"The best thing is he's doing it with some real good composure".

The Lakers are back in action at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. LeBron plays 28 minutes and score 18 points while Kyle Kuzma drops a team-leading 24. Only time will tell if those changes will help the Lakers win more games in the rugged Western Conference.

"We allowed them to go wherever they wanted to go, however they wanted to go, and they got into a comfort zone". "We got off to an unbelievable start".


"They just came out and hit us right in the mouth".

One way to keep him fresh is not to play him on consecutive nights, Nurse said, adding, "I don't think we've decided how long that's gonna be yet". "There's a sense of freedom and joy that comes when a top player like that is out".

Raptors: Leonard has sat out three of his first 10 games with Toronto, missing two games last month to manage his workload coming back from last season's injury struggles.


Leonard jammed his left foot late in the fourth quarter of Toronto's win over the Phoenix Suns Friday night, sitting out the game's final 2:42 as a precaution.

There was no word on whether Leonard would potentially be available for Monday night's game in Utah against the Jazz. Denzel Washington, Snoop Dogg, Adam Levine, Kristen Bell and Odell Beckham Jr. were among the celebrities attending the game.

The Lakers' first quarter was shockingly bad.


"They have been playing like they are the best team in the Eastern Conference so far", James said, per ESPN, of Toronto (9-1), who were led by 34 points from Serge Ibaka.
