LeBron James reached big assist milestone in Friday win vs. Bucks

Friday was a big day for the Los Angeles Lakers, as they scored a huge win over the Milwaukee Bucks on the road, 133-129.

It was L.A.’s biggest win in quite some time, and it came against a team that had won the NBA championship less than 18 months ago and could quite possibly do so again this coming summer.

Anthony Davis, as he has often been lately, was the Lakers’ biggest star, as he exploded for 44 points on 18-of-27 shooting plus 10 rebounds, four assists and three blocked shots.

But LeBron James didn’t do too badly himself, as he added 28 points, eight rebounds and 11 assists.

Those 11 assists allowed him to notch an important milestone, as he surpassed Lakers icon Magic Johnson on the all-time list of career assists.
