B-Ball genius LeBron James made history on Friday October 28, but could do close to nothing to stop the LA Lakers’ horrible start to the season from proceeding.
James amassed 28 points – seven bounce back, five assists and four steals – for his 1,135th career 20-point game, passing Karl Malone on the untouched list for the most 20-point games in the regular season.
A characteristic of his significance is that the four-time MVP has never found the middle value of less than 20 points in a season since being drafted in 2003.
Meanwhile, the Lakers stay winless, however, matching their most horrendously terrible beginning to a season in 65 years after falling to 0-5 following Friday’s 111-102 loss to the Minneapolis Timberwolves.
Rudy Gobert wrapped up with 22 points and 21 bounce back, while Anthony Edwards scored 29 points – 16 of which came in the second from last quarter – and Karl-Anthony Towns 21.
Russell Westbrook fell off the seat for the Lakers to score 18 points, eight rebounds and three assists.
“I think our offense is harming us right now. Defensively once again, we had a great game plan. We went out and competed, gave ourself a chance. Couple possessions here, couple possessions there didn’t go our way, but just keep hammering on.” James said.
