Towards the end of a close fourth quarter, James could be found on the ground, diving for a loose ball, during his 17th season in the league. James, a four-time regular season MVP and three-time NBA Finals MVP, is still showing how important winning is to him and how crucial it is for him to continue to make a statement every night.

At the end of the game, MVP chants directed towards James could be heard in Staples Center. James was able to walk off the court with half a minute left and the game secured for the Lakers, earning his applause from the crowd after leaving his heart on the court for the same fans he said is the reason why he plays the game.

Anthony Davis finished with 30 points and eight rebounds, while Avery Bradley scored 24 points. The Clippers bench didn’t step up when it mattered the most, with only Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Montrezl Harrell scored in double figures. Between Leonard, George and Patrick Beverly, there were only four registered assists. James himself, more than doubled their total assists.

In the last two days, the Lakers and James have bested the Milwaukee Bucks, who have the best record in the league and the reigning MVP, and the Clippers, who are the second seed in the Western Conference and have the reigning Finals MVP.

With his recent performances, James has secured his place in MVP discussions, especially with Giannis Antetokounmpo out for the next couple of games. The Lakers have the first seed and home court advantage all but locked up for the playoffs.
