LeBron James scored 15 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter as the Los Angeles Lakers won 106-101 against the visiting Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
The Lakers also had to cope with an injury to Anthony Davis, who rolled his ankle towards the end of the second quarter and did not return.
The Jazz led 79-71 heading into the fourth before James, 37, led the Lakers fightback in a dramatic end.
“What we saw LeBron do, it’s just remarkable,” coach Frank Vogel said.
“What he continues to do at this point of his career, to take over a game in the fourth quarter the way that he did with his energy, will and determination, it was really something special.”
Elsewhere, Gregg Popovich, coach for the San Antonio Spurs, recorded the 1,333 win of his head-coaching career – moving him second in the all-time NBA list – when his team beat the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Only Don Nelson, who oversaw 1,335 wins during spells with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Golden State Warriors, the York Knicks and the Dallas Mavericks, remains ahead of 73-year-old Popovich.
Keldon Johnson scored 22 points to lead the Spurs to a 114-106 win at the Thunder.
