Lakers PG Rondo breaks hand in win over Trail Blazers

LeBron James

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo will undergo surgery to fix the fractured third metacarpal in his right hand.

"Next man up, next man up", said LeBron James. Whenever a player goes down, one guy's not gonna replace him. All in all, the Akron native finished the night with 31,425 points, falling just one assist shy of his 75th triple-double.

With an and-one in the fourth quarter, James scored his 39th point of the game and 31,420th of his career, passing Wilt Chamberlain for fifth place on the all-time scoring list.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 points and added 10 rebounds in the first half alone as Minnesota took down the Pelicans 107-100.

Despite squandering a 15-point lead in the third quarter, Memphis used a 15-2 run in the fourth to post a 116-113 victory.

The win came at a cost though with Rondo suffering a broken hand which Walton has confirmed will rule him out for a few weeks.

"We did a lot of nice things, but we did a lot of sloppy things tonight", coach Luke Walton said.

Portland (10-3) has won four in a row since a 114-110 loss to the visiting Lakers on November 3, its only defeat on a six-game homestand that culminated with a 100-94 win against the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

"Knowing where I've come from and knowing how hard it was to get to this point..." While the initial belief was that he was exclusively to back up and mentor Lonzo Ball, the veteran point guard was given an opportunity to compete for a starting role.

Damian Lillard had 31 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds, and CJ McCollum scored 23 points in the Trail Blazers' first road loss to the Lakers since February 22, 2013, ending a nine-game streak at Staples. After a slow start, Los Angeles (8-6) are already finding their groove in their first season with James and his fellow veterans joining a young core.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers have already gotten to know each other pretty well this fall. Jusuf Nurkic had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Aminu scored 18 points.

The 76ers blew an 11-point lead at the end of the third quarter as they fell to the Magic in Jimmy Butler's debut. He's playing an average of 24.2 minutes per game.

Rondo is likely out four weeks with the injury.
