LeBron passes Chamberlain as Lakers beat Blazers

Catch up on all the top individual performances around the league in the Top Performers series.

James led the Lakers in scoring on Wednesday night, racking up a season-high 44 points on 13-of-19 shooting from the field (5-of-6 from beyond the arc), 10 rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and one steal in 36 minutes of action.

LeBron James reached another milestone in the National Basketball Association as he helped the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

In other one-sided games, Dallas routed Utah 118-68, the Wizards beat James' former team Cleveland 119-95, Oklahoma City swamped the Knicks 128-103, Miami were too strong for the Nets 120-107, Boston hammered Chicago 111-82 and Phoenix upset San Antonio 116-96.

Elsewhere, everything about Jimmy Butler's first game with the 76ers was going great, until the fourth quarter. After the game, James said that the game ball and the jersey he wore would go to "I Promise", the school he recently opened in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

Chandler has revealed he had a choice between five teams and after a lot of thinking he narrowed it down to two - James' Lakers and Stephen Curry's all-conquering Warriors. The Lakers will have to rely on their young point guard Lonzo Ball to play heavy minutes moving forward.

"As a group, we'll do our best to continue to play the way that we've started to play", Walton said.

Trail Blazers: Lillard played without restrictions after missing practice to rest his right knee.

Philadelphia fell to the Magic 111-106 as it blew an 11-point lead at the end of the third quarter in the loss.

"Lakers: The 6'5" Josh Hart blocked a dunk attempt by the seven-foot Nurkic in the first quarter.

What can the 17-year veteran possibly do to make the Lakers a playoff threat?

Several players have stepped up, including Aaron Gordon (averaging 20 points in this stretch) and Terrence Ross (hitting 49 percent on 3's in the same span).

Rondo is expected to miss four to five weeks, which could mean an extended opportunity for Caruso.

The Lakers will return to the court when they face the Trail Blazers on Wednesday. The clubs don't have their final meeting until the regular-season finale at Staples Center on April 9.
