Los Angeles Lakers won for the fourth time in a row. LeBron James was a big man with 44 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists. Outstanding: Utah Jazz won the victory in Dallas and Dvane Casei booked with Pistons with a victory win with his former team.
Impressive James jumped over Chamblaine
After a moderate start in the season, Lakers finally became a nerve in the NBA. Against the Portland Trailblazer, the black beast of Lakers, it did not look good by half to the second quarter (32-45), but then LeBron James took his escort in the tow.
With two heating triples just before the half-time, he almost equally led the Lakers to enter the dressing rooms with a lead of 55-59.
Even after the break, James always ruled. With 16 points in the third quarter, he gave a home team a conciliatory 8 points difference. In the fourth quarter, Lakers' victory was no longer in danger.
The peak of the evening came just four minutes before the end. With free-throw, James NBA legend Vilt Chamberlain passed the NBA list of best scorers. His counter is now 31,425 points.
Impressive LeBron James competition:
The worst defeat ever for Utah Jazz
Utah Jazz experienced an evening in Dallas to forget very quickly. The jazz did not reach 68 points and lost it to a large extent: 118-68.
A 50-point difference also means the biggest defeat in your history for the team. In 1979, Jazz lost Milwaukee Bucks with 54 points, but then we talked about Nev Orleans Jazz.

Butler loses the first game for 76 players
Jimmy Butler missed his debut for Philadelphia 76ers a few days after moving from Minnesota Timbervolves. Against Orlando Magica, however, it looked good for Butler and Co.
In the fourth quarter there was no dirt in the 76th for the 76-92 position. But then the engine stopped. Magic made 21 points in a row and suddenly took the lead.
Joel Embieid, who played his first triple-double (19 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists), did everything he could to avoid defeat, but the win was no longer for competitors: 111-106.
The first points of Butler in the 76ers uniform:
Casey revenges Raptors
Dwan Casey won Detroit Pistons at the last minute in Toronto Raptors. Last season, Casey led the Raptors in the best season with 59 victories and 21 defeats.
He was chosen coach of the year, but then fired after defeating 4-0 against Cleveland Cavaliers by LeBron James in the play-off.
Detroit Pistons were off-season like chickens that included Casey. Tonight, he received a warm welcome from the local hangars. The game lost to Pistons with 19 points, but they returned completely. At 104-104, Reggie Bullock took care of the "buzzer" that defeated Detroit.
