    The Lakers forward scored 43 points with 11 rebounds in the Los Angeles 115-121 victory against the Hornets

    The Slovenian had 39 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists and led the Mavs to a 111-106 win over Houston

    LeBron James shone with a double double of 43 points and 11 rebounds in the victory of los angeles lakers against the Charlotte Hornets (115-121) and the Slovenian Luka Doncic continued to illuminate the dallas mavericks touching a new triple double, with 39 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists in the victory by 111-106 before the Houston Rockets.

    James was the protagonist with some spectacular plays in Charlotte and is already less than 500 points behind the absolute record in NBA history (38,387), set by Kareem Abdul Jabbaar. The Lakers cannot count on Anthony Davis these weeks, out due to a stress injury to his foot, but James, at 38, continues to put together extraordinary performances. Two days ago, on his 38th birthday, he signed 47 points against the Atlanta Hawks and again surpassed 40 points against some Hornets sunk in the penultimate place in the Eastern Conference. For the Lakers, Thomas Bryant had 18 points and 15 rebounds.

    If LeBron comes out in the Lakers, in the Mavericks the absolute protagonist is Doncic, chosen this Monday as the best player of the week in the West for the second time in a row. Doncic signed a double double of 39 points and 12 rebounds and the Mavericks sealed a 12-2 run in the last 4.23 minutes. The Mavericks add seven consecutive victories and are placed fourth in the West with a record of 22-16.
