Pacers thump Lakers 136-94, Clippers rally

  • Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and forward Pau Gasol

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 24 points and the Indiana Pacers tied an National Basketball Association record by making 19 3-pointers in a 136-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, handing LeBron James the most lopsided loss of his career.

The Lakers agreed to send their entire young core of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac to the Pelicans, as well as veteran guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the two people said. "Not worth trading", the Pacers fans sang. But when talking about it after the game, Ingram didn't seem too phased by it, stating, "I still made [both] free throws". The Pacers won 136-94, the worst-ever loss for LeBron James in a game he's played in. He is the fifth player to reach the milestone.

Wright said: "It would be the right thing for the Lakers to trade the future for a 25-year-old superstar Anthony Davis". Paul has worked to keep the process moving toward a perception of inevitability on Davis' preferred future destination, the Lakers, where he could join another Klutch client, LeBron James. Thaddeus Young finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.

"Obviously, it's on everyone's mind", Gentry said Wednesday. "At the end of the day, we gotta figure a way to block it out and still perform and play".


This is what makes trade talks so hard. That would leave just a handful of players on the Lakers' roster that have not been discussed in the negotiations. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined.

Davis hasn't played since January 19 due to a hand injury, but was cleared for practice Monday. The trade deadline will pass Thursday, so those "LeBron's going to trade you" chants should die down after that.

To even consider dealing the six-time All-Star before the deadline, the Pelicans are waiting on the Los Angeles Lakers to "overwhelm them" with an offer that includes four first-round draft picks in addition to second-round picks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
