Lakers News: LeBron James praises Lonzo Ball, relates to the pressure on him

Lakers News: LeBron James praises Lonzo Ball, relates to the pressure on him

King James had plenty of positive things to say about Lonzo after their first meeting. LeBron James and Lonzo Ball shared the basketball court for the first time in their careers, and there’s certainly hope within the Los Angeles Lakers franchise that it will be far from the last time they do. The Cleveland Cavaliers were able to finish off the Lakers smoothly Thursday night, with LeBron adding another triple-double to his career total. The narrative surrounding the game was all about Lonzo and LeBron, with the nationally televised game putting an even brighter spotlight on the two....

Lakers vs. Cavaliers Final Score: LeBron James’ triple-double holds off Lakers in 121-112 loss

Lakers vs. Cavaliers Final Score: LeBron James’ triple-double holds off Lakers in 121-112 loss

The Lakers gave the Cavaliers a fight but couldn’t land the knockout punches they needed. The Los Angeles Lakers kept themselves in striking position against the Cleveland Cavaliers but couldn’t put together a win in a 121-112 loss. The purple and gold did a good job of competing all night, but another night of clanking three-pointers off the rim never allowed the Lakers to pull away after controlling the game through one quarter. LeBron James notched the 59th triple-double of his career, matching Larry Bird on the all-time list. James piled on 25 points, 12 assists and 12 rebounds,...

NBA Free Agency Rumor: LeBron James to the Lakers a ‘longshot’

NBA Free Agency Rumor: LeBron James to the Lakers a ‘longshot’

We’ll find out in a few months just how true this is. The Los Angeles Lakers have been preparing themselves for the summer of 2018 since the moment Magic Johnson took the reins of the franchise from Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak. The plan isn’t dissimilar to previous ones — have salary space, be the Lakers, make the pitch — but the air around the Lakers has certainly changed since the arrival of the new regime. The biggest target in the summer is, of course, LeBron James. The Lakers aren’t the only franchise hoping to sit down with LeBron, but they are hoping they’re the front...

The Arthur meme and excellent bench play have helped the Cleveland Cavaliers flip the switch

The Arthur meme and excellent bench play have helped the Cleveland Cavaliers flip the switch

The seminal moment of the 2017-18 season occurred on Nov. 6. Kyrie Irving had just put up a masterful performance against the Atlanta Hawks, dropping 35 points on 22 shots, and the floor general’s explosion led to the Boston Celtics earning their sixth win in a row. Meanwhile, his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, who had just lost to that same Hawks squad the night before, were having trouble finding their footing in the new league year, getting off to a rocky 4-6 start through ten games. That’s when LeBron James changed everything. It wasn’t by putting up some absurd stat line or...

Wade and James both said the team would be fine without him, but offered support nonetheless. Derrick Rose has stepped away from the Cavaliers for over a week and is currently evaluating his future in the game of basketball due to constant injury problems over the last five seasons, and while LeBron James isn’t worried about what that means for the Cavaliers on the court, he did offer support to Rose, via Cleveland.com: "I don't think it means too much for the team, but I think more importantly as one of his brothers, that's somebody we got to know these last couple months," James said....

The Cavs picked up a seventh straight win on Friday.

LeBron James was sensational, leading the Cavs with 27 points, 16 rebounds, and 13 assists.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets player grades

LeBron, of course, leads the way. Here are player grades for Wednesday’s Cavs-Nets game. Have a great Thanksgiving! LeBron James: A+ James scored 23 fourth quarter points, including 18 in a row at one point. What else is there to say? He won the Cavs this game. Kevin Love: B- Love started the game shooting 1-7 from the field, but finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds and contributed in other ways. Had his shots fallen early, the Cavs may not have needed LeBron’s heroics. Dwyane Wade: A- Wade is starting to look much more comfortable running bench units. He also stretched...

Final Score: LeBron James’ 23 fourth quarter points carry Cavs to 119-109 win vs. Nets

On the day before Thanksgiving, the Cavs picked up their sixth straight win. The Cavs have won their sixth straight game, and they have LeBron James to thank the night before Thanksgiving. James scored 23 of his game-high 33 points in the fourth quarter as the Cavs beat the Nets 119-109 on Wednesday night in Cleveland. He also had six rebounds and five assists. The Cavs and Nets both opened up the game cold from the floor, with Kevin Love leading the struggles by shooting 1-7 in the first quarter. But seven points from James and six from Jae Crowder were enough to give the Cavs a 20-17...

Too much LeBron, as the Nets fall to the Cavs on the road, 119-109

Too much LeBron, as the Nets fall to the Cavs on the road, 119-109

LeBron James is good. Really, really good at basketball. And given that the Nets had, well, embarrassed LeBron -- the self-proclaimed ‘King of New York’ — earlier in the season when he and the Cavaliers made their first trip to Brooklyn, it was likely we were going to see ‘Revenge LeBron’ on Wednesday night in Cleveland. You know, the LeBron who can score, say, 18 straight points in the fourth quarter to completely take over a game. Yeah, that LeBron. The Nets, however, have a savior (of sorts) of their own in Spencer Dinwiddie, who has been the team’s best player since...
