LeBron had 30 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds in the Windy City.
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, at 34-years old and in year 17 of his career, just notched his third straight triple-double in their 118-112 victory over the Chicago Bulls. "All hail the king". To put things in perspective, no Lakers player has achieved that feat since Magic Johnson had four in a row in 1987. James first did it in December 2017, while with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In his first pair of games back, Kuzma logged 19 minutes in an overtime win over the Mavs, then 16 minutes against the Spurs, but that number will jump to 26 against the Chicago Bulls, Lakers coach Frank Vogel said.
Twitter wasn't the only place where James was dunking on haters. "Being a triple-threat on the floor".
Kris Dunn had an impressive offensive effort going 4-of-5 from field goal for nine points, but foul trouble (5) kept him at 17 minutes. They've been doing that. Defensively he's been far more active. And then scoring. Just trying to read the defense, pick my spots, and just trying to be aggressive.
"It comes with team success for me", James said.
"I mean, it is".
In many ways, James was forced to carry the Lakers in the first half even while they were falling into a 19-point hole.
Davis was relatively quiet, posting 15 points, seven rebounds and three blocks.
"Just confidence", Kuzma said. Growing up, he idolized Rose, who went on to become the league's youngest MVP in history, while working hard to make a name for himself. Chicago gave Los Angeles problems in the first half before the Lakers stormed back in the fourth quarter and took their first lead with 8:53 remaining.
Charlotte's Devonte Graham scored a game-high 35 points off the bench, including two game-winning free throws with 1.7 seconds to play in overtime, as the Hornets edged visiting in 122-120.
"Ya lady embarrassed to be with you", James said. "We have small goals in mind and that's to be the best defensive team in the league every night". He has a relationship with everybody on the team.
