Ahead of the game, James tweeted the game was going to be "UNREAL" and that he "can't even front". He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).
James is now averaging 35.6 minutes per game. James, still engrossed in the game, barely acknowledged the milestone after receiving hugs from several teammates. "So to pass him in anything, especially scoring, would be something that we aren't going to see very often". Seldom-used backup point guard Alex Caruso had 15 points and six rebounds in an outstanding performance in just his eighth National Basketball Association game of the season.More news: Captain Marvel - Movie Review - Captain Marvel Review
The Lakers have lost three in a row and five of their past six.
After Tuesday's loss to the Clippers, James indicated that monitoring his playing time would be a possibility moving forward, but he rejected the idea of shutting himself down for the remaining month of the schedule. But that also goes for the many members of the media who are still covering the Lakers, although they've probably gotten used to missing the postseason.More news: Las Vegas NASCAR: Logano resists Keselowski in Penske one-two
Rondo told the Los Angeles Times after that game that he likes sitting in courtside seats during games but that they're just typically full at Staples Center.
