Another day, another piece of history for LeBron James.

The Los Angeles Lakers star became the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double against every single team, starring in their 112-107 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Late in the fourth quarter, James drew in two defenders before finding a wide-open Anthony Davis, who knocked down the jumper to give James his 10th assist of the night and yet another NBA record.

James recorded 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his fifth triple-double of the season. The 34-year-old is currently second in the league in triple-doubles this season, trailing only Luka Doncic (6).

With 86 triple-doubles, James ranks fifth all-time, trailing Oscar Robertson (181), Russell Westbrook (141), Magic Johnson (138) and Jason Kidd (107).

Westbrook nearly achieved the feat earlier this season against the Thunder, falling one assist shy against his former team.

The Lakers have now won five games in a row and sit at 12-2 on the season, the best record in the NBA.

Anthony Davis led them in scoring with 34 points, seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks on the night as the Lakers' dynamic duo proved too much to handle for the Thunder.

Dennis Schroder scored 31 points off the bench for OKC, while Danilo Gallinari added 25 points and six rebounds.

The two teams will face off again in Oklahoma City on Saturday.
