LeBron ticks off another NBA milestone

LeBron James created a slice of NBA history with a triple-double against Oklahoma

LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double against every team in the league during the Los Angeles Lakers 112-107 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

James posted 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on Tuesday to boost the NBA-leading Lakers, who have won 12 of 13 after a perfect four-game homestand.

James is fifth in NBA history with 86 triple-doubles, but the four players in front of him - Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, Lakers great Magic Johnson and Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd - hadn't done it against 30 different teams.

One night after the Thunder barely missed an upset win over the Clippers thanks to a last-minute 3-pointer by former star Paul George, Oklahoma City couldn't quite catch up to the powerful Lakers despite keeping the game close all night.

James' 3-pointer put the Lakers up 109-98 with 3:08 to play, but the Thunder scored nine straight points to cut the Lakers' lead to two on Danilo Gallinari's free throws with 1:24 left.

After Danny Green got a key offensive rebound for the Lakers, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope drilled a 3-pointer with 55 seconds left.

Jrue Holiday had 22 points and 10 assists as the New Orleans Pelicans spoiled Carmelo Anthony's debut by defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 115-104.

Anthony, a 35-year-old 10-time All-Star who hadn't played in more than a year, started in his first game since signing with the Blazers.

He had 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting and four rebounds in 24 minutes.

Brandon Ingram, the Pelicans' leading scorer, returned from a four-game absence caused by a sore knee to add 21 points as New Orleans won for just the fifth time this season but the third time in four games.

Alec Burks scored a season-high 29 points as the Golden State Warriors snapped a seven-game losing streak with a commanding 114-95 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Marquese Chriss and Eric Paschall added 17 points apiece for the Warriors while rookie Ja Morant scored 20 points for Memphis.

In Sacramento, Bogdan Bogdanovic established career highs of 31 points and seven 3-pointers to lead the Kings to a 120-116 victory over the Phoenix Suns.
