Written by Doug Rush

LeBron James is 37 years old, but don’t tell him that.

On Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors, LeBron dropped 56 points and helped the Los Angeles Lakers win 124-116.

On Friday night against the Washington Wizards, LeBron had to overcome Russell Westbrook shooting 2-for-11 and trailing at halftime to drag the Lakers back into the lead and essentially, he took over the game.

LeBron had 50 points for the Lakers. Yep; 50 points.

The Lakers won 122-109 and improved to 29-37 on the season, which is ninth in the Western Conference.
