Thomas scored 14 in the second half and shot 7-of-16 for the game with nine assists and five boards."If given the opportunity, I can play like that every night", Thomas said.

"And last week, billboards went up across the city with the message of "#LABron" in the hopes of luring James in the summer. Hood and Osman were hurt in Friday's loss to the Lakers at Staples Center.

While much of the damage was done by players who may not even be on the roster next season if James relocates, the Lakers' young guys had their fair share of impressive moments - no one more than Julius Randle. What do you think Lavar Ball is thinking right now?

James acknowledged the injuries and how they're hampering the team's play, but didn't express confidence when asked if the Cavaliers were heading in the right direction.

Lakers: Ingram was re-evaluated Sunday.

All five passengers died, but Vance survived. "Someone climbed out of the helicopter and then was on top of the yellow raft". A search and rescue operation began nearly immediately, with divers working to free the victims submerged in frigid water.


Such was the case in the second quarter, as James fooled everyone inside Staples Center with a no-look pass to teammate Ante Zizic for a dunk. He faced Kyle Korver, stared him down and forced two Lakers defenders at Korver on the left wing. Fans near courtside included Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, Chargers Pro Bowl receiver Keenan Allen, Rams All-Pro running back Todd Gurley, comedians Jerrod Carmichael and Marlon Wayans and former Lakers forward Lamar Odom. However, he did see opposite number Brook Lopez explode for a 22-point effort on 10-for-18 shooting, so his defensive work left something to be desired. "It's tough. I know we've got a lot of young guys playing and different lineups, but we've still got to play better".

Thomas did not have anything to prove against the Cavs - he finished fifth in the NBA MVP voting last season with the Celtics, right behind James - but his performance had to feel good.

I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine.

"I don't need to show anybody anything", Thomas said. Something I knew I could do. I only played 15 games with them, so it's really not about showing them what I can do.

Cleveland will try to beat up on the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday after a day off Monday.
