James with the achievement that only the legend Jordan has

LeBron James

NBA star LeBron James has secured a place alongside legend Michael Jordan in the history books. James' 40 points helped the Los Angeles Lakers win over the Brooklyn Nets with a score of 116:104.

James is only the second player, behind Jordan, to score 40 points in more than one NBA game after turning 39.

Jordan, who played until the age of 40, achieved this three times.  39-year-old James has already achieved this twice.

"Every time I'm mentioned in the company of the greatest, it's a beautiful thing," said James.

D'Angelo Russell scored 18 points to pass the 10 career point mark, while James made nine three-pointers, which is his record.

"I love this game. I give everything in the match and that's how I get the reward. Tonight I went with the shots for three points", added James.
