LeBron James scored a 28-point triple-double as the Los Angeles Lakers dug deep to score a 129-123 overtime win against the New York Knicks on Tuesday.
James is now just 89 points away from surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time leading points scorer after another superb performance in his 20th season.
The 38-year-old passed two more milestones on Tuesday as he secured the third triple double of his career at Madison Square Garden.
James finished with 28 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, moving him ahead of both Mark Jackson and Steve Nash into fourth on the all-time rankings for assists.
“It’s amazing. Because that’s what I love to do — get my guys involved. Try to put the ball on time and on target through my career,” James said. “Any time you’re linked with the greats, it’s a super cool thing.”
