Lakers leave impression on LeBron in punishing rout of Cavaliers

So, the Lakers president flaunted his opportunity to talk to talk to LeBron's agent (Rich Paul) and manager (Maverick Carter) during the Lakers' win over the Cavaliers yesterday in Los Angeles. They were led by their Julius Randle and Brook Lopez, who dominated former teammate Larry Nance Jr.by combining for 57 points, 22 rebounds and 11 assists.

A 104-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday dropped them to 37-29, which places them seventh in the standings and just one game from 10th.

But LeBron was smart enough to see this and fooled the pair by delivering a ridiculous no-look dime into a wide-open Ante Zizic inside for an easy dunk instead. Thomas, however, did not see his brilliant performance as a revenge game against the team that unceremoniously traded him away in the middle of the National Basketball Association season apparently due, in part, to his "lack of humility".

After the victory, in which Thomas scored 20 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed five rebounds, he told reporters the following. The Cavaliers have won just four of their last 10 games.

Donald Trump says United States should consider death penalty for drug dealers
In a January interview Trump said that he is not a feminist, because he's not exclusively supportive of women but of all people. Trump, who last week agreed to a historic one-on-one meeting with Kim, motioned with his arms for the crowd to calm.

The only bottom-feeders the Spurs will play from here on out are Orlando on Tuesday and Sacramento in their penultimate game on April 9. Randle is a key piece for the Lakers because they can clear up to $70 million in cap space this summer to pursue two max free agents by parting ways with Randle and stretching Luol Deng's contract. Thomas had six points and two assists during the Lakers' game-changing run.

Following the game, head coach Luke Walton had a huge amount of praise toward the 23- year-old calling his play against the Cavaliers a "pretty special" outing. But what's the point of having rules if they don't get enforced?

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, James is considering four teams.

The Lakers could use more of that from Randle to compete in a brutal back-to-back this week against the Denver Nuggets and at the Golden State Warriors, with Brandon Ingram slated to miss both due to his recovery from a groin injury.
