Four-time MVP LeBron James had some exciting words for everyone after the Lakers' dominant victory over the Toronto Raptors.
The Lakers crushed the Toronto Raptors 122-112. D'Angelo Russell and Dennis Schroder scored 28 and 23 points, respectively, to secure the win.
Despite Anthony Davis' poor performance, the Lakers managed to win thanks to the outstanding performances by D'Angelo, Schroder and Austin Reaves.
D'Angelo returned to the court after missing six games due to a sprained right ankle. He scored 16 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and finished with nine assists and five rebounds.
"I was just flowing, honestly. Obviously this is my first game back and just itching to get back on the floor, so to get back out there and perform and be back out there with those guys," Russell said after the game.
After the game, LeBron shared his reaction on Twitter. "Man I love this team!!!" LeBron wrote on Twitter.
James has been sidelined since the end of February with a foot injury and will be reevaluated in approximately three weeks. He is expected to return on March 23rd, at the earliest.
The Lakers are currently 4-2 without LeBron and currently stand ninth in the Western Conference. They are expected to make the playoffs via automatic qualification.
