LeBron James’ first game in Cleveland in over two years was a doozy, as his Lakers beat the Cavaliers 115-108 and stayed perfect on the road. James’ ridiculous late scoring tear was the catalyst to their victory – 21 of his 46 points came in the fourth quarter.

The scoring outburst was apparently spurred on by a Cavaliers executive sitting in Cleveland’s socially-distanced first row. After James missed a 3-pointer late in the third quarter, the exec in question celebrated, clapping a little too loudly for James’ liking.

“I felt he was a little too excited about seeing me miss,” James said after the game. “I knew I had another quarter and the fourth quarter is my favorite. It’s a good thing for him I only come here once.”

ESPN.com reported that James was referencing Jason Hillman, the Cavaliers’ basketball chief of staff.

In the fourth quarter, James took ten shots, and made nine of them. At one point, he hit a fadeaway jumper, then turned and shook his head at the Cavaliers bench.

James spent 11 of his 18 NBA seasons with the Cavaliers, who drafted him with the first-overall pick in 2003. He left to join the Miami Heat, then returned in 2014 and won a championship in 2016. He left to join the Lakers in 2018.
