Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

Soon-to-be superstar free agent LeBron James is evidently impressed by the young Los Angeles Lakers team.

Thomas, who was with the Cavaliers to start this season, was scoreless in the first quarter, missing all three of his shots. One of the top rumored destinations is the Los Angeles Lakers and on Sunday Night, the Cavs took on the Lakers.

With the win, the Lakers have now gone 7-2 after the All-Star break.

A 104-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday dropped them to 37-29, which places them seventh in the standings and just one game from 10th.

LeBron James had 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Cavaliers. He was the only Cleveland starter outside James to score in double-figures. But he made a decision to fool the Lakers and connect with Ante Zizic for the assist on the dunk.

"I only played 15 games with the Cavs, so it wasn't like it was a revenge game", Thomas said.

"No, I don't need to show anybody", Thomas said.

Boston led by 10 at halftime before point guard Kyrie Irving left the game with a sore left knee, joining absent big man Al Horford, who was home sick, and Jaylen Brown, who is in the concussion protocol. The world knows what I can do and what I bring to the table.

Seven Raptors players hit more than 10 points, with Kyle Lowry finishing on 16, four rebounds and seven assists.

James could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and the Lakers are tipped to land the 14-time NBA All Star.

Cleveland lost 127-113 to the Lakers on Sunday night, and when asked about the team's situation, James was blunt in why they were suffering.

After keeping the machine humming as the third-best team in the Western Conference for most of the season, the Spurs have started to tumble in the standings. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess". The Kid from Akron has played in 66 games with the Cavs this season, averaging 26.9 points on 54.3 percent shooting from the field (37.1 percent from beyond the arc), 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds.

Following the game, head coach Luke Walton had a huge amount of praise toward the 23- year-old calling his play against the Cavaliers a "pretty special" outing. "It is going to be a great energy, great environment for tonight". That helped Los Angeles hold a 33-29 advantage after 12 minutes of action.
