Anthony shot 10 for 20 from the field, leading the Blazers in scoring with 25 points. The scoring outburst included Anthony shooting four for seven from the three-point line. Anthony currently sits at 25,615 career points, which ranks him 19th all-time in career scoring.

While Anthony carried the scoring load for the Blazers, Damian Lillard contributed 13 points and 12 assists and CJ McCollum scored 21 points. The win ends the Blazers four-game losing streak. After reaching the Western Conference Finals last season, the Blazers have struggled with a 6-12 record to start the season. Injuries to their forward positions sparked the Anthony signing, which is beginning to work for the team.

A team that isn’t struggling are the Lakers, who are a league best 15-2. Against the San Antonio Spurs, James led the way with 33 points and 14 assists in 35 minutes of action. His co-star, Anthony Davis, added 19 points and 12 rebounds to give the Lakers a 114-104 win and their 15th win of the season.

The 15-2 start is the best start for James in his illustrious career. Normally, his teams start slow and then reach the NBA Finals regardless of seeding. But this season is different. James has voiced his displeasure with media and fans writing him off as being washed up and no longer the best player in the league. With the newfound motivation, James is routinely torching opponents on offense and defense. James is picking his spots on the court, while averaging the lowest amount of minutes per game in his career.
