LeBron Out Plays Giannis and Drops 34 Points on Milwaukee

King James takes the Bucks for a ride and scores season high and ends game with a dagger.

LeBron James says the results of last season’s NBA awards voting didn’t provide extra motivation as his Los Angeles Lakers prepared to face Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. According to James, it was just another night at the office.

James scored a season-high 34 points in the opener of a seven-game road trip, helping the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Bucks 113-106 on Thursday. He finished second to Antetokounmpo in last year’s MVP balloting.

“It’s never been about individual (honors) It’s all about the team success. That’s all that matters. … I just want to play well and help our team versus any opponent. That’s what it’s all about.”

Los Angeles (12-4) bounced back after blowing a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter of a 115-113 loss to Golden State on Monday night. The Bucks dropped their second straight. This game pitted the reigning NBA champion Lakers against a Bucks team that posted the league’s best regular-season record each of the last two years. It was the first time the Lakers had faced the Bucks since the 2019-20 awards voting, which also had Antetokounmpo finishing just ahead of Los Angeles’ Anthony Davis in the voting for defensive player of the year.
