LeBron James unleashed a gorgeous no-look pass that fooled everybody

LeBron James unleashed a gorgeous no-look pass that fooled everybody

LeBron James added a few more incredible passes to his highlight reel on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. Julius Randle had a career-high 36 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers auditioned for LeBron James' favor in free agency with a 127-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. While LeBron James rightly takes the top spot (31.1 percent usage), some other players ahead of Hill (Jeff Green, Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr.) seem out of place. If they decide to wait until next year, they can go after Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors, Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs, Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics, and Jimmy Butler of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Cleveland Cavaliers might not have played the prettiest game in a 127-113 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, but that didn't stop LeBron James from making one pass that's a thing of beauty.

They might've come to see James but instead watched the Lakers make one big final impression on the free-agent-to-be.

"Sometimes you just can't overcome this many injuries that we have", James said.

"We're just connecting at both ends, and we're able to really establish the way that we want to play", Randle said.

The Raptors had no letdown after edging NBA-leading Houston on Friday in a matchup of the No. 1 teams in each conference, leading much of the game even with All-Star DeMar DeRozan shooting just 4 for 16 for nine points.

"I had the challenge of guarding the best player in the game, so you know I loved to take that challenge and take it personally", Randle said.

Thomas said afterward that he had nothing to prove and that this was not a revenge game for him. When a player like James notices that the franchise is getting better, that is certainly a good sign for the Lakers. As a team, the Nuggets shot 56 percent from the field and 15 of 37 from the three-point line as they dominated the Kings by 17 points in the first half before putting the game to bed with a 35-19 third quarter.

Brandon Ingram will miss at least the next two games as he continues to rehab from a strained left groin he suffered earlier this month in Miami. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess". "They know what I can do".
