Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James put on a great performance Monday, as he recorded a triple-double to help lead the Lakers to a 131-120 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

By scoring 38 points, dishing out 12 assists, and pulling down 11 rebounds, the four-time NBA champion became the sixth player in league history to have three triple-doubles against a former team, as per ESPN Stats & Info.

King James said after the game that winning is all that matters and he is just glad to be able to contribute after the Lakers’ concerning performance this season.

“Just wanna get a win, that’s all that matters to me,” James said. “To be able to play how we played, I was able to contribute a little bit to the dub. Finish the trip off. That’s all that f\*\*king matters to me, excuse my language. We needed that one.”

Russell Westbrook also played well in the game, as he scored 20 points, and had 11 assists, and four rebounds backing up James on offense.

Coach Frank Vogel’s team will have to push hard the rest of this season and win as many games as they can. The team would end up with 41 wins should they win every single game from this point on.

If James and Co. manage to pull that off, the Lakers are guaranteed the sixth position in the Western Conference standings.

In addition, Anthony Davis has yet to make his return, which should improve the team’s performance even more.
