James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in Los Angeles taking on the Lakers today, one of the teams reportedly in the hunt for LeBron's signature later this 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.
Nance had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Clarkson added four points in their first game against the Lakers since they were traded for Thomas and Channing Frye on February 8.
While players are frequently traded and match up with their former teams every night in the NBA, Sunday's matchup had a somewhat different feel. James asked. "I mean you don't know".
Cleveland was dominated on the glass during the game, with Los Angeles holding a 51-37 advantage on the rebounding front.
Seven Raptors players hit more than 10 points, with Kyle Lowry finishing on 16, four rebounds and seven assists. I only played 15 games with them, so it's really not about showing them what I can do.
I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas' parting with Cleveland wasn't harmonious, and he showed off his elite scoring form. "The world knows what I can do".
Karl-Anthony Towns helped Minnesota stop a season-longest three-game losing streak with 31 points and 16 rebounds, as the Timberwolves powered their way past Golden State 109-103 down the stretch to hand the Warriors their second straight defeat without Stephen Curry. 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.
Lakers: Ingram was re-evaluated Sunday.
"Yeah, they stopped by [the locker room] on their way in - uninvited", Lakers coach Luke Walton deadpanned before the game. "It is going to be a great energy, great environment for tonight".
The lack of fireworks couldn't discount the fact that Thomas played well against the Cavaliers and that he got some form of revenge whether he admits it or not.
