LeBron James edged closer to the NBA's all-time scoring record as the Los Angeles Lakers pulled out a thrilling 112-111 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday."I think it's one of the greatest records in sports in general," James said, likening it to baseball's all-time home run record.
The duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis willed the Lakers back from a late deficit, while Nikola Jokic had a 16-assist triple-double.
