Nikola Jokic tonight:

✅ 22 PTS

✅ 13 REB

✅ 8 AST

It’s the 43rd time Jokic has recorded at least 20p/10r/5a in a game this season, 16 more than any other player.

The only player since the ABA-NBA merger to record more such games in a single season is Russell Westbrook (49). pic.twitter.com/wdjVlovxkE – 10:14 PM

LeBron James will play tonight.

He was a true game-time decision due to soreness in the knee he’s been dealing with since late January, particularly with LAL playing last night.

But he’ll be in the lineup against Toronto, again starting at the 5. – 9:55 PM Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU

Cleveland sweeps season series with Clippers, win 120-111 in OT.

Clippers fall to 35-34 overall, 2-3 on this final 5-in-7, and 0-3 in overtime games.

That’s it for Eastern Time Zone games for Clips. They return home Wednesday to host Raptors.

Isaac Okoro: 20 points, 11/13 FTs. – 9:46 PM Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR

VanVleet’s in and OG was getting in a good pre-game workout on the court and should practice tomorrow – 9:18 PM Michael Grange @michaelgrange

“We like sunshine? Is that it?” — Nurse on Raptors record vs. Lakers in LA, where Toronto hasn’t lost since Nov. 30th, 2014. Raptors have won 12 of 13 overall vs. Lakers, their only loss coming in Tampa last season. – 9:17 PM Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050

Nurse said he’ll wait to see what the Lakers’ lineup looks like (LeBron?) before committing to a starting C for tonight. He indicated that it could be a fluid thing night-to-night depending on matchup, although it sure sounded like he’s leaning Achiuwa over Birch for now. – 9:15 PM Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050

OG Anunoby had a follow up with the hand specialist in LA today. The small fracture in his finger hasn’t fully healed yet, so he and the team have to decide whether to give it more time or try to play through it. Plan is for him to test it out in practice tomorrow. – 9:12 PM Michael Grange @michaelgrange

Anunoby got fractured ring finger finger looked at in LA today. Finger has not healed but he will practice Tuesday and may opt to play in near future, or not, says Nurse. – 9:12 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Nick Nurse asked why the Raptors generally play so well in L.A.: “We like the sunshine.” – 9:11 PM Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose

Nick Nurse says he’s going to decide between Khem or Precious tonight based on who the Lakers start (re if LeBron James plays). Says that could be the case moving forward. NOTE: He’s talked about changing the starting lineup night to night before and never actually done it – 9:09 PM Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob

Nick Nurse says OG Anunoby still has a slight fracture but will try to practice tomorrow and gauge where he’s at from there. – 9:08 PM Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose

Lakers coach Frank Vogel said LeBron James remains a game-time decision for tonight’s game vs the Raptors – 8:55 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Without Dwight Howard, and LeBron still a question mark, chances are Wenyen Gabriel will see more minutes, with LAL having few frontcourt options.

Vogel: “He has a compelling skillset. Very athletic and long, and can make plays defensively … he (can also) shoot the three.” – 8:49 PM Doug Smith @SmithRaps

LeBron James will warm up and then they’ll decide if he plays against the Raptors tonight.

We should learn about VanVleet n 15 minutes or so – 8:48 PM Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050

LeBron is a true game-time decision vs the Raptors. Lakers had talked about giving him some rest in back-to-backs but he’s going to warm up and they’ll make a call from there. – 8:47 PM Eric Koreen @ekoreen

LeBron James is a “true gametime decision” according to Frank Vogel. No Dwight. – 8:46 PM Dave McMenamin @mcten

Isiah Thomas was done at 32. Allen Iverson was a part-timer at 33. Russell Westbrook is struggling mightily at 33. Scoring PGs burn out

Steph Curry, 34 today, seems to be a different breed nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio… – 8:14 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

LeBron was 7th on the all time scoring list the last time he beat the Raptors.
