In a tense game on Friday, LeBron James of the LA Lakers pulled off an impressive windmill dunk against the Memphis Grizzlies. 

After the dunk, James taunted Ja Morant, who was sidelined for the season due to injury. Morant didn't take it lightly and pushed James in response, causing a timeout to be called.

The Lakers were leading 121-118 with seven seconds left when James made a critical steal and finished with the dunk. This play helped seal the Lakers' victory in a game they needed to win to improve their play-in tournament seeding.

The game was closer than expected, with the shorthanded Grizzlies keeping pace with the Lakers. GG Jackson led the Grizzlies with 31 points, followed by Scotty Pippen Jr. and Jake LaRavia, who both scored 28 points.

Despite the strong performance from the Grizzlies, LeBron James proved to be the difference-maker for the Lakers. He scored 12 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter and sealed the win with his late-game heroics.

With this victory, the Lakers improved to 46-35, temporarily securing the eighth seed. Their playoff hopes hinge on their performance in the remaining games and the results of other teams in the Western Conference.
