  • LeBron James

In this picture, James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers stands on the court during their game against the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California, Nov. 10, 2018.

Chamberlain normed 30.1 points in his 15 National Basketball Association seasons and holds the league record for the highest scoring average in a season with a whopping 50.4 points.

LeBron James propelled himself up to fifth in the NBA's all-time scoring list as he led the LA Lakers to a 126-117 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Portland's four-game winning streak ended, but the Blazers are still on top of the Northwest Division. After a storming start to the season, the Raptors looked like they could run away with the Eastern Conference.

James has been the leading scorer in both meetings against Portland this season. Jusuf Nurkic had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Aminu scored 18 points.

The Lakers had switched to a bigger starting lineup when Portland and Los Angeles met the second time.

He was able to follow that up with a game-changing play in last Sunday's 107-106 win over the Atlanta Hawks where he able to get his fingertips on a potentially game-winning layup by rookie point guard Trae Young in the final seconds of the fourth quarter.


James, who has missed a few clutch free-throws this season, is shooting just 73.6 percent from the free-throw line entering Wednesday.

"I had to sit back and remind myself, 'You knew what you were getting yourself into.' This process has been good for me".

James is averaging 27.6 points and could surpass Jordan, who has an 867-point advantage in the all-time scoring list, for 4th place midway through the season. Michael Beasley didn't play, but the veteran was back in uniform after missing several recent games for undisclosed personal reasons.

Rondo did not speak with reporters in the locker room.

"If I would have come down and my leg would have went to the side immediately, I think it would have been a lot worse, but I kind of caught it", he said.

"Just continue to work on it", James said at Wednesday's shootaround, via Lakers Nation. "I had to run it off to make sure it wasn't nothing insane".
