LeBron 'not sitting' games as Lakers hopes fade

NBA Los Angeles Clippers at Los Angeles Lakers

Both LeBron James and Rajon Rondo went down with injuries which shifted the momentum of the season and ended up pushing the Lakers out of a playoff spot.

The Los Angeles Clippers look for another win after winning five of their last seven games.

"They would have made the playoffs if he wasn't injured".

Danilo Gallinari scored 23 points, Lou Williams added 21 and the Clippers dealt another blow to the Lakers' fading play-off hopes with a 113-105 victory.

Like Beverley, the Clippers just keep grinding and proving people wrong as they've won three straight and are in seventh place in the Western Conference standings despite trading away their leading scorer and rebounder, Tobias Harris, at the trade deadline.

Trump again slams Cohen, Democrats: 'I am an innocent man'
He said he was being "sarcastic" when he asked Russian Federation to find Clinton's emails and was having fun with his audience. Later he tweeted that Democrats were trying to switch from collusion to some other reason to impeach him.

Luke Walton of the Los Angeles Lakers looks on during the second half against the New Orleans Pelicans at Staples Center on February 27 in Los Angeles, California. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.5 rebounds per game. This season, LeBron and Co. are 8-5 ATS when they have lost two or more games in a row and 18-30 (37.5%) ATS in all other games.

"This team doesn't have that Kevin Love that he had a year ago".

Ingram, who missed eight games in December (ankle) and four in October (suspension) before finding a terrific offensive groove after the All-Star break, came out of the weekend losses against Milwaukee and Phoenix with a sore shoulder that forced him out of Monday's loss to the Clippers.

While suggestions LeBron could reach the NBA Finals for the ninth consecutive season always seemed overly optimistic, the thought of him not guiding the Lakers to the playoffs would have been ridiculed at the beginning of the campaign. The real issue that this team needs to tackle moving forward is the roster. "I haven't been a part of a season with this many injuries to all of our key guys".

The Lakers are now 6-1 to make the playoffs and desperately need a win, especially against a division rival also fighting for a playoff berth. It's the last one.
