LeBron James takes vet moves to a new level vs. Clippers

Meanwhile, the Clippers have the 17th toughest remaining schedule, and the Spurs' final 17 games are ranked 24th toughest. The Los Angeles Lakers, beset by injuries and slipping further down the West's standings by the day, have accepted their fate.

Through 60 games for the Lakers this season, Kuzma is the team's second-leading scorer and is averaging career highs in points (18.8), field goal percentage (46.5 percent), free throw percentage (76.1 percent) and assists (2.5). While early in the year the Lakers could write those losses off as "growing pains", those games added up as the season went on and have come back to bite the Lakers hard.

The Lakers led by as many as 10 late in the first quarter.

"The injuries are taking a toll on us", James said. The Lakers, meanwhile, are on track to miss the playoffs for the sixth straight time, the longest drought in the franchise's 71-year history.

Safechuck was nine years old when he worked with Jackson on a Pepsi commercial, prompting trips around the world with Jackson. Allegations of sexual abuse by Jackson first arose in the 1990s and followed him for several decades.

While suggestions LeBron could reach the NBA Finals for the ninth consecutive season always seemed overly optimistic, the thought of him not guiding the Lakers to the playoffs would have been ridiculed at the beginning of the campaign.

With 18 games remaining in the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season, it appears Kuzma will not miss too much time as the injuries continue to pile up.

Coach Luke Walton, facing rampant speculation about his job security, had no interest in gauging the playoff implications of Monday's result or of the Lakers' 22nd loss in the last 26 games against their crosstown rivals.

Lonzo may want to consider deleting that tweet, but I personally hope he keeps it going forever. They are two of the NBA's most disappointing teams when you compare their record now to their preseason projections. "I'll continue to be a professional and be as great as you can be every single night". The Lakers face the Denver Nuggets and the Boston Celtics at home before embarking on a five-game East Coast trip next week.
