LeBron James hit another NBA milestone Friday (Saturday AEDT) as he and Anthony Davis fuelled the Los Angeles Lakers’ hard-fought 133-129 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
James scored 28 points and handed out 11 assists — passing former Lakers great Magic Johnson for sixth on the NBA’s all-time assists list — as Los Angeles weathered a late Bucks surge to emerge with the victory in coach Darvin Ham’s return to the city where he won a title in 2021 as an assistant to coach Mike Budenholzer.
It was also close in Boston, where Miami star Jimmy Butler returned from a seven-game injury absence and helped the Heat grab a 120-116 overtime victory that snapped the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics’ 10-game home winning streak.
