LeBron James had his 98th career triple-double in the Los Angeles Lakers’ win over the Golden State Warriors. The 36-year-old finished the game with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in 30 minutes of play. He is currently fifth on the list of the NBA’s triple-double leaders. Above him is Jason Kidd with 107 career triple-doubles.

After the game LeBron shared his thoughts on this statistic. “I’ve always wanted to have a triple threat game where one, I can pass the ball,” he said. “I love passing the ball to my teammates and getting those guys shots, getting them good looks. Being able to rebound that’s always important. Rebounding wins championships as great Pat Riley would say. And then being able to score a little bit too. That’s probably the least out of the three for me.

“To be able to be on the court and you can control the game in three facets of the game. It’s always been important for me to do it in a win. The loss is never mean much to me. But to it in a win and feel like you made an impact and when it happens in the flow of the game that’s what’s also more important.”
