The 34-year-old Howard, who joined the Lakers in the offseason for his second stint in purple and gold, collected James’ dish and threw up a slam on Myles Turner and the feisty Pacers.
James, 34, is actually leading the NBA is assists, turning it up a notch this season with added help in former New Orleans Pelicans All-Star power forward Anthony Davis. It has been speculated that James took time off last year with L.A.—his first season—after eight consecutive trips to the Finals, which put quite a toll on the future Hall of Famer.
