LeBron James wills Lakers to ninth straight win and makes history along the way

After a sluggish first quarter, the Los Angeles Lakers were able to overcome a 14-point deficit and beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 128-99 behind a historic night from LeBron James.

In 26:14, James tallied a team-high 31 points and 8 assists. With his third assist, James passed Basketball Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas (9,061) to move up to eighth on the all-time assists list. James is the only small forward in the top-10 list.

James wasn’t as aggressive as usual on the boards, but Dwight Howard was able to pick up his slack, grabbing a game-high 15 rebounds.
