The Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in a dogfight with the Phoenix Suns in Game 4 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series.

The highlight of the first half came when guard Alex Caruso threw the ball off the backboard to LeBron James for a dunk to finish a beautiful fast break.

After taking some time to recover from a severe high ankle sprain, James is starting to look a lot like his old self. As he did in Game 3, he attacked the basket pretty consistently in Game 4, both in transition and in the half court.

The Lakers trailed the Suns 54-50 at halftime, and James led the way with 11 points, three rebounds and four assists.

A win today would give L.A. a commanding 3-1 lead and an opportunity to wrap up what days ago looked to be a tough series in just five games.
