Video: Lakers’ LeBron James hits Anthony Davis with the laser tip pass for the jam
The King had his laser sights on during his return to South Beach on Friday, locating The Brow down low for an easy two-handed jam. With under four minutes remaining in regulation in the Lakers’ tight road game against the Miami Heat at the AmericanAirlines Arena, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope bricked his long distance attempt at the left wing.
James, however, was in the right place at the right time for the offensive board. Seeing his teammate Davis in prime position underneath, LeBron opted to tip the ball right in his direction instead of corralling the rebound.

Davis knew just what to do with the rack, rocking the rim with a hard slam while getting contact from Derrick Jones Jr. for the hoop plus the harm. The Lakers went on to win the ball game, 113-110, to extend their streak to five consecutive games.
Davis finished with a solid double-double of 33 points and 10 boards, while James was a rebound shy of a triple-double, tallying 28 markers, 12 assists, and nine rebounds.
