Los Angeles in the NBA Playoffs

Patrick Beverley takes another shot at'easy Lonzo Ball

ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy actually floated the idea over the weekend during Los Angeles' latest loss, its fifth straight, this one at home to Boston, 120-107.

Dallas lost for a sixth consecutive game as rookie Luka Doncic, playing with a sore right knee, was limited to 12 points on 5-of-18 shooting.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been in a freefall since January 19, losing 14 of their last 19 games in what can be described as one of the most disappointing seasons in team history. As such, the Lakers have been left with Lebron James and Rajan Rondo to lead the team.

On Thursday, coach Luke Walton said Ingram was experiencing pain whenever he lifted his right arm.

There weren't too many positive moments for the Lakers last year, but Ingram's call-up from the G League as a 32-year-old rookie was one of the best moments of the 2018 National Basketball Association season, especially when he dropped 19 points in his debut.

"Well, I loved his attitude", Walton said.

Trey Flowers to sign with the Lions
An 11-year veteran, Amendola has had a nice career after starting as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech in 2008. New England sent him to the Seahawks in 2017 for a seventh-round pick, and he recorded two decent seasons.

James played 33 minutes and showed no signs of letting up with the Lakers barely hanging on in the playoff race.

They trail San Antonio by 7 games for the final playoff spot.Los Angeles will nearly certainly miss the playoffs for a franchise-record sixth straight season, and James likely will stay home for the first time since 2005. I think they need to start asking questions like "What are we doing wrong here?'"

The Lakers went 15-8 when LeBron James, Ingram and Ball all played this season. The Lakers, 30-36 on the year, are in the midst of a five-game losing streak and have basically conceded the possibility of a playoff spot.

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (23) dunks the ball against the Chicago Bulls in the second half at the United Center.

"You've got to put everything on the table", Van Gundy retorted. Ingram particularly excelled after the All-Star break and the trade deadline, averaging 27.8 points in his six most recent games. Obviously at the end of the day, I got to make sure I don't make the damage worse.
