LeBron James provided a unique event in the NBA on Tuesday evening (local time). The star player of Los Angeles Lakers was good for a triple-double against Oklahoma City Thunder, which means that he has now succeeded against all teams.
34-year-old James won 25 points, eleven rebounds and ten assists against the Thunder, thereby helping the Lakers to win a 112-107 win. It was already the 86th triple-double in his career, with which he is fifth in the all-time ranking.
The forward surpassed with his record Russell Westbrook, who was the first player two years ago to score double digits in three categories against 29 NBA teams. Like James, Westbrook has yet to reach that fact against the Thunder, the team he played for this season.
James scatters this season with 'triple doubles'. It was already his fifth in the first fourteen matches. In that period he succeeded in the duels with Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls even three games in a row.
Because of the victory over the Thunder, the Lakers are leading the Western Conference. Of the fourteen games, only two were lost. The last five matches all resulted in a victory.
