LOS ANGELES, California — LeBron James scored 20 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter and Josh Hart (Villanova) hit two clutch 3-pointers in the final minutes of the Lakers (15-9) fourth straight victory, 121-113 on Wednesday night.
“You just know” when James is about to take over a game, Hart said. “I’ve said it before. He’s the best ever to put on a uniform. When it’s happening, sometimes it’s amazing. People should stop criticizing, shut up and enjoy his greatness.”
Kyle Kuzma had 22 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers.
