The LeBron-less Lakers had too many costly mistakes – poorly-timed turnovers, ill-advised fouls, missed open 3s and blown layups – to beat a solid Denver team that got a great game out of their MVP, Nikola Jokic (38p 18r 6a). Lakers lose 129-118 to fall to 31-47. Four games left – 6:10 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Global Tech News Daily

Average every MVP season in NBA history and you get 43.8 combined points, rebounds and assists per game.

There are SIX players doing it this season, tied for the most ever.

Giannis. Jokic. Embiid. LeBron. Durant. Doncic.

Just an absurd collection of top shelf talent. – 5:57 PM Sean Highkin @highkin

Is it OK to start taking LeBron James for granted if the Lakers miss the playoffs? – 5:54 PM Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine

There is no absolutely BAD result out of this Lakers-Nuggets game for the Wolves. I don’t think anybody on the Wolves is going to be upset about not having to face LeBron and Davis in a potential second game of the play-in. – 5:50 PM Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix

NEW: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in L.A. to honor Carmelo Anthony, continues pointed criticism of LeBron James. si.com/nba/2022/04/03… – 5:41 PM Bill Oram @billoram

Before today’s game, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar doubled down on his criticism of some of LeBron James comments, saying he should be “embarrassed” and that “he’s standing on both sides of the fence” on social issues. theathletic.com/news/kareem-ab… – 5:35 PM Malika Andrews @malika_andrews

38 years ago this Tuesday, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar set the NBA scoring record. “It’s about time (the record was broken),” Abdul-Jabbar tells ESPN. “I’m not going to be jealous of LeBron. He’s earned it… it’s a pretty neat thing.” pic.twitter.com/GSeQ5lP52a – 4:45 PM

New story: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on LeBron James – “Some of the things he’s done and said are really beneath him, as far as I can see … Some of the things he’s done, he should be embarrassed about” es.pn/3u4x3s1 – 4:43 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

In the 2020 Western Finals, LAL did as good a job on Nikola Jokic as anybody has, using Howard and Davis, with help from LeBron and digging-down guards like Caruso/KCP/Green.

Jokic averaged: 21.8 ppg (54%), 7.2 reb., 5.0 apg.

Jokic this season: 26.6 ppg (58%), 10.3 rpg, 6.2 apg – 4:04 PM Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin

LeBron gets a roar from the crowd here as he walks in from the tunnel at the first media timeout. – 3:55 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Good start from LeBron-less LAL today, as they lead Denver 12-5, led by @Anthony Davis.

AD has a pair of dunks towards 6 points, plus some good defense on Jokic, including a big swat near the rim. – 3:53 PM Brad Turner @BA_Turner

Vogel said LeBron’s ankle was particularly sore after last game; short turnaround (7:30 p.m. Friday tip, to 12:30 p.m. Sunday tip) didn’t help.

Vogel has had to game plan without LeBron or AD for most of the season: “Season of adjustment … we gotta play through it.” – 1:56 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Frank Vogel confirms LeBron James is out today against Denver. Anthony Davis is in. – 1:51 PM Dave McMenamin @mcten

Frank Vogel says LeBron James is out and Anthony Davis will play today against Denver. “He had ankle soreness from the other night, this is essentially like a back to back,” Vogel said. Vogel said LeBron is day to day moving forward. – 1:50 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina

Frank Vogel considers LeBron James as “day-to-day.” Though Vogel described Anthony Davis as “sore,” he will play today against the Nuggets – 1:50 PM Allen Sliwa @AllenSliwa

Coach Vogel confirms Lebron OUT with ankle soreness…AD is IN – 1:50 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

LeBron (ankle soreness) is out today, per Frank Vogel. – 1:50 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina

Lakers coach Frank Vogel confirms LeBron James is out for today’s game against the Denver Nuggets because of “ankle soreness.” – 1:50 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

LeBron James is out today vs. Denver due to the sprained left ankle that he originally injured at New Orleans last week, per Frank Vogel. – 1:50 PM Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA

Frank Vogel confirms LeBron James is OUT today. – 1:49 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

LeBron James out this afternoon, per the Lakers. That’s not good for their Play-In hopes. – 1:41 PM Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

Lakers star LeBron James will be out today vs. Nuggets as he deals with nagging ankle injury, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. The Lakers are currently one game behind San Antonio for the final Play-In spot. – 1:36 PM Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn

Denver not having Jeff Green or Zeke Nnaji as bodies that can credibly guard LeBron today is a big deal.

Gonna guess Austin Rivers starts, AG guards LeBron, and Jokić guards Davis. Unless Dwight Howard also starts in which case JaMychal Green gets the nod. – 1:19 PM Marc Stein @TheSteinLine

LeBron chases the last crown left this season as the Lakers underachieve to the end …

+ more on Ben Simmons, Jerami Grant and the newly minted HoF’er Del Harris …

Russell Westbrook is overpaid and having a rough season.

He may also be the best performer remaining from his draft class.

You usually don’t have a great season in Year 14 in the NBA.

(Which makes the play of LeBron and CP3, both older than Russ, look all the more impressive). pic.twitter.com/SoivUaGaOY – 12:14 PM

The Duke faithful have some good things to look forward to. Yankees baseball is just around the corner, the Cowboys will start training camp in a few months, and the Lakers still have LeBron. – 11:16 PM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

This is like the LeBron James of Final 4 games… had tremendous, over-the-top hype but somehow exceeded expectations ? – 10:47 PM Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto

Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr., Zeke Nnaji and Vlatko Cancar remain out for tomorrow’s game at the Lakers. Carmelo Anthony’s probable, Anthony Davis and LeBron James questionable for LA. – 7:37 PM

More on this storyline

Ben Golliver: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says he’d be willing to meet Lakers’ LeBron James to discuss their differences on issues like vaccine advocacy: “I admire the things he’s done… Sending a whole school to college, wow, that’s amazing… Some of the things he’s done he should be embarrassed by.” pic.twitter.com/0QlNMNUXit -via Twitter @BenGolliver / April 3, 2022 Brad Townsend: Big statement from Kidd, when asked if @LeBron James is the greatest NBA player ever: “In my book, he’s going to go down as the best to ever do it.” -via Twitter @townbrad / March 29, 2022 Jason Williams: “Obviously, he’s going to be great,” Williams said. “I mean, don’t get me wrong. But I think it would be a little harder for him now because like you said the defenses have changed, and now he’s going to have three guys on the same side of the floor when he has the ball on the wing, whereas back in the day you just had one guy. -via ahnfiredigital.com / March 25, 2022
