Fresh off of a one-game suspension, LeBron James propelled the Los Angeles Lakers to a 124-116 overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night with some clutch shot making. James had 17 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and he connected on three 3s over the final seven minutes to secure the much-needed win for L.A. At one point late in the fourth quarter he scored seven straight points as the Lakers came back from a 12-point deficit to force OT. In the extra frame, he single-handedly outscored the Pacers, 8-4.
