James, of course, is calling back to the 2015 Finals - when he tried to, seemingly single-handedly, lead the Cleveland Cavaliers past the Warriors without both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.

D'Angelo Russell scored 21 points for Golden State, which has lost five in a row. They are 5-1 at home.

That rsquo wasn &;t the case during Wednesday's Warriors-Lakers match at Staples Center, though. In fact, Perkins thinks so highly of the Lakers' duo that it essentially broke his brain, forcing him to blurt out a "God Bless America" for how badly he felt for the rest of the league. But at the same time, you want to play. As a result, the Western Conference is wide open for the first time in five seasons and James and the Lakers are poised to make a serious run at the 2020 NBA Finals. James scored 11 points in the first.

Lakers: Davis is expected to return Friday.

During halftime of the Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers game, Thompson joined the TNT crew on air to discuss his rehabilitation, as well as, the current state of his team. James is averaging 24.0 points, 11.0 assists, and 8.2 rebounds per game.

The Browns (4-6) have won two in a row after dropping four straight, a skid that put coach Freddie Kitchens' job in jeopardy. The Browns are one of 11 teams committed to attending former quarterback Colin Kaepernick's workout in Atlanta this weekend.

Isaiah Thomas (18 points) received a warm welcome back to Boston, but his squad was unable to overcome three Celtics (Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown) each scoring at least 22 points.

"We did a good job locking in on defense and put a lot of pressure on the paint", Kuzma said.

Even with Howard, McGee, and Davis occupying most of the big man minutes, having Cacok in the wings would help shore up the rotation and will mitigate the team having to go to players like Jared Dudley. The Lakers shot 53.nine% over-all and 45% from outside of the arc, and designed excess belongings by out-rebounding the Warriors 51-33.

Towards the end of the game in the fourth quarter, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was forced to head to the locker room with what appeared to be an ankle sprain.

The Lakers said X-rays on Davis' ribs came back negative and that he would be reevaluated Wednesday.
