LAST TIME OUT: • LeBron James became the only player in NBA history to tally 10,000+ points, 10,000+ rebounds and 10,000+ assists as he recorded his 10,000th career
assist against the Suns. James finished the night with 31 points, seven rebounds, six assists and one block in 30 minutes. The performance marked his
28th game of the season with 30+ points.
DOUBLE 50 BURGER: LeBron James fi nished with 50 points, seven rebounds, six assists and one block in 36 minutes. The performance marked his second
50-point game of the season and the 14th such game of his career, tying Rick Barry for sixth most in NBA history. In his last two home games, James has
scored 106 points, the fi rst Lakers player to score 100+ across two consecutive home games in a single season since Kobe Bryant did so in April of 2007.
James is the sixth player in NBA history to score 50+ points in consecutive home games and the only player to do so after turning 30.
ULTIMATE WARRIOR: LeBron James fi nished with a season-high 56 points (19-31 FG, 6-11 3FG, 12-13 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, three assists and one
block in 38 minutes on 3/5 vs. Golden State, good for the sixth 50-point double-double of his career. James became the fi rst Lakers player to tally 55+ points
and 10+ rebounds since Shaquille O’Neal on March 6, 2000. He is just the fourth player in NBA history to record a 50-point game at age 37 or older, joining
Jamal Crawford, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. James scored 30 points in the second half, his highest scoring half since scoring 35 points in the second
half on April 6, 2018 at Philadelphia. He has now scored at least 30 points in 19 diff erent halves throughout his career
TWENTY FIVE A NIGHT: LeBron James put together a scoring streak unlike anything he has done since the 2007-08 season. James scored at least 25 points in 23 consecutive games,
good for the longest streak of his career. The last time he had such a streak was from 1/25/08-3/8/08 when he scored 25+ points in 21 consecutive games. His streak is tied for the longest such streak in the NBA this season
HALF A NIGHT, RUSS: Russell Westbrook had one of his strongest nights since joining the Lakers as he finished with 35 points (12-23 FG), four rebounds and fi ve assists on 1/28 against the Hornets. Westbrook scored 30 of his points in the second half, becoming the first Lakers player to have a 30-point half since Kobe Bryant scored 38 points in the final half of his career on 4/13/16 vs. Utah. The performance marked the seventh time that Westbrook
had scored 30+ in a single half and the fi rst time since scoring 30 points in the second half on 3/7/17 vs. Portland. Westbrook is just the seventh player this
season to tally a 30-point half.
I’M THE CAPTAIN AGAIN: For the sixth consecutive season and ninth time overall, LeBron James led all players in All-Star voting as he was named an All-Star for the 18th time in his career. James has been named a captain in every year since the NBA switched to the current format and improved to 5-0 as the team captain of the annual event. His 18th straight
selection ties him with Kobe Bryant for most all-time and his 18th overall selection ties him with Bryant for second-most
selections in NBA history. A three-time NBA All-Star Game MVP and the contest’s all-time leading scorer (413 points),
James made his NBA-record 18th All-Star start on February 20, 2022, fi nishing with 24 points, six rebounds, eight assists,
three steals and one block in 36 minutes.
10 ACROSS THE BOARDS: Dwight Howard added to his Hall of Fame resume as he passed Nate Thurmond for 10th place on the NBA’s all-time rebounds list
on 1/21 against the Orlando Magic. With his fi rst rebound of the night, Howard broke a tie with Thurmond to take sole possession of 10th place, recording
his 14, 465th career rebound.
PASSING THE ALL-TIME PASSERS: LeBron James continued his climb up the NBA’s all-time lists as he moved passed Oscar Robertson on the all-time
assists list on 1/9 vs. Memphis. With his seventh assist of the night, James passed Robertson for seventh all-time, passing out his 9,888th career assist.
James will now look to become just one of seven players all-time to tally 10,000 career assists.
DOUBLE-TRIPLE-DOUBLE: In the Lakers’ 132-123 win over the Houston Rockets, both LeBron James and Russell Westbrook recorded triple-doubles and
James added to his list of career milestones.
• LeBron James became the third player in NBA history to score 36,000 points as he fi nished with 32 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two
blocks in 39 minutes. James became the fi rst Lakers player since Kobe Bryant in 2013 to score 30+ points in fi ve consecutive games.
• Russell Westbrook tallied his seventh triple-double of the season with 24 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals. James and Westbrook became just the third pair of Lakers teammates to record a triple-double in the same game, and the fi rst since James and Lonzo Ball on 12/15/18.
CHRISTMAS TREE TOPPER: LeBron James appeared in his 16th career Christmas Day game, tying Kobe Bryant for most such games all-time, and put on
a show in front of the Crypto.com Arena crown. James fi nished the night with 39 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 40
minutes. With his third free throw of the night, James surpassed Bryant to become the all-time leading scorer on Christmas Day, totaling 422 career points
on the holiday. With his second fi eld goal of the night, James passed Bryant for most career fi eld goals on Christmas Day, now totaling 150 fi eld goals on
BEST IN THE WEST: LeBron James was awarded the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week award on December 13th, winning the weekly honor for
an NBA-record 65th time in his 19-year career. James averaged 28.3 points (.608 FG%, .417 3FG%), 8.0 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.8 blocks as
the Lakers fi nished the week 3-1 with victories over Boston, Oklahoma City and Orlando.
THIRD’S THE (MAGIC) WORD: The Lakers had their strongest defensive performance of the season as they dominated the third quarter against the Orlando
Magic on December 12, holding their opponent to just 10 points in the third frame.
• Los Angeles held the Magic to 37.5 percent (33-88 FG) from the fi eld, the lowest shooting percentage by a Lakers opponent this season
• The Lakers held Orlando to just 8.7 percent shooting (2-23 FG) in the third quarter, the worst shooting percentage by a Lakers opponent in a single
frame since December 14, 1999 vs. LA Clippers (.056, 1-18 FG, Second Quarter)
• Los Angeles scored 23 unanswered points in the third quarter, good for their longest scoring run of the season.

on 12/9 at Memphis. James fi nished the night with 20 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and two blocks in 37 minutes. He joins teammate Russell
Westbrook, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Jason Kidd as they only players to accomplish the feat.

Davis has tallied 30+ points, 10+ rebounds, 5+ steals, 4+ steals and 5+ blocks in a game. He became just the fourth player in NBA history to tally such
statistics, joining Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan.
• Carmelo Anthony led the second unit with 18 points (5-8 3FG), two rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes. It was the sixth time this season that he has
made at least fi ve three-pointers in a game. The only other seasons that Anthony had more games with 5+ triples was 2013-14 (8) and 2017-18 (7).
NO PLACE LIKE HOME: In his 19th season in the NBA, Carmelo Anthony is fi nding himself right at home with the Los Angeles Lakers. Through 32 regular
season home games at Crypto.com Arena, Anthony is shooting 44.6 percent (82-184 3FG) from three-point range on the Lakers home court. His shooting
percentage at home would rank third in the league among three-point shooters. Including road contests, he is currently shooting at a 39.2 percent clip on
