Eastern Conference executive says LaMelo Ball needs to rework jumper before NBA Draft wp.me/p97u1L-597
Dana White on Tom Brady being in Las Vegas tonight at the fight and talking to Raiders owner Mark Davis: "If that dude is not playing in Boston, he's playing here."
New story: With Russell Westbrook rolling, Rajon Rondo put on his coaching hat and challenged Kyle Kuzma to guard him. It worked and L.A. kept up their winning ways, improving to 4-1 since Anthony Davis went out es.pn/2NCdilN
Reporter: "How big would a fight between Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson be?"
Dana White: "Conor McGregor and this guy with the camera would be a big fight."
Dwight & AD coaxing louder cheers from a friendly road crowd. Technicals for standing up? “We’re not gonna change. We’ll take those techs.” How the Lakers bench mob became the swaggering, soul-crushing faces of the NBA’s biggest and baddest nightly party. theathletic.com/1544850/2020/0…
Dana White doesn't want Conor McGregor to box. He thinks a Conor rematch with Khabib has the potential to do numbers on par with what a Floyd rematch would do. That's the fight he wants to make.
Dana White has been in touch with Floyd Mayweather throughout the night. "We're doing something with Floyd. Floyd is in our plans and we're in Floyd's plans. We'll be doing something with Floyd this year."
NEW COLUMN: As much as Conor McGregor had matured and changed outside the Octagon during his 15-month layoff, he gave fans a glimpse of the old McGregor inside of it Saturday night at UFC 246 with a TKO win over Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in 40 seconds. latimes.com/sports/story/2…
From Houston, where the Lakers made impressive second-half adjustments to drum out the Rockets on the road: ocregister.com/2020/01/18/lak…

Welcome back Champ!! @TheNotoriousMMA. 🙏🏾💪🏾
Kyle Kuzma on playing defense on Russ and how he's grown there in his career: " For me that’s what I want to do every game, to come out and prove myself defensively. It’s hard to shake narratives. People say I don’t play defense, but I know what I’m doing."
What a WIN by the Lakers, 124-115 over the Rockets. Dominate on Defense in the 2nd half without AD
-Kuzma 23pts (Changed game with D on Westbrook)
-THE KING, LBJ 31pts 12ast
-Green 20pts 4stls
-KCP 20pts 2stls
-Dwight & JaVale 3blks each
34-8 on Season, @ Celtics on Monday...
Lakers Ground Rockets In Huge Road Win pscp.tv/w/cPPN2zFlV0t5…
With LeBron at the foul line fans serenade him with the standard “M-V-P” chant. Dwight loves it. pic.twitter.com/0pzK1vjebp
FINAL: Lakers 124, Rockets 115.
A 65-point second half from the Lakers while holding the Rockets to 50. Kuzma rallied with 23 points, and KCP had a stealth 20 points. Big win without Anthony Davis.
Well, how about that for a palate cleanser? After losing to Orlando on Wednesday, the Lakers rally to beat Houston 124-115. Four players with at least 20 points, including 31 from LeBron and 23 from Kuzma.
Lakers beat the Rockets 124-115 to improve to 34-8. LeBron 31p 12a, left the court to MVP chants from the Houston crowd; Kuzma 23p 8r (10p in 4th Q); KCP 20p; Green 20p; Dwight 6p 10r; JaVale 9p 8r. Boston up next on Monday.
Standing O from the Lakers fans in Houston as LeBron James checks out with 31 points, 12 assists and 5 rebounds.
With 1:30 remaining in fourth quarter:
Lakers: 122, Rockets: 110.
Danny Green and LeBron James,
What a second half from the @Los Angeles Lakers.
Back-to-back Danny Green and LeBron threes have put this one to bed.
‘M-V-P!’ chants for LeBron James. 👀

"Let's go Lakers" chants as loud in Houston as I've heard them at any road stop.
The crowd is chanting "Let's go Lakers" and Anthony Davis is waving his fingers toward them like an orchestra conductor.
With 5:41 remaining in fourth quarter:
Lakers: 110, Rockets: 94.
At halftime, Kyle Kuzma had 6 points and 3 rebounds.
With 5:41 left in the game, he's got 23 points and 8 rebounds.
Houston fans are leaving. Lakers fans are jubilantly cheering, "LET'S GO LAKERS!"
Lakers up by 16.
Terrific game plan from Frank Vogel, breaking out the extra aggressive traps on James Harden and either taking the ball out of his hands or forcing direct turnovers, as they just did to get a layup for Green, then a putback layup for Kuzma off a missed Daniels 3. LAL up 110-94.
Two straight 3’s from Lebron (missed both of them)...Please don’t settle for 3’s
Good timeout from Frank Vogel. LAL scoring easily with LeBron picking passes out (11 assists), but the defense dropped off a bit in the last 2 minutes, HOU scoring on 3 of 4 trips that led to the time out. LAL still lead 104-92 with 7:41 to play. LeBron’s at 30 minutes.
With 7:41 remaining in fourth quarter:
Lakers: 104, Rockets: 92.
LAL’s bench has been excellent tonight, with @Kentavious Caldwell-Pope being a good example, now up to 17 points with an and-1 FT coming after a big dunk in transition that gave LAL their biggest lead at 99-85.
Glad my Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tweets were not too critical earlier this season…
Most of you need to delete them, haha.
With 9:29 remaining in fourth quarter:
Lakers: 99, Rockets: 85.
Some really great cuts tonight by Green and KCP. KCP just beat Capela down the floor for a dunk to put the Lakers up 99-85.
KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE DUNK.
KYL3 KUZMA X 3.
