LeBron James Makes NBA History In Loss To Clippers

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James made NBA history by becoming the first-ever player to score 40 or more points against every franchise in the league. James scored 46 points, but it was not enough to lift the Lakers to victory, as they fell to their crosstown rival L.A. Clippers, 133-115, on Tuesday night.

In addition to the feat, King James also put together the best shooting night of his career. James knocked down a career-best 9 three-pointers and became the first player over 35 years old to make 9+ triples in a game.

It's honestly insane what James continues to do in his Hall of Fame career. The 4-time NBA champ is also just 178 points away from breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's all-time scoring record and he should be able to make history anytime within the next couple of weeks.

James has also been on a tear since he turned 38 years old. Since celebrating his birthday on December 30th, the 4-time league MVP has averaged 36.1 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 7.8 assists, while shooting 53.3 percent from the field.

Though James has been setting individual milestones left and right, he certainly hasn't been happy with his team's performances. Despite his efforts, the Lakers sit at just 13th in the Western Conference with a 22-26 record. Los Angeles has also lost a number of close contests over the past week that certainly could have gone their way.

The good news for the Lakers is that James' partner-in-crime Anthony Davis is reportedly set to return on Wednesday when they take on the San Antonio Spurs. Davis has been out for over a month due to a foot injury.
