Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers Texas defeated the Houston Rockets 134-109 on the road.
The game was the third of a five-game road trip in which they won all three (the first two came against the Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves).
19-time All-Star LeBron James had a triple-double, posting an impressive stat line of 18 points, ten rebounds, 11 assists and one block in 29 minutes of playing time.
He now has 107 career triple doubles, tying Jason Kidd for fourth. All time list.
Via ESPN’s Dave McMenamin: “LeBron James (18 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) recorded his 107th career triple-double tonight, making his former Lakers assistant coach and Olympic teammate the 4th triple-double in NBA history.”
After finally passing Kidd, the next player to move up the list will be Magic Johnson (138).
Additionally, two-time MVP Nikola Jokic (105) is just two triple-doubles behind James and Kidd.
At 38 years old, James is still one of the top ten players in the league, and he has a great streak. Average 28.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 6.9 assists per contest in 51 games.
With the win, the Lakers improved to 40-38 in 78 games, the seventh seed in the Western Conference.
They are a half game back of the Los Angeles Clippers for the sixth seed (the last guaranteed playoff spot).
The Lakers play their next two games on the road against the Utah Jazz and Clippers before hosting the Phoenix Suns on April 7.
