Lakers rally to beat the Bulls 123-107
(CHICAGO) - Less than a week after passing Michael Jordan for fourth on the NBA's career scoring list, LeBron James delivered a memorable night at the arena Jordan first made famous. James had 36 points and 10 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame a 20 point deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 123-107 on Tuesday night and end a five-game losing streak. James played 33 minutes and showed no signs of letting up with the Lakers barely hanging on in the playoff race. He took over after the Lakers' 14-point lead was cut to four with 8:38 left, making a jumper and then on the next possession going through the lane for a thunderous dunk. James didn't stop there, hitting a 3-pointer over 7-footer Robin Lopez and capping it off when Josh Hart passed the ball off the backboard to James, who finished with a reverse dunk to put the Lakers up 115-101 with 5 minutes remaining. It was James' highest-scoring game since Dec. 18. Kyle Kuzma added 21 points after missing two games with an ankle injury. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points off the bench for the Lakers, who outscored the Bulls 43-24 in the third quarter. Lopez had 20 points and seven rebounds for Chicago and Otto Porter Jr. finished with 19 for the Bulls.
