Anthony Davis scored 34 points during the Los Angeles Lakers’ fifth victory, 112-107, over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
James is fifth in NBA history with 86 triple-doubles. The other four players ahead of him are Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, Lakers great Magic Johnson, and Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd but hadn’t done it against 30 different teams.
James posted 25 points, 11 rebounds, and ten assists to boost the NBA-leading Lakers.
Anthony Davis, with seven rebounds, four assists, four steals, and two blocks, the Lakers’ dynamic duo proved too much to handle for the Thunder.
But yes, Thunder did manage to score through few slip-ups. And it was not an easy win.
Dennis Schroder scored 31 points off the bench for OKC, while Danilo Gallinari added 25 points and six rebounds.
The two teams will again face each other on Saturday.
At 12-2 through the first 14 games of the 2019-20 NBA season, the Lakers are playing at a high level as their offense slowly improves. With Los Angeles protecting their homecourt, they embark on a four-game road trip now.
We wish James and Lakers team for success in the future.
