"Sometimes you have to understand it is not a show, but a competition. When you get down early, it hurts your confidence, and now you've got to fight and try to win your game".

The Cavaliers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday to increase their lead over the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association standings in the Eastern Conference.

Lue said Love already was scheduled to sit out this game in his comeback from left knee surgery, and Irving left Thursday's game at Utah early with tightness in his own left knee. Join the King James Gospel team! Enough ink will be spilled over them elsewhere, I'll not to talk about it too much here.

D'Angelo Russell, who hit seven 3-pointers, scored a career-high 40 points for the Lakers, who lost their fifth in a row.

Fil-American guard Jordan Clarkson had 19 points, Brandon Ingram scored 18, while Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac had 10 points each.

Swallow the 2.5 points to take the Clippers to win at home and cover over the visiting Cavaliers. They never trailed again.

Young paced the Lakers' attack with 32 points. It was as ugly as could be - 16-14 after one frame, 24-24 midway through the second. "We just had to figure out a way to weather the storm". His layup with 5:06 left tied the score at 104.

Second judge blocks revised Trump travel ban
The case is one of several moving through U.S. courts, brought by states' attorneys general and immigrant advocacy groups. Noting that the populations of the countries is over 90% Muslim, the judge found the order still amounts to a Muslim ban.

There were extenuating circumstances behind Lue's decision, namely the health of Love and Irving, who were both recovering from knee ailments. "In the fourth quarter, there's no need to be nervous, no need to feel any type of pressure if there is such a thing. You don't play the night before and you don't play the next night after".

But first, Harrison and Anthony discussed the Lakers-Bucks fight, Draymond Green's comments on Russell, as well as Harrison's latest hot take.

"Having the best player in the world and Kyrie and Kevin, we should at least get into the playoffs, worst case scenario", coach Tyronn Lue said.

Walton wasn't surprised James and Irving, who combined for 28 points in the final period and 47 in the second half, rallied the Cavs. That's why they're two of the best. "They didn't get a chance to see that and that's not cool", Rivers said. His 29.8 points per game since then are surpassed only by Russell Westbrook's 34.5, per CBS Sports.

"Now these games on Saturday night allow the scheduling guys to [have teams] play the night before". Rivers coached the Magic from 1999-03. Kyle Korver also missed his sixth straight game with a foot injury.

That should be a different story on Sunday evening, when the Cavaliers hope to have their All-Star trio back in action to wrap up their annual visit to Tinseltown.

Starting Monday night at Staples Center against the New York Knicks, the Clippers next three opponents all have losing records.
