Lakers Overwhelm Nuggets in Second Half, LeBron James Triple-Double Leads Lakers 114-93 VS Nuggets
Compared to how they’ve done on the road this season, the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled quite a bit this season at Staples Center, where they had collected four of their losses so far this season. But while it looked like the Denver Nuggets would again force the Lakers to feel the sting of a home loss early in Thursday night’s game, LeBron James delivered a dominant performance while the Lakers defense held down MVP contender Nikola Jokic to his worst game of the season as L.A. beat Denver, 114-93.
James had 27 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds, his second triple-double of the season, while Jokic had 13 points on six of 16 shooting, both season lows for Denver’s star center. The Lakers defense rarely allowed Jokic to isolate in the post, sending a second defender to his side and forcing the other Nuggets to beat them. In the first two and a half quarters, the Nuggets supporting cast was great but the Lakers outscored the Nuggets 37-17 in the third quarter, including a 15-0 run that began in the third and extended to the 4th.
LeBron is the better player, he’s on a better team. LeBron passes Wilt for 3rd in All-Time Field Goals.

In addition to dominating the action for the Lakers and leading them to a home victory, LeBron James made some more history in L.A.’s first game back in Staples Center in nearly two weeks. With a basket in the first half of Thursday night’s win, James passed fellow Lakers legend Wilt Chamberlain for No. 3 on the NBA’s All-Time list for field goals made. James now only trails Karl Malone (13,528) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (15,837) on the NBA’s All-Time list for made field goals.
