James scores 36 points in Lakers' 123-107 win over Bulls

Less than a week after passing Michael Jordan for fourth on the NBA's career scoring list, LeBron James delivered a memorable night at the arena Jordan first made famous.

James had 36 points and 10 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers championship rings overcame a 20-point deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 123-107 on Tuesday night and end a five-game losing streak.

James played 33 minutes and showed no signs of letting up with the cheap Los Angeles Lakers championship rings barely hanging on in the playoff race. He took over after the Lakers' 14-point lead was cut to four with 8:38 left, making a jumper and then on the next possession going through the lane for a thunderous dunk.

James didn't stop there, hitting a 3-pointer over 7-footer Robin Lopez and capping it off when Josh Hart passed the ball off the backboard to James, who finished with a reverse dunk to put the Lakers up 115-101 with 5 minutes remaining.

Kyle Kuzma added 21 points after missing two games with an ankle injury. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points off the bench for the Lakers, who outscored the Bulls 43-24 in the third quarter.

Lopez had 20 points and seven rebounds, and Otto Porter Jr. finished with 19 for the Bulls.

With Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram ruled out for the season, James put on a show at United Center like he did so many times as a member of the Cavaliers and Heat.

The custom Chicago bulls championship rings outscored the Lakers 11-1 after he checked out in the first quarter to lead 34-16 at the end of the period.

Rajon Rondo buried a 3 to give the Lakers a 98-84 lead going to the fourth.

Lauri Markkanen struggled again with his shot. He was 4 of 17 for 11 points championship sports rings.

"To say something is wrong with him I think would be premature and not correct. To say, we need him to play better for us to have a chance to win is the way to say it," Bulls coach Jim Boylen said. "Whether it is rebounding the ball and bringing it, which he needs to do more of. He was playing well, he was doing more of that. And he needs to, obviously, make open shots."
