LeBron James freezes Lakers' entire defence with slick no-look pass
Mar 13 2018
Despite rumors that Thomas has "no love" for Cavs All-Star LeBron James, there were no signs of bad blood before, during or after the game. "It's next man up, but sometimes, it falls short".
Cleveland was dominated on the glass during the game, with Los Angeles holding a 51-37 advantage on the rebounding front. The Lakers grabbed 14 rebounds in that department, compared to the Cavs' seven. What do you think Lavar Ball is thinking right now?
Isaiah Thomas went off for 20 points, nine assists, five rebounds, and a steal in his first game against the Cavaliers since they traded him to the Lakers at the deadline. "That ball movement, that body movement that he had when he was in Golden State."The Cavs traded Thomas, Channing Frye (who's out recovering from an appendectomy) and their first round pick for Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson". We've got to find ways to stay fresh. After the 5-foot-9 dynamo rebounded his own missed 3-pointer and hit a key jumper late in the third quarter, he took a long look in the direction of the Cavs' bench and coach Tyronn Lue - or maybe just at Floyd Mayweather, his good friend sitting next to Jack Nicholson.
The extremely nonchalant James somehow managed to freeze just about every member of the Lakers' on-court lineup before casually dishing the ball off to Ante Zizic, whom no one playing for Los Angeles had managed to see. That helped Los Angeles hold a 33-29 advantage after 12 minutes of action.
"It's hard to gauge because we have just so many guys out", Korver said post-game.
In the second quarter of Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James stunned all defenders with one of the smoothest no-look passes. Each time Cleveland made a run, Los Angeles would put an end to it and build its lead back up.
Randle, who had been slowed by an illness in the previous two games, had a career-high 36 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists.
LeBron James, whose looming free agency is the beacon of all the intrigue, seemed outmatched by the Lakers given the unhealthy status of his current team.
