LeBron James scores 36,000 points in his career as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Houston Rockets. The first time he played as a centre in his whole life. James scored 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and he also had 11 assists. This was his third triple-double of the season.
The 36-year-old was helped by his teammate, Russell Westbrook, who scored 24 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and set up 10 assists in a triple-double of his own. With a new “big three” of James, Westbrook, and Anthony Davis, the Lakers thought they could win a championship this season. They haven’t always been able to meet that standard, though.
Davis is out with a knee sprain, so the Lakers had to come up with a new way to play centre with James on Tuesday. In the Western Conference, the team is now 17-18 for the season. They are in seventh place, which is good for seventh place. Green, the second pick in this year’s draught, led the Houston Rockets with 24 points, two rebounds, and four assists. The Houston Rockets, who are 10-25, are the worst in the West with a record of that bad.
This is how it went down: Stephen Curry became the first player in NBA history to make 3,000 three-pointers in Golden State Warriors’ 86-89 loss to the Denver Nuggets. Two weeks ago, Curry broke Ray Allen’s record for most three-pointers in the NBA, but he couldn’t help his team win.
Asked by reporters, Curry said: “It was cool to reach that goal.” “That’s a pretty cool thing to do.”
In general, I’m pretty sure that every three I make will be a new record, so I’ll just enjoy it. Nuggets almost lost a 24-point half time lead. Nikola Jokic’s 22 points, 18 rebounds and five assists helped push them over the line, though they almost didn’t make it.
Only seven times this season have the Warriors lost. Steve Kerr’s team still has the best record in the NBA with a record of 26-7.
