I will be in the postseason again, vows LeBron James

Less than a week after overtaking Michael Jordan on the NBA's career scoring list, James produced a memorable night at the arena Jordan used to grace.

LeBron James strode onto the United Centre court on Tuesday night for the 39th time overall and his first since signing with the Los Angeles Lakers.

This season, the Lakers had high expectations after bringing in LeBron, and during the beginning of it, they have shown a lot of promise. "That's what I live", James said. Kuzma had missed the previous two games with an ankle injury.

Veteran Kentavious Caldwell-Pope netted 4-of-8 triples to finish with 24 while Kyle Kuzma added 21 points and five rebounds as the Lakers kept their faint playoffs hopes alive with an improved 31-36 slate.

Also, Bulls guard Kris Dunn scored 18 points, had seven rebounds and made nine assists.

A 34-year-old LeBron James might not be able to lead this team to the playoffs, but a 34-year-old Kobe Bryant certainly could.

"We started to have fun", Kuzma said. Everybody just had a joy for the game, happy for each other, everybody was moving the ball, passing it. It felt like everybody had shots tonight.

The Bulls led 60-55 at the half. Ryan Arcidiacono and Lopez led Chicago with 12 apiece.

James continued the momentum in the third quarter.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points to lead six Milwaukee scorers in double figures in a win at New Orleans. Rajon Rondo buried a 3 to give the Lakers a 98-84 lead going to the fourth.

"We're still playing playoff teams", James said.

James, four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, said he's learning to accept whatever happens. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure". "You guys ask me questions, I answer questions, but I live being professional".

The team lost seven of 10 games heading into the All-Star break, then dropped seven of their next nine heading into Tuesday's matchup with the lowly Chicago Bulls. "I'm optimistic. I'm not eyeing a return date, but I'm optimistic", Boylen said. He was in a nice groove, nice rhythm. I think he wants to get back at it.

Bulls: Visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.
