The Los Angeles Clippers did not have it early in their game against the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night at Walt Disney World.

LeBron James and Co. opened up a 12-point lead after the first quarter against Kawhi Leonard’s squad. That’s when King James took flight against the reigning NBA Finals MVP.

Check out this massive dunk James threw down over Leonard.

Heck, Leonard knew that it would have been foolish to attempt a contest of James. That was a business decision right there. This represented just James’ second bucket of the game on his fifth attempt. Though, he set the stage with five first quarter assists.

The Lakers head into the resumption of the NBA season 5.5 games ahead of the Clippers for the top spot in the Western Conference with eight regular-season games remaining. A win here would pretty much cement the top seed.
