Forward LeBron James scored 27 points, grabbed seven boards and handed out 12 assists in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 115-128 loss to the Anthony Davis-less New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night.

“The last few years, everyone’s so accustomed to the losses that I’m just not accustomed to. I’m not accustomed to it. I will never get comfortable with losing. So, losing Game 1 to Houston [at home], it feels the same way as losing Game 59 in New Orleans, for me. It’s just how I’m built. That’s who I am,” James said after the game, per ESPN.

The Lakers are 4th in the Pacific Division with a 29-30 record.
