Montrezl Harrell received high praise from Lakers teammate LeBron James for his performance this season.

James said Harrell has stepped up for Anthony Davis and ‘is getting better and better with every single game’.

“He’s getting better and better with every single game. We all have to step up in AD’s absence, and Trezz did that tonight. Trezz got it going in that fourth quarter,” James said about Harrell, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

Harrell had 17 points (8/11 shooting) and six rebounds against the Pacers, helping the Lakers earn the 100-105 victory.
