LeBron James' scoring quest continues as Lakers face Pelicans

LeBron James is not likely to break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA career scoring record when he and the Los Angeles Lakers visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.

But he can help the Lakers finish their five-game road trip with a winning record and tie the fading Pelicans in the tightly bunched Western Conference standings.

James needs 63 points to break Abdul-Jabbar's record of 38,387 points. His career single-game best is 61 points vs. Charlotte in 2014, when he played for Miami.
