39;Unless I'm hurt I'm not sitting games,' says James

Will Barton scored 23 points, Gary Harris added 19 and the Nuggets snapped their three-game losing streak with a 115-99 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday night despite James' latest move up the career scoring ranks.

A tribute video played, and fans who did not have reason to cheer for LeBron James for the first 31,000 points of his career rose in a standing ovation.

James and the Lakers have lost four games in a row and sit 6.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 17 games remaining. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643). However, he is unlikely to be above him for much longer, and James is poised to surpass him on the points list next season. "He makes everybody around him better".

However, the message is clear for Magic Johnson and the Lakers' franchise: Get the King another star (or two) or risk wasting the last few years of the greatest player in the history of the sport. Seldom-used backup point guard Alex Caruso had 15 points and six rebounds in an outstanding performance in just his eighth National Basketball Association game of the season. LeBron hasn't missed the playoffs since the 2004-2005 season, but seems resigned to his fate this year.

Through 60 games for the Lakers this season, Kuzma is the team's second-leading scorer and is averaging career highs in points (18.8), field goal percentage (46.5 percent), free throw percentage (76.1 percent) and assists (2.5). "But now I know going forward where I need to be".
