- Lakers’ James to miss at least two more games, both on road - January 16, 2019
LeBron James debuted as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, a 128-119 loss at the Portland trail Blazers.
For a fairly new (and still fairly young) team, the Lakers played well in spurts. They trailed just 101-100 before the Blazers erupted for an 18-6 run to put it away.
James finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds and six assists — showing again that, with LeBron, all is possible.
Anyway, you’ve already read my thoughts, probably more than you wanted. (If you haven’t read them, shame on you. But here’s another chance.)
Either way, it’s just one game. But you can still have a feel for what the Lakers need, why they might be good, or if a trade may be needed.
So leave your thoughts in the comments section below. I promise to hop in and join the conversation.
