Guess who is back and not a moment too soon. King James scored 28 points to help the Lakers to a 115-122 win over Indiana. The Lakers missed LeBron’s dominance from the paint. Together with Davis,they combined a total of 52 points almost half of the team’s points. LeVert scored same number of points for the Pacers as the returning James adding 12 assists to boot. Lakers were not exactly brilliant from outside the 3 point line shooting 11 out of 29 to just 9 from Indiana from 33 attempts.

That was the difference maker.Lakers have one more chance to avoid the Play Ins and take 6th spot from Portland who have an identical win loss record with the regular season winding down.
