James scored 16 points in the third quarter and 12 in the fourth, never allowing Portland to make a final run during the Lakers' fourth consecutive win.

LeBron James has been breaking records since he entered the National Basketball Association at age 18, and on Wednesday night, moved into fifth all-time on the National Basketball Association scoring list when he passed Wilt Chamberlain with 31,420 points as he knocked down a free throw against the Blazers late in the fourth for his 39th point of the game.

Rondo will see a specialist Thursday to determine whether to opt for surgery, a team source told ESPN.

He exited with five minutes, 20 seconds left to play after hitting his hand against the floor while trying to steal the ball from Jusuf Nurkic.

Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA's all-time points leader with 38,387 points, followed by Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) with Michael Jordan one place ahead of James at 32,292. "For us to get Tyson in the fashion that we got him and to be able to implement him right away and the impact that he's made in these three games thus far, it's great". Next man up. Next man up.

"I haven't changed anything outwardly, but you know me".

Although James has paced himself at times early in the season, he went deep into his bag of tricks against the Blazers, finishing with 44 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and three blocks. He also gathered a total of eight boards on that game, which eventually gave the Lakers the needed edge over the Wolves.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo underwent surgery Thursday to fix the fractured third metacarpal in his right hand.

It was only a matter of time before his career path led him back home. At this point, Ball is not close to being a reserve All-Star player.

"We did a lot of nice things, but we did a lot of sloppy things tonight", coach Luke Walton said.

"He's done an incredible job of kind of getting that second group playing at a really nice rhythm for us", Walton said of Rondo. Even rookie shooting guard Svi Mykhailiuk could get point guard minutes, Walton said. "And the way he orchestrates a unit and getting guys shots".

"That is where he will be missed the most".
