LeBron James scored 36 points to spoil a career-high 31 points and 17 rebounds from Toronto Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes in the Los Angeles Lakers' 128-123 overtime win that halted the home team's five-game winning streak on Friday.

Avery Bradley drilled in a 23-foot jumper with 32.1 seconds remaining in extra time and two late foul shots for the Lakers victory that ended their three-game losing streak.

Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr. hit a 26-foot three-point jumper with 25.7 seconds remaining. But after two missed three-pointers from James and Russell Westbrook, the latter intercepted a pass from Raptors forward Precious Achiuwa and hit a three-pointer with 0.4 on the clock to extend the game to overtime.
