James’ figures surpassed the record, which was set by Derek Fisher, who also spent a lot of time with the Lakers.
For his performance and the incredible feat, fans went wild marvelling at arguably the greatest ever NBA player.
“It says that I have played with a lot of great teams,” James said in a post-game interview. “It says that I have played with a lot of great team-mates and some great coaches, in Cleveland, in Miami and now here in Los Angeles.
James scored 29 points in the first half, his season high for any half, to keep the Lakers afloat before dominating the action with four blocks in the third quarter.
