LeBron James Leads Lakers Past Knicks, Kareem's Record Soon to Fall

The Lakers celebrated against the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden after overtime 129:123, and the most deserving was Lebron James who achieved a triple-double with 28 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists. The "King" is getting closer to breaking the record for the number of points in the NBA (38387), which is held by Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

He is close to 89 points and if you look at his average of 27.2 points per game this season, the record could fall against the Milwaukee Bucks on February 9th. “I didn’t get to this point in my career by thinking about records or how many points I have, whatever the case might be,” James said via ESPN. “I just play the game the right way.

I approach the game every night only trying to be a triple threat by scoring, rebounding, assisting, defending, and may the chips fall where they may”. “He’s just doing it all,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said.

“That’s what great players do. That’s what all-time greats do, and he’s right up there at the top of the list with all of them”. In New York, the Lakers dropped the triumph in the regular part, because they had a four-point lead a minute before the end.

However, in overtime, thanks to an excellent collective game, they achieved an important victory in the fight for the play off. In addition to James, Davis stood out in the winning team with 27, while Brunson was the most effective player in the game with 37 points for the New York Knicks.

Nikola Vucevic was excellent for the Chicago Bulls, but even that didn't help his team avoid a 108:103 loss at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. He had 23 points and 14 rebounds and was the best on his team.

Kawhi Leonard led the Los Angeles Clippers with 33 points, and Norman Powell chipped in with 27 points as they defeated the Chicago Bulls 108-103. Another dominant game was shown by Giannis Antetokoumpo. He had 33 points and 18 rebounds in Milwaukee's 124:115 victory over Charlotte. The Miami Heat is on the wings of Buttler, who scored 23 points and beat Cleveland 100:97.
