Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James put a show on in Cleveland on Monday night, just like he did for years with the Cavaliers. James recorded a triple-double, with 38 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds in a Lakers 131-120 upset victory over the Cavs.
The highlight of James’ performance came with a thunderous posterizing dunk he threw down on former teammate Kevin Love in the second quarter.

While the dunk was incredible, the reaction from Love to the play may have even topped it.

That’s good stuff.
LeBron also hit some really tough shots down the stretch to close out the victory for Los Angeles.

He’s still the King in Cleveland.
Update: LeBron told the media after the game that he hates that dunk had to be Love. James added, “I wish I could take those two points back and we’d still win the game by nine.”
