LeBron James ticks off another National Basketball Association milestone

Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

It was a historic night for James as he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth on the all-time National Basketball Association scoring list midway through the fourth quarter with 39 points.

However, the Los Angeles franchise have been told not to worry about any outside noise.

Elsewhere, LeBron James is in action for the Los Angeles Lakers as they face the Portland Trail Blazers, and Kawhi Leonard's Toronto Raptors face the Detroit Pistons.

In his first three games with the Lakers, Chandler has been a major asset off the bench for the team by averaging 3.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, and 1.0 steal in 22.6 minutes per game. The latter under the 14-time All-Star had made four straight NBA Final appearances, but his current team are anything but title contenders.

The Lakers have now won five of their last six games and James said he is encouraged by what he's seen from the young players as of late.

James entered Wednesday's game needing 39 points to pass Wilt Chamberlain for fifth on the NBA's all-time scoring list. You know how I am.

One of the things that is guaranteed to happen in a new Call of Duty title is that Nuketown will eventually make an appearance. "Comrades! Experience architecture, culture, and warmth of locals that's unlike anywhere else", reads an Activision tweet.

"When I'm able to do what I love to do, do it at this level, even being mentioned with the greats who have played this game - it just always brings me back to my home town of Akron", James told ESPN after the game. He scored 16 points in the third quarter and 12 in the fourth, never allowing Portland to make a final run during the Lakers' fourth consecutive win. "And then my coaching staff and my teammates throughout these 16 years so far that's gotten me to this point". Just as they're starting to play well, however, the Lakers will be without the services of veteran point guard Rajon Rondo for an extended period of time.

LeBron James now only trails Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list.

"This process has been good for me", James said.

Lillard logged his first double-double of the season against Boston, posting 19 points and 12 assists. "I just have to continue being patient".

James has been at his usual best, leading the team in points (26.4) and assists (7.1), but the Lakers needed help in the middle, which necessitated the need to grab Chandler, and he is making a world of difference to the Lakers.
