LeBron James showed out for the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night as they took down Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in what turned out to be an action-packed thriller. The Bucks did all they could to defend their home turf against LeBron and Co., but in the end, it was the Lakers who prevailed in an absolute nail-biter, 133-129.

Lakers icon Magic Johnson was one of the first to congratulate the team for their performance on Friday night. The Hall of Famer expressed his excitement in a series of tweets, which pretty much represents how all Lakers fans are feeling right about now:

Magic is clearly overjoyed by the victory, and he believes that this could be a monumental moment for the Lakers and their season.

Friday's win in Milwaukee was the first night of an extended road trip for the Lakers. They play their next five games on the road starting with a matchup against the Washington Wizards on Sunday.
