If there’s anything that stands out about the Los Angeles Lakers’ current form, it’s what LeBron James is doing night after night.
He’s averaging 28.7 points on the season, but he’s taken his game to another level since Anthony Davis fell with an MCL sprain, which has put him in center of position more often.
Over the past nine games, James has averaged 34.3 points per game, his most recent being a 32-point performance against the Atlanta Hawks. This outing has made them nine 30-point games in his last 10, including 10 consecutive games of at least 25 points, meaning James has passed Michael Jordan in a new stat (h / t: @ESPN):
At 37, LeBron is the oldest player in NBA history to play 10 consecutive games with 25 points 🤯

The Lakers have won four in a row and are 5-0 when LeBron starts center. Only time will tell how long this run will last, but the 37-year-old star is putting on a spectacle that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
