Thomas - who shot a few glares at good friend Floyd Mayweather Jr., seated near the Cavs' bench, after making a couple of baskets - had what might have been his best all-around game for the Lakers with 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds.

LeBron James literally started walking without taking a dribble, and no travel was called. James finished with a near triple-double (24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists), but 16 of those points came in the first half, when the game was close. His ever-impressive work on both the scoreboard and glass combined with the Lakers' league-high pace of play has his fantasy stock soaring the fantasy postseason approaches. Nance scored 16 points with eight rebounds while Clarkson scored four points with four assists.

The Los Angeles Lakers upset the Cleveland Cavaliers in the National Basketball Association as LeBron James and Lonzo Ball did battle on Sunday.

Forward Kyle Korver admitted his teams was lacking the presence of many key assets of this team, which has turned the mood rather sour, as Cleveland has only won four of the last 10 games with 15 games left in the season.

The Lakers - now the 3rd-ranked team in the Pacific Division standings with a 30-36 overall record - will be back in action on Tuesday night, as they're scheduled to host the Denver Nuggets inside the Staples Center.

"I just feel like we've got to treat every team like Golden State". Los Angeles emphatically snapped its seven-game losing streak against Cleveland.

Iwobi made his 19th PL appearance of the season, while goalkeeper Petr Cech kept his 200th clean sheet in the league. That's mainly because the duo played together at Borussia Dortmund before Mkhitaryan was sold to Manchester United.

In exchange for Thomas, the Cavaliers received Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

Dario Saric scored 18 points and Ben Simmons had 11 points, six assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who were able to avenge a disappointing loss to the Nets at Barclays Center in January.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered to bring Perkins on to the staff after the preseason.

"It was something I always knew I could do", Randle said. "He bullied us the whole night, and we had no answer for him".

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.
