It’s been an up and down season to this point for the Lakers, but they’ve been on a roll as of late.
Following a five-game losing streak, the Lakers have won four of their last five to improve to 20-19. They’re coming off of a victory over the Kings in which LeBron James led the way with a game-high 31 points.
It marked the 16th time James has scored 30 or more points in a game this season, the most in the NBA. On his heels in second place is Hawks guard Trae Young with 15 30-point games.
Young had his highest-scoring game of the season earlier this week, going off for 56 points in a loss to the Trail Blazers.
Trae put up a career-high 56 PTS with 14 AST last night ❄️
