LeBron James' top 10 games of the 2021-22 season: No. 3

Late in the 2021-22 season, the Los Angeles Lakers’ fortunes were crumbling fast, and LeBron James was trying to salvage some of the team’s dignity.

One of those teams was the Washington Wizards, who the Lakers hosted on March 11.

Days earlier, James erupted for 56 points in a win over the eventual world champion Golden State Warriors.

On this night, he had something of an encore, going for 50 points on 18-of-25 overall shooting and 6-of-9 from 3-point land, seven rebounds and six assists.

James sparked a big third quarter in which the Lakers outscored Washington 37-23, and it propelled them to a 122-109 victory.

With Anthony Davis once again suffering a significant injury, the four-time MVP believed he had to score lots and lots of points to give his team a chance at victory each night – even against poor teams.
