LeBron James' 24 points not enough Sunday in Cavaliers' loss to Lakers

Isaiah Thomas and LeBron hug it out

Julius Randle (30) of the Los Angeles Lakers handles the ball against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 11, 2018 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.

They have relied heavily on the abilities and athleticism of power forward Larry Nance Jr., who was acquired in a trade with the Lakers at the trade deadline on February 8. Thomas embraced with several of his former teammates, including LeBron, prior to tip-off.

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.

However James bamboozled the Lakers by flicking the ball over to Ante Zizic who was given the easy task of completing the play. "I keep saying the world knows what I bring, so I don't got to play so good just to show them what they gave away".

The three-time National Basketball Association champion already has a $23million (£16.6m) mansion in Brentwood and a burgeoning career in entertainment production, so a move to LA could be a logical step. The Cavaliers have won just four of their last 10 games. I only played 15 games for them, so it's really not about showing them what I can do.

James could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and the Lakers are tipped to land the 14-time NBA All Star.

Both teams effectively matched each other during the second quarter when it came to shooting from the field, with the Lakers continuing to hold the Cavaliers at bay.

Lonzo noted that Randle "did a little bit of everything" for the Purple and Gold, including his two blocks and one steal, on a night that saw the fourth-year forward finish with a game-best plus-minus rating of plus-19.

Considering the Lakers' youth, it's actually a quality that coach Luke Walton appreciates.

If James comes up big in the postseason, it would not be a surprise to see them get the best of the Toronto Raptors or the Boston Celtics and get to the NBA Finals once again. That helped Los Angeles hold a 33-29 advantage after 12 minutes of action.

To be fair to the Lakers, the dummy fooled most of those watching.
