James scored 26 points, setting a new record for the most points in the NBA combining regular season and postseason with 44,157, beating Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 44,149 points.
James is also vying for another Abdul-Jabbar record – the career record for regular-season games with 38,387 points – as he is closing in on 36,526 points.
“We had an opportunity to win a big game tonight. But in all my career, any time I’ve been linked with some of the greats, I’ve always just been in awe,” the 37-year-old Lakers star said about his performance.
Klay Thompson led the Warriors with his 33 points, while Stephen Curry contributed 24 points and 8 assists at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
