NBA: LeBron James career record is not enough for the Lakers

by archysport

What a duel between LeBron James and Ja Morant! The Lakers have been in control for a long time thanks to a career high from James, but Memphis turns the game in the fourth quarter. Mainly thanks to Morant, who also has a career record.

Memphis Grizzlies (22-14) – Los Angeles Lakers (17-19) 104:99 (BOXSCORE)

Like LeBron, the youngster was very hot from a distance. Both marked personal bests from a distance, the Lakers star sank 8 threes (in 14 attempts) on the way to 37 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists. LeBron, who will turn 37 on Thursday, has never had more triples in one game – he also sank eight threes twice.

The support from teammates was, however, limited. Russell Westbrook (16, 12 assists and 10 rebounds) and Malik Monk (15) were the only other guests in double digits. Far too little came from Carmelo Anthony (5, 1/8 threesome) or Talen Horton-Tucker (4, 2/7 FG), for example.

Mainly to stop Morant. The 22-year-old sank 6/7 long-range throws and topped LeBron in terms of points. His 41 points (13/27 FG, plus 10 rebounds) represented a season high. He had a large share in a 17: 7 run, with which Memphis ended the game and thus completed the comeback after a long time behind.

For the youngster there was a hail of MVP calls from the home fans, and for a long time he was largely on his own. Ultimately, Desmond Bane finished the game with 20 points (6/18 FG), Jaren Jackson Jr. got 15 points.
