I’m out for the season officially. 🤦🏾‍♂️. See y’all in the fall. 👑✌🏾 – 1:09 PM Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel

LeBron James and Anthony Davis are expected to be in uniform for tonight’s matchup between the Pelicans and Lakers. But don’t overlook this New Orleans team when healthy.

Global Tech News Daily

For instance, the CJ-Herb-BI-Jaxson-Jonas lineup has a +11.6 net rating. That’s 🔥! https://t.co/3sPqRi1YWC pic.twitter.com/azJxO5ZXCr – 1:03 PM

The video pod for Episode 4 of the In Street Clothes podcast is now up. @BrianSuttererMD and I discuss

Robert Williams, LeBron James, Steph Curry, MLB news & more! youtu.be/gxwDHf7MV9s via @YouTube – 11:39 AM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

“Once you get there, it’s 0-0.”

The Lakers continue to remain optimistic about making the Play-In Tournament. It’s clear, though, that their only shot is a timely return from LeBron James and/or Anthony Davis, which could come as soon as tonight. theathletic.com/3222914/2022/0… – 11:38 AM Tas Melas @TasMelas

My All-NBA Teams:

1st — Booker, Luka, Giannis, Tatum, Jokic

2nd — Ja, Steph, Durant, DeMar, Embiid

3rd — CP, Trae, LeBron, Siakam, Towns – 10:41 AM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Vogel said they believe they’ll get LeBron and AD back at some point – tomorrow remains a possibility – and that represents hope that they can get to the play-in tourney, which represents hope that they can get into the playoffs. – 12:36 AM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

Final: Jazz 122, Lakers 109

The Lakers lose their fourth consecutive game. They drop to 31-45 and back to 11th in the West and out of the Play-In tournament. LeBron James and Anthony Davis’ returns are the only thing that’ll keep LA in the hunt.

Up next: vs. Pelicans tomorrow. – 12:21 AM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Final: Utah 122, LAL 109.

Jazz hit 15 3’s to LAL’s 7, helping them win their first game against LAL this season (1-2).

The Lakers played without LeBron (ankle) and Davis (foot), who will both be evaluated ahead of Friday’s game against New Orleans back in L.A. – 12:21 AM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

FINAL: Jazz 122, Lakers 109.

Lakers drop their 4th game in a row. They’re again tracking to be out of the play-in, tied in the standings with San Antonio. Sets up a massive night tomorrow against New Orleans, when AD and LeBron may return. – 12:21 AM Marc Stein @TheSteinLine

The Lakers’ LeBron James plans to play Friday at home against New Orleans if his left ankle holds up in pregame testing, league sources say.

More NBA from me: marcstein.substack.com – 11:29 PM Matt Williams @StatsWilliams

To cap off the month of March, DeMar DeRozan recorded a 50-point game.

There have been 9 50-point games this month from:

Kyrie Irving (2x)

LeBron James (2x)

Saddiq Bey

Kevin Durant

Karl-Anthony Towns

Jayson Tatum

DeMar DeRozan – 10:57 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Giannis — 30.1 PPG

Embiid — 30.0 PPG

The last time we’ve had three 30-PPG scorers was in 2005-06 (Kobe, LeBron, Iverson). pic.twitter.com/fIYPD1OAg9 – 10:22 PM

Russell Westbrook – 9:58 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Utah has lost 5 straight, but Snyder said they’re 30-11 when they have their full rotation, which should be available tonight (aside from backup C Hassan Whiteside).

The Lakers have only had LeBron, Davis and Westbrook for 20 games this season, and tonight, have no LeBron or AD. – 8:35 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

Frank Vogel confirms that both LeBron James and Anthony Davis are out tonight in Utah. – 8:33 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

New @FrontOfficeShow is up! @Trevor_Lane and I talked the cap/tax going up, Randle saying he doesn’t want a trade, Mobley out for a bit, LBJ & AD coming back soon, a kind-of update on Murry & MPJ and more. Watch, like and subscribe below! Almost to 17K!

youtu.be/KGV04VB49oQ – 5:51 PM Anthony Puccio @APOOCH

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant face off tonight at 7:30.

• Giannis: 29.9 PPG on 55.2% FG

• KD: 29.7 PPG on 52.1% FG

• LeBron: 30.1 PPG on 52.3% FG

The last time two players averaged at least 29 points on 50% shooting: David Robinson & Shaq in 1993-94. – 5:34 PM David Thorpe @coachthorpe

Random tweet #3. I don’t envy media members choosing All-NBA this year. LeBron is amazing but his team sucks. Top 3 players all play some or mostly at center. Everyone guards everyone now, more or less. Siakam and Tatum have been elite for months now, after rougher starts. Hard. – 4:30 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

LeBron James vs Fathers/Sons.

Last game against Gary Payton: April 5, 2007
