Lonzo Ball shoots just 2-for-11 Sunday as Lakers beat Cavaliers

LeBron James no-look pass

If you called Isaiah Thomas' bluff Sunday night, well, you were right.

James could leave Cleveland in free agency this summer and the Lakers are in with a good chance of signing the 14-time NBA All Star if they can prove they are capable of challenging for championships.

The Cavs were no match for Randle, who produced one of the most impressive games of his career. If they decide to wait until next year, they can go after Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors, Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs, Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics, and Jimmy Butler of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

After Sunday's blowout loss against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped to 6-6 since overhauling their roster at the trade deadline, making a number of deals that were expected to push them back into title contention.

They might've come to see James but instead watched the Lakers make one big final impression on the free-agent-to-be.

India says willing to work with China to develop relations
He said mutual trust is the most precious commodity in the China-India relations. So that's called a "reciprocal tax", or "mirror tax".

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.

Seeing Walton get praised by James is certainly gratifying coming from one of the top players in the league. "We both want to win". "Because ... whether I was with the Lakers or the Cavs, playing the Clippers was still a road game". Thomas had six points and two assists during the Lakers' game-changing run.

"I thought he just out-toughed us", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. He added, "It was next man up, but sometimes, you just fall short".

"He's a straight dog", Randle told ESPN about Thomas after the game.

"We've got to continue to play better, and we've got to be more aggressive offensively". "They know what I can do". "I'm not surprised, but it feels good". Don't read anything into this - they all know each other well - but during a timeout in the fourth quarter, Lakers president Magic Johnson walked across the court to greet James' two closest associates: agent Rich Paul and business partner Maverick Carter.Fun times."Since Luke (Walton) took over they've improved every single season and you just try to implement that", James said of the Lakers.
