LEBRON JAMES put on a stunning show as the Los Angeles Lakers ended their four-game losing streak in style.
The 37-year-old LA star was great all night as he inspired his team to a 124-116 win over the Golden State Warriors.
It ends a dismal run for Los Angeles, who have finally found some consistency at both ends of the court and are now 28-35 going into the season.
James was the architect of the shock win thanks to a remarkable 56 points, with Steph Curry unable to find an answer for the underperforming Warriors.
LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was in the house to witness the win, three weeks after leading his team to Super Bowl LVI.
LeBron will remember that game well and was spotted dancing in the stands at SoFi Stadium as the Rams ended their long wait for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
And he was certainly keen to prove a point after the Lakers were booed after another poor performance earlier in the week.
James was spotted speaking to Stafford and his wife Kelly at court towards the end of the game – and had a clear message for the LA hero.
He said, “I can’t have you in the building and put on a show.”
LeBron was consistently the best player on the court, scoring an excellent 61 percent from the field and notching ten rebounds.
He played 39 minutes and eventually had a little help from the much-criticized Russell Westbrook, who came in with 20 points and four assists.
The Lakers are back in action Monday when they travel to San Antonio to face the Spurs.
