‘King’ big explosion, 48 points including 20 points in the 4th quarter … NBA Lakers beat Houston

‘King’ LeBron James scored 48 points, including 20 points in the 4th quarter alone, and the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA beat the Houston Rockets by 8 points.

The Lakers defeated Houston 140-132 in the 2022-2023 season NBA regular league home game held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California on the 17th (Korean time).

The Lakers, who went 20-24, were in 13th place in the Western Conference.

It is one and a half games behind the Portland Trail Blazers (21-22), who are ranked 10th, which is classified as the marginal line for advancing to the playoffs (PO) as they can participate in the play-in tournament.

On the other hand, Houston, who went 10-34, suffered 11 consecutive losses and could not get out of the bottom of the West.

James did a great job recording 48 points, 9 assists and 8 rebounds.

James, who scored more than 38,000 points in the regular league for the second time in the previous game against the Philadelphia 76ers, closely followed the legendary center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who dominated the 1970s and 1980s.

The record of Abdul-Jabbar, who ranked first in this category, was 38,387 points, 315 points behind James (38,072 points).

Based on James’ average points scored this season (29.7 points), he is expected to surpass Abdul-Jabbar’s record in 11 games.

Russell Westbrook, who came off the bench, also supported James with 24 points.

In Houston, second-year center Alfren Sengun struggled with 33 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists.

Rookie forward Jabari Smith Jr., who was selected third overall last year, scored 14 points, but could not stop James’ performance.

At the end of the 2nd quarter, James scored 6 points in 2 minutes and the Lakers, who led 73-61 in the first half, allowed Sengun to pursue 10 points only in the 3rd quarter.

With the start of the 4th quarter, the Lakers again ran away with a double-digit score as James drove 9 points through free throws, 3 points, and breakthroughs.

Sengun and Smith Jr. scored 10 points in 4 minutes from 6 minutes before the end of the game, leading the final chase, but Westbrook’s dunk shot and James’ mid-range shot cut the rim, and the Lakers took a 4-point lead 50 seconds before the end.

James then made all four free throws to finish the game. 헤라카지노
