LeBron James continued his incredible stretch of games for the Los Angeles Lakers.
James now has seven straight games where he has scored at least 30 points after exploding for 43 against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Portland came into the game missing several key defenders, such as Robert Covington, and James wasted no time and took advantage of the situation.
He shot 16-of-26 from the field, including a strong 5-of-10 clip from beyond the arc.
This type of dominance from someone who just turned 37 years old isn’t normal in the NBA, and that’s the general consensus on NBA Twitter.
