After the loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas Day, the Los Angeles Lakers returned to victory this Tuesday night, 132-123, in their visit to the Houston Rockets. With the victory, the Angelinos managed to cut a streak of five losses in a row that took them away from playoff spots.
In this game, LeBron James played center for the first time in his 19-year career. The team had to make some changes to its lineup due to some players being absent due to injuries or due to COVID-19 protocols.
This was the fifth game in a row for LeBron James with at least 30 points scored. LeBron's good individual performances were finally backed by a team win. Not only that, but he also broke a new record in his career by surpassing 36 thousand points, becoming the third player with that many units in NBA history.
