Cook, Durant, and Thompson combine for 79 points.
No ‘Chef’, no problem.
The Warriors’ Sous Chef served the Nets just fine.
The final quarter was closer than it should’ve been, but LeBron James was still able to help the Lakers cruise past the Kings.
Despite a cold shooting night from the field, the Los Angeles Lakers coasted to a comfortable 101-86 win over the Sacramento Kings Saturday at the Golden 1 Center thanks to a dominant offensive performance by LeBron James.
Part of the reason the Lakers’ need for depth at center had become so dire was they weren’t comfortable with playing Ivica Zubac, the third-year center on their roster.
Zubac, 21, had played only seven minutes all season before Saturday, when he got a chance for some meaningful playing time at Portland.
Los Angeles—The Minnesota Timberwolves will trade unsettled star Jimmy Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers in a deal which will see three players head the other way, the US media reported Saturday.
Butler, 29, has been agitating for a move away from the Timberwolves since the start of the season, handing a transfer request in September.
There have been countless Los Angeles Lakers rumors involving several different NBA superstars since Magic Johnson took over as President of Basketball Operations. Since LeBron James signed with the team at the beginning of July, no player has been more heavily mentioned in the Lakers rumors than Kawhi Leonard.
Magic Johnson has said that he won’t be making a head coaching change, as Luke Walton will remain on the bench for the regular season.
Personnel changes could be coming, though.
Despite losing Draymond to a foot injury, the Warriors use a 34-15 drubbing to runaway with their 8th straight win by defeating the Grizzlies.
The Golden State Warriors used one of their patented third quarter blitzes to peal away from a stingy Memphis Grizzlies defense in a 117-101 win that extended the team’s winning streak to eight.
The Knicks close out an ugly one in Atlanta that nearly turned our basketball-loving hearts into stone.
I’m not feeling too well today. Woke up with my throat irritated and a fever. I’ve sucked down about 15 cups of green tea and I’m not really a green tea kinda guy. I was, however, looking forward to watching this game, because I like basketball and, unlike most of P&T, I also like the Knicks. I’m sorry for this betrayal.
It’s a funny thing, seeing old foes in new places. LeBron James has owned a lot of real estate in the heads of the Toronto Raptors, as they’ve seen their last three post-seasons end thanks to an exultant James in Cleveland red and gold.
Now LeBron’s traded the red for purple, and much like the Cavaliers team he inherited when he initially returned to Ohio, there’s... a lot of work to be done in Los Angeles.
