Lakers kick off two-game trip with visit to Timberwolves

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

But Kuzma looked like a player coming off an injury that had him out multiple games.

The forward was hurt during Wednesday's loss to the Thunder and was out of the game at halftime. "That's tough", said Hart, who contributed 13 points and 15 rebounds.

National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James, who has already missed four games with a strained left groin, will miss at least three more before being re-evaluated, the Los Angeles Lakers announced Friday. Dallas is 18-21 on the season, 15-3 at home, 24-15 against the spread and 20-19 with the over.

James ranks 5th in the National Basketball Association in scoring with 27.3 points a game and is also averaging 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists a game. Guard Rajon Rondo is recovering from surgery on his finger in late December and won't return until at least late January, and Kyle Kuzma missed Friday's game against the Knicks and is questionable for Sunday. We need more fight.

How do their struggles change the perception of them going forward as prospects and what impact could that shift make on the upcoming trade deadline?

Ingram scored 29 points and Ball added 21 as the Los Angeles Lakers handed the Mavericks a rare home loss, 107-97, on Monday night.

Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers waves to the crowd against the Utah Jazz on April 13, 2016 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California. We just couldn't get over the hump for whatever reason. The under is 7-3 in Lakers last 10 overall.

Dallas' defense has also been a problem too. We can't afford to take possessions off at this point. All five were in the negative while on the floor at Philadelphia, with Doncic and Barnes each a minus-18 in their 26-plus minutes.

But since then, the Lakers have lost direction, something that was very aptly captured in their last game against the Timberwolves, where in they were playing catch up all through to the final quarter.
