LeBron James missed the Los Angeles Lakers‘ thrilling win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, a 128-124 double-overtime victory that served as a key marker in the Lakers‘ quest to return to the NBA playoffs. But he came back in a big way on Wednesday night, when Los Angeles needed a little more inspiration on a back-to-back.

James led the way as the Lakers took down the lowly Grizzlies at FedEx Forum. Running mate Anthony Davis rested after playing 52 minutes against the Bucks, but James stepped up with a triple-double in the 136-124 win in Memphis.

James became the second-oldest player in NBA history to put up a triple-double, as he registered 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 12 assists in 35 minutes. The Lakers led by as many as 27 points and improved to 41-32 thanks to James’ 111th career regular-season triple-double.

Without Davis, Rui Hachimura stepped up with a 32-point night, knocking down 11 of his 14 shot attempts — and seven of his eight three-point shots. The Lakers had seven players score in double digits and shot nearly 56 percent from the floor as a team while holding the Grizzlies to 47 percent shooting.

Desmond Bane led Memphis with 26 points and 16 assists. The Grizzlies have struggled this season without the injured Ja Morant and fell to 24-49 with this defeat, continuing a highly-disappointing season for what was once a stellar young team on the rise.

Youth vs. experience

Wednesday’s Lakers – Grizzlies game was notable for another reason — it was a showdown between the NBA‘s oldest active player and its youngest.

James (39) and GG Jackson (19) squared off in this unique battle, wherein one player — Jackson, a second-round pick in the 2023 draft — was born midway through the other’s second full season in pro basketball. Jackson got the start for the Grizzlies and finished with a respectable 10 points in 29 minutes.
