LeBron passes Chamberlain for fifth on all-time scoring list

LeBron James

With an and-one in the fourth quarter, James scored the 31,420th point of his career, passing Wilt Chamberlain for fifth place on the all-time scoring list. He erupted for 44 - the most by a Laker since Kobe Bryant dropped 60 in his final game more than two years ago. Portland has lost two straight to the Lakers after winning 16 in a row.

The Lakers leader has now revealed that he nearly cracked "last week" but got himself together and reminded him that it is a process that will take longer than just a few games.

"I'm doing my part congratulating one of the all-time greats on a great accomplishment".

Jordan is next up on the list at 32,292 career points. The Blazers got the best of L.A.in the season opener, also in Portland, and this tilt will mark their first matchup in L.A, and will also kickstart a six-game road trip for Portland, who are 3-1 outside of the Pacific Northwest.

LeBron shot 13-of-19 from the field, including 7-of-9 in the second half.

A floating jumper, a foul and a free throw in the fourth quarter of a tight game.

It was in the third quarter when James really took over. "You have to put hands on him, you have to put elbows into him, because of his size and strength".

JaVale McGee scored 20 points and Brandon Ingram added 17 in the Lakers' sixth win in seven games.

"You've got to win close games in this league", Blazers coach Terry Stotts told reporters afterward.

Walton said he believed Rondo suffered the fracture while making a steal in the fourth quarter off Jusuf Nurkic with 8:24 left. "It's something we have talked about".

"I had to regroup and remember this is a young team. I had to run it off to make sure it wasn't nothing insane".

With Rondo out, that means much more will fall on Lonzo Ball.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo had a game-high 31 points to go with nine rebounds and four assists, but Marc Gasol finished with 29 points and five rebounds while going 6 for 12 from 3-point range in the Grizzlies' 116-113 win over Milwaukee. Just as they're starting to play well, however, the Lakers will be without the services of veteran point guard Rajon Rondo for an extended period of time.

"It's tough", James said. He had 16 of the team's 38 points to help the Lakers build on their halftime lead.
