“Make the Right Reads”: LeBron James Opens Up on His Second Consecutive Triple-Double Against Blazers

LeBron James

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers continued their hot run of form against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game finished in favor of LeBron’s side with a scoreline of 137-121. Following this victory, the team is now on a three-game winning streak and is looking in great touch.

This is a good sign for the defending champions as they were struggling quite a bit prior to the NBA All-Star break. The biggest reason being the absence of Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder for a few games. However, now the team has adjusted to playing in AD’s absence, they are once again on the right path.

Furthermore, after getting a well-deserved left, LeBron is continuing to make an MVP case for himself. The King spearheaded tonight’s victory with an amazing 25-point triple-double. Making it his second consecutive game to register a triple-double.

But what is the reason behind this newfound form? Well, why don’t you hear it from their leader himself?

The 36-year-old joined the post-game interview, where he explained the biggest reason behind his amazing form. James took over the fourth quarter in particular and his reasoning for that is:

We have so many reads and it’s up to me to make all those reads and in the fourth quarter obviously. I was able to find Trez [Montrezl Harrell] for the majority of those reads. … Just trying to put the ball on time, on target, make the right reads and I was able to do that specially in the fourth.”

Making the right play at the right time is a crucial ability for any leader in the NBA. LBJ is certainly the leader of this team and he is leading from the front.

But do you think he can bring the 18th banner to the rafters of the Los Angeles Lakers? Let us know your thoughts about the same in the comments section down below.
