“Being the first athlete to score 40,000 points is great for me in this tournament. You just know the history, you know the greats of the past. The most important thing is always winning, I hate setting a record in a losing match. We played a good match, but couldn’t finish with a win. So I’m feeling bittersweet, but I enjoyed every moment on the floor ” – LeBron James said in regret.

After the game, Lakers coach Darvin Ham said: “So happy for him. It’s a great achievement. I wish we could have won this game. But I have respect for LeBron James. It’s amazing, LeBron’s incredible run continues today.”
