Thomas helps Lakers to win over LeBron, Cavs

Thomas helps Lakers to win over LeBron, Cavs

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

Julius Randle had a career-high 36 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, as the Los Angeles Lakers auditioned for LeBron James' favour in free agency with a 127-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night. They hope that's attractive to James, who can be a free agent this summer.

Perhaps more than any individual performance by the Lakers, James may have been impressed with their fluidity and style of play.

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.

Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they traded him to Los Angeles last month and ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine. He could instantly make Los Angeles a contender next season, but there are still question marks about how he will fit into the current Lakers team. The top name on that list is likely to be James, who has a player option for next year. As we have seen this season, the Lakers are able to play fast and move the ball quite nicely.

"Listen, at the end of the day you've got to want the most out of whoever you've got on the floor", James said. Later in the game, James sent a bounce pass through Lonzo Ball's legs that would've been good for an assist had Jeff Green not missed his dunk attempt.

"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". When a player like James notices that the franchise is getting better, that is certainly a good sign for the Lakers. Thomas, who shared hugs with several of his former Cavs teammates including J.R. Smith at half court before the game, got a little revenge against the Cavs who traded him away after he played only 15 games for the them following his hip surgery. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess". "It's no surprise, I've done that before."Thomas averaged 14.7 points and shot a career-low.361 from the field in 15 games with the Cavs". As a person. Something I knew I could do.
