In the second quarter of Cleveland's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center, James managed to dupe everyone in the building with one of the niftiest passes of the year. As the Cavaliers called timeout while down 115-94, James palmed the ball and motioned as if he wanted to throw it in frustration before cocking back. What had seemed like such a triumph at the National Basketball Association trade deadline for the defending Eastern Conference champions - acquiring four intriguing players, sending out six whose contributions to that point in early February had been meager - has flattened out, giddiness turning to guardedness. James asked. "I mean you don't know".

The loss to the Lakers dropped Cleveland to the No. 4 seed in the East with 16 games left to play. Former Lakers fan favorite Larry Nance Jr. added 16 points while Jordan Clarkson was limited to four points in 16 minutes.

Dario Saric scored 18 points and Ben Simmons had 11 points, six assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who were able to avenge a disappointing loss to the Nets at Barclays Center in January.

"I don't need to show anybody", Thomas said.

George W. Bush tried steel tariffs. They didn't work
She argues that since European Union companies are not state subsidised or in overcapacity, they can't be considered a source of "unfair trade" with the US.

"I don't know if I could play washed, but I damn sure would love to stick around if my oldest son can have an opportunity to play against me". Conversely, Cavaliers starters Jeff Green and J.R. Smith combined for just 10 points and struggled from the field, shooting a collective 3-for-15 (20 percent). If the four-time NBA MVP declares for free agency following this season, the Lakers are believed to be among the frontrunners for his services.

He was re-evalauted by the Lakers medical staff on Sunday, and while the team said he is "progressing well with his treatment", he will be held out Tuesday against Denver and Wednesday in Golden State before meeting with doctors again on Thursday. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good". It will be fun.

Celebrities such as Mayweather, Adam Levine, Jason Sudeikis and Marlon Wayans joined Lakers fixture Jack Nicholson to get their glimpse of James' only trip to Los Angeles to play the Lakers this season. In fact, there were no signs of animosity between Thomas and James as they hugged before the game.
