BOSTON (AP) Kemba Walker finally beat LeBron James, and he did it by helping the Boston Celtics send the Los Angeles Lakers to their biggest loss of the season.

Walker ended a career-long losing streak against James, scoring 20 points to beat him for the first time in 29 tries and lead the Celtics past the rival Lakers 139-107 on Monday night.

"I'm happy I got one at least, before he goes," Walker said with a laugh after the Celtics snapped their three-game losing streak. "Who knows how long he can play, because he's just incredible. But you know, it's only one. One and 28."
