Bronny James Scores Go-Ahead Bucket in Front of LeBron to Lead Sierra Canyon to Victory

Bronny James celebrated with LeBron after winning the go-ahead bucket for Sierra Canyon.

Bronny James won game MVP after scoring Sierra Canyon's go-ahead bucket in a victory over his dad's alma mater St. Vincent-St. Mary High School on Saturday. 

In the 59-56 win, 15-year-old Bronny solidified Sierra Canyon's lead with less than a minute remaining after stealing an inbounds pass and hitting a layup. LeBron James, who watched Bronny in-person for the first time in a Sierra Canyon uniform on the Lakers' off-night, celebrated accordingly.

Bronny finished 7-of-10 from the field and tallied 15 points on the night in one of his best performances of the season before 13,000 attendees. He helped lead his team past St. Vincent-St. Mary in front of the school's "Fab Five," which was the team's nickname for its starting lineup during LeBron's tenure.
