These last two days prove that the NBA is still run by Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and LeBron James.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Washington Wizards
Los Angeles Lakers claimed their 29th victory of the season against the Wizards and all thanks to LeBron James. However, the result is not enough for the Lakers to keep their title hopes alive as they’re still 9th with .439.
On the other hand, the Wizards are 11th in Eastern Conference and the play-offs spot seems a file away from them.
However, if LeBron keeps on scoring such huge points, it won’t be a difficult task for the Lakers to finish in the top 8.
