Magic Johnson: Lakers Don't Want to Be 'Cleveland All Over Again'

Lakers and LeBron sink to woeful NBA lows

They've seen this plenty of times over the years, and they're still not insane about it.

In a 117-85 defeat, the Lakers shot five of 35 from three-point range.

Brandon Ingram scored 14 points and Josh Hart added 13 for the Lakers, who blew an early 24-point lead before James carried them down the stretch to their 10th win in 14 games.

Teams generally score more efficiently when pushing the tempo, so LeBron calling the play on the fly rather than looking toward the bench means the Lakers can get into it more quickly.

We kept him on because we thought he had potential to be a big steer but never imagined he'd grow to be this huge, ' he said. Naturally, after people learned of Knickers, they have not been able to stop talking about just how big he is.

James added nine rebounds and seven assists in his first game since scoring a season-low 14 points in the Lakers' embarrassing loss at Denver.

James quickly responded with a personal 5-0 run out of a timeout and when the 33-year-old returned for the final stretch, he was able to successfully close out the game. Finally, the last fantasy was that LeBron, whose usage rate has hovered around 30 percent for most of his career, would be able to spend more time playing off the ball with the multitude of ball handlers the Lakers posses.

"That's the challenge of things I've been kind of battling with since the season started", James said.

Oladipo hasn't taken the court since November 17 and yet still leads the team in points (21.4), steals (1.56) and minutes played (32.4) per game. He added a 22-foot jumper with 2:21 to play and a 19-footer on the next possession, calmly sealing it.

It was a very big challenge for me, with some of the things that he has said in the past, especially in the a year ago or two. "An injury - a proper injury - that will keep him out for a while".

When he tripped backward over Malik Beasley with just under two minutes left in the second quarter, Ball gave the Lakers a pretty clear glimpse of what life might look like if the injury ends up costing him more time. "Those guys have the ability to make plays as well".

The Lakers have now lost back-to-back games while Denver have won four in a row.

Victor Oladipo has missed the previous six games.

Walton said that any team with a player of James's caliber will rely on that player at times. "I've got to make sure I'm good".

Manafort reportedly met with Julian Assange when he joined Trump campaign
The Guardian based its report on information from unnamed sources and an internal document from an Ecuadorian intelligence agency. Manafort has been at the heart of several unresolved threads of the Robert Mueller investigation.

He skipped college to head straight for the National Basketball Association in 2003 and was the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers. James' Miami Heat also sent in home in three consecutive postseasons from 2012-14. "We know what we did wrong collectively".
