VIDEO: Lakers’ LeBron James left hanging for the high five; Jared Dudley tried to save him
James, too, handed out some high-fives but was left hanging by head coach Frank Vogel. Veteran forward Jared Dudley tried to save him but was a tad bit too late — but at least he tried.
Peep the clip below and notice how James just decided to give himself a high-five after he was left hanging by Vogel. Dudley saw all of this transpire and offered James a high-five of his own.

Sure enough, Dudley was quick to react on Twitter about his almost-heroic save.
Never leave a brotha hanging! 😂🤝 https://t.co/BeApEJw5r2

The Lakers are back on track after losing to the Raptors on Sunday. In their 123-115 win over the Suns, James chipped in 19 points, seven rebounds, and 11 assists. LA also improved to 8-2 in the young season.
Other contributors include Anthony Davis who had 24-12, Danny Green who had 14 points including three 3-pointers, and Kyle Kuzma who finished with 23 points including two consecutive 3-pointers near the two-minute mark which helped seal the deal for the Lakers. Slowly and surely, Kuzma is returning to old form after missing the first few games of the 2019-20 season due to an injury.
The Lakers will head back to Staples Center for a four-game homestand starting with the short-handed Golden State Warriors squad on Wednesday.
