"For me to be able to compete against him all those years and then for me to be able to share a jersey, the same jersey as him at this point".

Not one, not two, not three. but FOUR buckets, just the second time in his career - regular season or playoffs - that he went 4-4 or better in the final two minutes of a game.

In an interview with ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth shortly after the game, James himself couldn't hold back when evaluating the overall state of his game.

He provided stellar help defense on Denver's Nikola Jokic (24 points, 11 rebounds, six turnovers) while also guarding Jamal Murray (22 points, 10 rebounds) at times.

Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton was fined $15,000 on Wednesday for publicly criticizing the officiating following Monday's 143-142 overtime loss to the San Antonio Spurs. With 28 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, James became the first Lakers player with a 20-point triple-double since Kobe Bryant in December 2014. "So, I mean, we took care of business tonight".

A recent study found that counties that went for Trump saw higher rates of bullying as kids feel empowered to act "presidential". Alexander recalled in a written statement only that the woman in front of him had spoken to him and then changed seats.

Lonzo Ball scored 12 points with eight assists for the Lakers, while Josh Hart added 12 points in his second start of the season.

The win marks LeBron first triumph as a Lakers' Monarch.

The Lakers also survived despite their third straight game without suspended starters Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo.

Nuggets: Isaiah Thomas attended the game, but didn't play while recovering from off-season hip surgery. Down the stretch, Ball made a series of crucial defensive plays: poking free a steal, successfully guarding Jokic in the post and then drawing a charge on Jokic as the Lakers extended their late-game lead. Will Barton missed his third straight game with a hip injury.

Bryant watched the Lakers erase an eight-point fourth-quarter deficit with a 15-2 blitz in just over three minutes. Fans near courtside besides Bryant included actor Michael B. Jordan, Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig and National Football League rushing leader Todd Gurley. Los Angeles will still be without Rondo, who is serving a three-game suspension, and Ingram, who is suspended for four games, for their roles in a fight with Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets on Saturday. Bryant spoke to a group of season ticket holders before the game about his forthcoming book. "He was like, 'Good game, ' after the game so I was a little hyped". "I'm going to sleep it off and tomorrow have a better understanding of what's going on".
