Lakers leave impression on LeBron in punishing rout of Cavaliers

Isaiah Thomas and LeBron hug it out

Isaiah Thomas and LeBron hug it out

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.

Nance averaged 11.9 points and 8.5 rebounds in his first 11 games with the Cavs, while Clarkson has scored 13.3 points per game and shot 49.5 percent from the field.

LeBron James added a few more fantastic passes to his highlight reel on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Sometimes you just can't overcome this many injuries that we have", James said.

They are only two games away from being the 15th pick which is the first pick after the National Basketball Association lottery.

I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball scored 5 points on 2-for-11 shooting Sunday, to go with 3 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1 steal in a 127-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. "We have a saying, 'Your last team, they didn't want you.' So he took it to them, and he did a great job".

Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle, left, and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. battle for the rebound.

"I'm a competitive person and he's really competitive", Kuzma added.

"It was something I always knew I could do", Randle said "Just take time to continue to learn the game, continue to grow and develop as a player". 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. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess".

But head coach Luke Walton believes that even if they fail to land any marquee names, they can make it to the postseason with their current roster. "It was good to see them".

On this episode of the Wine and Gold Talk Podcast, Joe Vardon joined to discuss the Cavaliers' road trip, LeBron James' chances of joining the Lakers this summer and who is most responsible for the season-long shoddy defense.

The Lakers' entire season has been created to prove their young core of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and probably Randle could fit splendidly around James, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins - or failing that, the top free agents in the class of 2019.
