LeBron James banked in his first 3-pointer of the night and swished his fourth to move past Peja Stojakovic for No. 18 on the career 3-pointers list in the Lakers’ 114-104 win over the Spurs on Monday.

James’ 33 points and 14 assists paced Los Angeles on a night when the entire team seemingly found its stroke, as the Lakers shot 14-for-33 (42.4%) from the outside, continuing a recent trend.
