LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are going through a tumultuous 2022-23 season, and it looks like it’s going to have not so great impact on both their legacies.
However, as they face the Miami Heat tonight on the road they have the advantage of carrying a moment from their massive 129-110 win over the Magic in Orlando last night.
James led his side with 28 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and some insane athleticism to save himself from a massive possible injury.

But will he be available to do it again on a back-to-back night action, and this time against his former team?
Will LeBron James, the 37-year-old Lakers star, play back-to-back nights?
If he is healthy, the King would not miss a chance to put up a show in the FTX Arena where has brought 2 championships in his 4-year stint from 2010 to 2014.
With the Lakers being 14-20 in the season and Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo being questionable for the game, he’d definitely want to get a step closer to .500. Although, the Lakers have not yet come out with their injury report for the game.

Even if two of the Heat’s All-Star don’t play, it won’t be an easy one for the Purple and Gold as Kyle Lowry just led them to a solid victory against Minnesota Timberwolves to get them even (17-17) in the W/L column.

How has LeBron played recently?
What if we told you this 28-point performance was the lowest points scored by the 18x All-Star in the Lakers’ last 8 outings? You’d say he must have missed most of the games.
The 37-year-old has played 7 out of those 8 games with an average of over 34 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists per game. Redefining ‘unreal’, every time he sets foot on the hardwood!
