Tyson Chandler says he chose Lakers over going to Warriors

LeBron James is now the No. 5 all-time scorer in National Basketball Association history, as he passed Wilt Chamberlain late in his 44-point night against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo had a game-high 31 points to go with nine rebounds and four assists, but Marc Gasol finished with 29 points and five rebounds while going 6 for 12 from 3-point range in the Grizzlies' 116-113 win over Milwaukee.

Walton could opt to use Ingram for some minutes at backup point guard as well.

After muscling past his defender for an and-1 floater, LeBron James stepped to the foul line and sunk his free throw, making league history in the process.

Portland hit nine three-pointers in the first half and led by 13 midway through the second quarter, but James led a 27-10 run to a 59-55 halftime lead.

"I haven't changed anything outwardly, but you know me".

James scored 28 points and Rondo had 17 off the bench in the win in Portland earlier this month, snapping a 16-game losing streak against the Trail Blazers.

Oil producers see oversupply, eye cutting output
There have also been signs that renewed United States sanctions on Iranian oil exports may have a softer-than-expected impact. Oil prices rose by about one per cent on Monday after top exporter, Saudi Arabia , announced a cut in supply for December.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be his leadership on the court, especially Lonzo Ball, who the front office hoped would learn from Rondo.

"Anytime my name is mentioned with some of the greats who have played this game, I'll always think back to my hometown, how far I've come", James told reporters. "One of the greatest Lakers that ever played the game".

After recently passing Dirk Nowitzki (31,187 points) on the all-time scoring list, James surpassed Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) for fifth.

"I mean, he's huge", James said talking about Chandler's effect on the team.

As dominant as LeBron James was in this game, he did have some help. For the first time all year, LeBron James actually played up to his reputation of being the "Best player in the World". Jusuf Nurkic had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Al-Farouq Aminu scored 18 points.

As we have seen in the first few games with the Lakers, Walton has elected to go with Chandler at the five to close out games. His play has been huge in the frontcourt especially late in games with his stable play on the glass and in the paint in key moments.
