Kyle Kuzma eager to see 'death lineup' from Los Angeles Lakers


Yet, at 22-19, the Lakers have the eighth-best record in the Western Conference at the halfway point of the regular season and are only 2½ games behind the LA Clippers, the West's No. 4 team. The Mavericks have won 13 of their last 14 at American Airlines Center, outscoring opponents by 10.6 points per game and limiting teams to 102.2 points during that run. We need more fight.

"I put so much responsibility on them because that's what I believe they're capable of doing, " Walton said. Those are the same Cavaliers who now hold the league's worst record at 8-32 and are now teaching a master class in tanking (hello, Cameron Payne signing!) by either trading off or exiling players who could help them win. Despite this, the Lakers should be wary of making a deal that has long-term repercussions, and here we will look at three players that the Lakers should avoid making deals for.

Trump May Raid Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Funds for Border Wall
Trump is growing more frustrated as the shutdown drags on and is complaining that his aides are not offering him an exit strategy. Trump wants $5.7 billion to build the wall, which during the 2016 campaign he repeatedly promised to build once in office.

With Kyle Kuzma now nursing an injury to his back and Rajon Rondo out for an extended period of time, the Lakers are scrambling for answers on offense.

Many Trump critics posted messages on social media urging the networks not to air an address that could be filled with falsehoods. Trump said he will not approve spending bills without funding for the wall, while Democrats say they won't approve the funding.

To the team's credit, James has already made progress. Instead, Ball went scoreless for the second time this season, and Ingram needed 15 shots to score 13 points. Defensively, the Lakers are giving up 111.4 points per game while holding opponents to shooting 44.6 percent from the field. I thought our guys did a nice job staying composed, continuing to share the ball, continuing to make plays. Ingram is still looking to find his footing, however, even alongside James. That has led Ingram to actually play better when James is off the court.

"That's what I was anxious about past year when they wanted to trade him and Ingram". During the six-game stretch he's shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 23.1 percent from beyond the arc with more turnovers (21) than assists (20) and almost as many shots (102) as points (111).
