LeBron to miss at least three more National Basketball Association games for Lakers

The Lakers' 107-97 victory dropped the Mavericks' home record to 15-4.

The Lakers are 1-5 without James on the season. "And I'm very pleased with where we're at right now". "It's embarrassing for the fans and the second half was terrible. I'm trying to keep him out of that deal", he added. Those are the same Cavaliers who now hold the league's worst record at 8-32 and are now teaching a master class in tanking (hello, Cameron Payne signing!) by either trading off or exiling players who could help them win. "Hopefully it won't happen again".

Kuzma's 41 was the most points by a Laker who played fewer than 30 minutes in the shot clock era.

Spreading the floor wouldn't be easy for such a quintet, as Rondo (35.7) and James (35.6) are the only players connecting on at least 35 percent of their 3-point attempts.

The Lakers led by four points at the start of the fourth quarter but were outscored 29-18 and fell to a third defeat in four matches.

Every day in the National Basketball Association there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the National Basketball Association.

That's how the National Basketball Association season plays out. "We didn't move the ball as well as we did in the first half". It didn't stick at all the entire game. Smith finished with four turnovers and one assists. Two of the Suns' nine wins this year have come against Dallas.

"Yes", Doncic said when asked if ball-movement was an issue. "I think it's exciting that we're where we're at and we still have so much room to grow".

James' left groin strain robbed fans of likely the last regular-season matchup between No. 5 scorer in National Basketball Association history James and No. 7 Dirk Nowitzki. And then the next guy is like, 'I can win this for us. Harden got his with that 42 and was making plays.
