There hasn't been much for Lakers fans to be excited about this season, but LeBron James and Josh Hart treated fans to a highlight-reel play on Tuesday night.

"I always feel bouncy", he said.

It has not been a good stretch for the Los Angeles Lakers, but they were able to snap a five-game losing streak on Tuesday night.

James played 33 minutes and showed no signs of letting up with the Lakers barely hanging on in the playoff race. He took over after the Lakers' 14-point lead was cut to four with 8:38 left, making a jumper and then on the next possession going through the lane for a thunderous dunk.

James was asked if he had any special thoughts returning to the United Center.

Beto O'Rourke will announce on Thursday that he is running for president in 2020, according to El Paso TV station KTSM-TV. Meanwhile, a source tied to O'Rourke's campaign confirmed to Reuters that the ex-congressman would be running.

Whether James was smothering Derrick Rose in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals for the Miami Heat or sinking buzzer-beating game-winners over Jimmy Butler in the 2015 Conference semi-finals for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he has had his Chicago moments.

The Lakers scored 16 points in the first quarter, and the Bulls closed with an 11-1 run to take an 18-point lead into the second quarter.

In July 2018, Ingram was hoping he would get invited to the Lakers training camp after the addition of LeBron James. With several players out, the Lakers started rookie Moritz Wagner. Everybody just had a joy for the game, happy for each other, everybody was moving the ball, passing it. Kyle Kuzma picked up the loose ball and tossed ant outlet pass that bounces once, right into LeBron's path. "So he's frustrated with it too, and he's continuing to battle out there, and he did a really nice job of helping us get a win tonight". The Lakers' defense held Chicago to just 40.2% shooting, including 29.0% from three-point range, while they connected to the tune of 46.3% from the field.

Robin Lopez scored 20 points, Otto Porter Jr. had 19 points and nine rebounds and Kris Dunn finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and nine assists for Chicago.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points as the Milwaukee Bucks produced a 45-point third-quarter to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans 130-113.
