LeBron James received high praise from his teammate in the Los Angeles Lakers Wesley Matthews.

Matthews had nothing but good words to say about James, calling him an ‘engine’.

“He’s an engine …. it’s amazing what he can do and how he can control a game,” Matthews said about James, via Mike Trudell of Spectrum Sportsnet.

James had 28 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the Lakers past the Thunder in an overtime thriller on Monday (112-119). Meanwhile, Matthews had 16 points in 26 minutes of action after missing the last four games of the Lakers.
