LeBron James shoots season-high 46 in LA Lakers

LeBron James became the oldest LA Lakers player to score 40 points in a game since Kobe Bryant’s farewell appearance in 2016 as the Lakers beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 115-108.

The 36-year-old, playing on the eve of the first anniversary of Bryant’s death, finished on 46 points.

He added eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.

James, playing for the second time in Cleveland since he switched to the Lakers in 2018, scored 13 points in the final four minutes and 41 seconds.

It helped the Lakers pull away and claim a 10th win out of 10 on the road this season.

They play in Philadelphia, Bryant’s birthplace, on Wednesday in what will be an emotional occasion.

Anthony Davis had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, while Montrezl Harrell scored 15 off the bench.

For the Cavaliers, Andre Drummond had 25 points and 17 rebounds while Cedi Osman scored 20 points and Collin Sexton finished with 17.
