WATCH: LeBron James throws down thunderous dunk

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers need to get on the winning track if they’re going to earn a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Struggling a ton recently, James and Co. took on a bottom-feeding New Orleans Pelicans team Wednesday night. And it looks like the King was more than up for the task.

Just check out this absolutely thunderous dunk James threw down in transition — beating many unsuspecting Pelicans defenders in the process.

James dropped 14 points and eight dimes in the first half alone. The game’s best player just recently said he’s activating playoff mode a bit early. While we didn’t see it earlier in the week, he’s come to play Wednesday.
