LeBron James (sore right goin) was noticeably quiet as he put up just 15 points (6-of-11 shooting) on Friday, but made up for it by facilitating the Laker offense with 12 assists to go with six boards.
We can likely chalk up James' quiet outing to that sore right groin. That said, the Nuggets have a lot to be concerned about if they get dismantled this easily with James on cruise control. For now, James is content to see his teammates deal the damage on the scoreboard, but expect him to be able to amp up his game on a moment's notice if he's ever needed to do so. Nuggets are going to be in for a tough challenge dealing with James and Anthony Davis and the rest of the Lakers squad.
