LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world.

LeBron finished the game with 18 points, two rebounds, and six assists in 28 minutes. "They came out and just hit us right in the mouth", James told reporters. "We got off to an unbelievable start".

"In my experience, unfortunately, most of the time when a player like Kawhi sits out, that team ends up winning", Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "We tried to explain that that's part of how this works, but it doesn't seem like we took that to heart".
