Los Angeles Lakers defeated Cleveland Cavaliers at home with an incredible performance by LeBron James: triple-double and masterful final minutes of the GOAT. The Ohioans were able to see another magnificent performance from the man who was their idol and led them to the franchise’s only NBA ring.

LeBron James maintains an insane fight against the passage of time in which, for the moment, he is the winner. He proved it in Toronto with 36 points and in Washington with 38 and becoming the second leading scorer in NBA history.

He also proved it early this morning in Cleveland, his home, against the Cavaliers who succumbed 120-131 to his destructive hammer, but this time in Los Angeles Lakers jersey in his 19th NBA season.

For the sixth time this season and 105th time in his career, the wunderkind from Akron had a triple-double with 38 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists, which could have been 20 if his teammates had scored half the free throws, he offered them.

All in front of the astonished look and the royal obeisance on the part of what was his fans during 11 NBA seasons in two different stages. Cleveland, more precisely the Cavaliers jersey, will always owe him a debt for that impossible 2016 ring against Golden State Warriors.

The only one in the history of a franchise that is usually swept by its former player and idol: 17-1 balance in favor of LeBron, who averaged 29.6 goals against them.

It wasn’t an easy outing for Los Angeles Lakers, who were outplayed in a big way by Cleveland Cavaliers.

Darius Garland, Cleveland’s new wunderkind, posted a double-double of 29 points, 2 rebounds and 17 assists. His 7 points to start helped the Cavs take the lead in the first quarter and finish with a 35-28 run.

If it wasn’t for DJ Augustine -20 points on 7-of-7 shooting from the field- it would have been worse for the Lakers, who gave up the first period again, although they got up for the second quarter in an unexpected way: they turned the score around and went to the break by 67-62.

LeBron James took the spear in that second quarter with 17 of the 39 Los Angeles Lakers goals, including a dunk over his friend Kevin Love that was framed in all social networks with more than 2 million reproductions in a few minutes.

Los Angeles Lakers had a 5-point lead that served them well, but saw it falter because of their defense -like all NBA regular season- and the lack of shame of Cleveland Cavaliers: third quarter with a score of 97-96 for the Cavs.

In the last part, and where things are defined in the NBA, the best player of all time, LeBron James, appeared to defeat Cleveland Cavaliers, his home, with the jersey of Los Angeles Lakers, who today have his heart.

The GOAT had a magical last five minutes in Jordan mode: ball arriving, ball scoring with two high-flying fade-aways that gave the final blow to the Ohio.

With this victory, Los Angeles Lakers are clinging to the Play-In with a 31-41 balance that places them in ninth place in the Western Conference, with the San Antonio Spurs -eighth in the standings- three games behind.

Cleveland Cavaliers remain on the edge of direct access to the NBA Playoffs: they are sixth with 41 wins in 72 games, but Toronto Raptors are just one game behind.
