LeBron James played 38 minutes in Monday's meaningless game against the Nuggets and helped his team get a much-needed win, finishing with 29 points, one rebound, 12 assists, two blocks and five 3-pointers in the 124-121 win.
We're guessing Frank Vogel rolled with his guys late in this one since they weren't able to do it when LeBron sat out with a groin injury a couple days ago. There's a decent chance they'll rest their stars on Thursday against the Kings, but that's not set in stone. It was weird to see Bron grab just one rebound tonight, but his 3-point shooting kept his team in the game and allowed Kyle Kuzma to hit the big game-winner. The Lakers will enter the playoffs on Monday as the No. 1 seed in the West. Yesterday 12:01 am (EST)
