LeBron James has 28 points as Lakers beat Trail Blazers

LeBron James has 28 points as Lakers beat Trail Blazers

With the acquisition of LeBron James the rules are suddenly different and the Lakers are expected to be a top their team by both their fans and their management.

Sloppy play once again came back to hurt the Lakers in the fourth quarter, but the Blazers couldn't get much closer as James and JaVale McGee made crucial baskets in the final two minutes.

When you throw LeBron James into the drama known as the Real Lakers of Los Angeles, we knew the results would be spectacular. "The numbers say we're 11th but it doesn't feel like it, but we are". "If you mess with the game, the game will mess with you and I thought we did that a little bit".

After defeating the Lakers 16 straight times, a streak covering a span of 1,706 days, the Trail Blazers dropped their first game to Los Angeles in almost five years with a 114-110 loss in front of a sellout crowd of 19,848 Saturday night at the Moda Center. We just weren't sharp enough. Clearly, they are looking for better things. The Lakers then had to survive a late-game scare from the Mavericks on Halloween as Dallas almost overcame a 19-point deficit. Obviously, we had the unexpected one when we had the suspensions, so we had a lineup change there....

Trump says he plans to scrap birthright citizenship
Trump did not back down Wednesday from his controversial proposal to upend the very concept of American citizenship . He added Wednesday: "Many legal scholars agree" with his interpretation.

James finished with 29 points for the Lakers who were up 111-98 with 3:42 to go before the Mavericks went on a 15-2 run to pull even with seven seconds left. Al-Farouq Aminu also grabbed 13 rebounds while also logging four points, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes.

Matthews led Dallas with 21 points and Harrison Barnes scored 19.

LeBron James isn't paying attention to the sideshow going on around his Hollywood story. Five hours later, he saved the Los Angeles Lakers from a horrifying ending.

Anthony Davis returned from a two-game absence with a sprained right elbow and had 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Pelicans in a rematch of a Western Conference playoff series from last season.
