LeBron’s record night tows Lakers past Blazers


The Los Angeles Lakers pick up their sixth win in 7 games as LeBron James erupts for 44 points



MANILA, Philippines – LeBron James unleashed 44 points to move up to 5th spot in the NBA’s all-time scoring list as the Los Angeles Lakers downed the Portland Trail Blazers, 126-117, for their fourth straight win on Wednesday, November 14 (Thursday, November 15, Manila time) at the Staples Center.

James – who finished just an assist-shy of a triple-double after also tallying 10 rebounds and 9 dimes – amassed 31,420 points to surpass Lakers legend Wilt Chamberlain (31.419) in the league’s all-time scoring leaders.

Playing his most impressive game yet as a Laker, James unloaded 28 points in the second half and got past Chamberlain on a three-point play with 3:55 minutes left in the game. 

JaVale McGee also delivered 20 points and Brandon Ingram scored 17 in the Lakers’ sixth win in 7 games to improve to an 8-6 record.


Damian Lillard paced the Blazers with 31 points and 11 assists and CJ McCollum also had 23 points. 

The Blazers fired 9 three-pointers in the first half and led by 13 in the 2nd quarter before James fueled a 27-10 outburst to tow the Lakers to a 59-55 halftime advantage.

Portland slipped to a 10-4 record.
