Davis and James went aerial in the third quarter of the 95-86 victory Friday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Lakers held a 52-45 lead with just over seven minutes remaining in the frame before the scoring sequence.
"LeBron was going downhill and I was rolling to the basket so it was a tough cover for Utah," Davis told reporters.
Lakers guard Avery Bradley bounced a pass to James at the start of the play. James caught the pass outside the 3-point arc, with his back to the basket and Jazz defender Jeff Green. The Lakers star then rolled to the right flank and dribbled into the lane. James drew several more defenders before lobbing a one-handed pass toward the rim.
The ball floated ahead for Davis, who jumped up and smashed it through the rim with his right hand.
"We are aggressive players no matter what," James said. "We have the ability to play from the perimeter and the ability to play in the paint. For me it doesn't matter who it is [defending]. If I have an angle, I'm going to try to make a play at the rim or finish around a defender."
James had a game-high 32 points, in addition to 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Lakers. Davis had 21 points, seven boards and five blocks in the win. Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 24 points.
