Thomas helps Lakers to win over LeBron, Cavs

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

James can opt out of his contract after this season, and his presence in Los Angeles inspired a Lakers fan to purchase four billboards in the city. After his Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a 127-113 blow out loss in Los Angeles on Sunday (Monday AEDT), James showered praise on Luke Walton's team, giving further hope to aspirant Lakers fans ahead of July's National Basketball Association free agency period.

Unsurprisingly, Mayweather boasted court-side seats, sat alongside actor Jack Nicholson as the pair watched the Lakers run out 127-113 winners.

James produced 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but the Cavaliers lost for the fourth time in six games.

Sunday's matchup marked the first game between the Lakers and Cavs since a deadline day trade sent Nance and Clarkson to Cleveland for Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye.

Benue cancels mass burial as Buhari visits state on Monday
Cattle rearing is a business, so the Fulani people have to control their cattle by obeying the state law on ranching. He said he is genuinely anxious about the attacks in Benue and doing everything to end them.

The Lakers' exciting performance against Cleveland underlined that notion, for whatever it's worth in James' mind.

Myles Turner scored 19 points, including the game-winning basket with 21 seconds to play, and added 10 rebounds for IN, who survived the insane ending to win for the fifth time IN six games. "It's another game, but definitely one that's going to be fun to play in".

However, on Sunday, he was overshadowed by Randle as well other Lakers.

Despite rumors that Thomas has "no love" for Cavs All-Star LeBron James, there were no signs of bad blood before, during or after the game.

Thomas, who shot a few glares at Floyd Mayweather, who was seated near the Cavs bench, after making a couple of baskets, had what might have been his best all-around game for the Lakers with 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds. Courtside during a Lakers game needn't be one. Randle is a key piece for the Lakers because they can clear up to $70 million in cap space this summer to pursue two max free agents by parting with Randle and stretching Luol Deng's contract. They will be remembered as helping bridge the gap between eras, as two of the three players who suited up alongside Kobe Bryant and Lonzo Ball.
