Everyone in the NBA knows that closing out playoff games is one of the hardest things to do. However, it didn't seem to be a problem for Anthony Davis and LeBron James after they stepped up big time to help the Los Angeles Lakers eliminate the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their first-round series.

With that said, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was in awe of what the superstars were able to accomplish, emphasizing that there's no doubt in his mind they are “two of the best players in the game” today.

While it may sound cliché, it's not unfounded. After all, Anthony Davis and LeBron James combined for 79 markers in the match — which is 60 percent of the Lakers' points in their 131-122 win.

Davis led all scorers with 43 points, to go along with nine rebounds and four assists. He was extremely efficient for the Purple and Gold, finishing on 14-of-18 shooting from the field and 4-of-6 from deep.

On the other hand, LeBron finished with a 30-point triple-double, which is a first for a Lakers player since James Worthy in 1988. The King had 36 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, while shooting 73.7 percent overall and 5.1 percent from the 3-point territory.

The Lakers are one of the favorites to win the Larry O'Brien trophy this 2019-20, and with the way LeBron and AD played to close out the Blazers, it's no wonder why. The job is far from over for the franchise, but Frank Vogel and Co. can rest easy knowing that they have two superstars who can perform and deliver in high-pressure situations.
