LeBron James blames Cavaliers' woes on team injuries

Although his first game against the Lakers was sub-par, Clarkson will have to wait next season if we wants to showcase more of his repertoire at the Staples Center since Eastern Conference teams only visit Western Conference arenas once a season.

Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas, who said the Cavaliers "panicked" in January when they traded him to Los Angeles, chipped in 20 points against his former team. The Kid from Akron has played in 66 games with the Cavs this season, averaging 26.9 points on 54.3 percent shooting from the field (37.1 percent from beyond the arc), 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds.

James can opt out of his contract after this season, and his presence in Los Angeles inspired a Lakers fan to purchase four billboards in the city. The Lakers used a 22-3 run at the end of the third quarter to run away with a 127-113 victory over the Cavaliers.

In Minneapolis, Karl-Anthony Towns helped Minnesota stop a season-longest three-game losing streak with 31 points and 16 rebounds, and the Timberwolves powered their way past Golden State down the stretch to hand the Warriors their second straight defeat without Stephen Curry.

However, on Sunday, he was overshadowed by Randle as well other Lakers.

"It's tough, we've got a lot of young guys and different lineups, but we have to be better", Lue said.

The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability. However, most expected a deal to be in place before the 39-year-old had an opportunity to talk with other teams.

Victor Oladipo scored 27 points, then committed a dead-ball offensive foul with 1.5 seconds left that gave Boston a shot to win the game at the buzzer, but the Indiana Pacers held on to beat the depleted Celtics 99-97. "They know what I can do".

"No, I don't need to show anybody", Thomas said. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess".

"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".

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.

The Cavaliers' road trip continues with a Tuesday night contest against the Phoenix Suns that will tip off just after 10 p.m. ET.
