victory over the Hawks.
The Lakers have now won nine of their last 10 games, and they show no signs of slowing down. With James leading the way and the rest of the team playing at a high level, the Lakers are a force to be reckoned with.
