King’ LeBron James (39, LA Lakers) entered the countdown to break the NBA’s all-time scoring record. If he adds 36 points, he will surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who holds this record.
James recorded 27 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists while playing 39 minutes and 37 seconds in the 2022-23 NBA regular season away game against the New Orleans Pelicans held at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA on the 5th (Korean time).
James made 10 2-point shots, 1 3-point shot, and 6 free throws to the rim that day, but his field goal success rate was only 38% (11 successful 29 attempts).
James, who is ranked second in the NBA’s all-time scoring list, added 27 points and narrowed Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) to 36 points with a career total of 38,352 points. 토토사이트
James, who is recording an average of 30 points per game this season, is expected to set a record against Oklahoma City Thunder on the 8th or Milwaukee Bucks on the 10th.
Despite James’ performance, the Lakers lost 126-131 to New Orleans, ending their three-game winning streak. Laker’s season record was 25 wins and 29 losses.
James said, “I just wanted to win the game (rather than trying for a record)” and said, “I’m tired, but I have to prepare for the next game.”
On the other hand, New Orleans took the Lakers and broke the 10-game losing streak. New Orleans, who recorded 27 wins and 27 losses, was placed ninth in the Western Conference.
Brandon Ingram played a big role with 35 points, and CJ McCollum (23 points), Trey Murphy III (21 points), Jonas Balansunas (18 points, 14 rebounds), and Jose Alvarado (18 points) also contributed to the attack.
