I will be in the postseason again, vows LeBron James

LeBron James threw down a reverse alley-oop off the backboard and it was beautiful

The Lakers took a 66-64 lead when James found Kuzma for a layup with 8 minutes, 49 seconds in the third quarter.

LeBron James concedes the playoff hopes of the Los Angeles Lakers are "slimming down each and every game", meaning he will not be competing in the postseason for the first time since 2005.

Robin Lopez scored 20 points, Otto Porter Jr. had 19 points and nine rebounds and Kris Dunn finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and nine assists for Chicago. Everybody just had a joy for the game, happy for each other, everybody was moving the ball, passing it.

Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points and his teammate Kyle Kuzma produced 21 points for visitors.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points as the Milwaukee Bucks produced a 45-point third-quarter to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans 130-113.

Dallas lost for a sixth consecutive game as rookie Luka Doncic, playing with a sore right knee, was limited to 12 points on 5-of-18 shooting.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski recently discussed how much he believes in the Bulls rebuild. But because he signed a four-year contract with the Lakers last summer, there will be more hands to be played in L.A. "And he needs to, obviously, make open shots". As one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the results of the game will likely look a lot different on Thursday night.

As for the Bulls, they also are looking to snap a losing streak-two games-after getting swept by the Detroit Pistons over the weekend in a home-and-home series. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure".

But, while coach Luke Walton feels that their raft of injuries have led to "where we are at as a group", he still wants his players to give their all until the regular season concludes, adding: "It's our job to continue to come out and give everything we can to get better, to win the games we do have left".

LaVine underwent an MRI yesterday that confirmed he had a patellar tendon strain. These two teams met earlier this year in Los Angeles (January 15) with the Lakers winning, 107-100.
