LeBron James moved closer to breaking the historic record

(Michael Conroy / Associated Press)

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Indiana Pacers 112-111 at home, overcoming a 12-point hole in the fourth quarter, as LeBron James moved closer to breaking the historic record and becoming the most prolific scorer in NBA history.

James started the game with a 38,387-point advantage over Kareem Abdul Jabbar, the all-time leading scorer. In the 33 minutes he played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, "The King" James recorded 26 points, 7 assists, and 7 rebounds to help the Los Angeles side win.

Coach Darvin Ham informed the player that he would need to perform some warm-up exercises before deciding whether or not to play, and the 38-year-old leapt to the table after expressing uncertainty about his participation in this game owing to a sore left ankle. Despite being injured, Anthony Davis led his squad in scoring with 31 points and 14 rebounds.

The Lakers rallied after being overwhelmed by the Pacers.

In the opening three quarters, Indiana won the game. The lead was 35-30 at the end of the first session, and it expanded to 67-54 by the time halftime rolled around. Tyrese Haliburton, who finished with 26 points, and Aaron Nesmith, who scored 24 points, were both quick and accurate, and the Lakers, who have struggled at times this season, were powerless to stop them.

The Los Angeles team finally managed to take the lead in the game thanks to a LeBron 3-pointer with 2:35 remaining in the game, and Anthony Davis made the game-winning basket with 35 seconds left. The Pacers led by 12 points at the end of the third quarter and by 14 at the start of the fourth (98-84).

As a result, the Los Angeles Lakers improved to 25-28 overall for the season, and LeBron made another attempt to beat the old record. Based on projections, he may succeed on Tuesday.
