Lowry, Ibaka lead Raptors to dominating win over Lakers as Leonard sits

The art of transition defence Danny Green on timing reading and rhythm

The loss was bad and in that loss LeBron James had his worst game as a member of the Lakers.

Once their starters had seized command the Raptors worked some of their reserve players into the contest. While they are scoring the third most points per game in the National Basketball Association at 118.9, Los Angeles is giving up a whopping 120.0 points per contest, which is 27th in the league.

"I don't really like to talk about it being disappointing. He's using his size, his power, and using pretty good footwork, so it's something we can go to". He didn't miss a shot until an unsuccessful turnaround jumper midway through the third quarter. He also added 10 rebounds. "I knew Kawhi was out tonight, so I just wanted to go out there and do my best".

Leonard injured his left foot late in the fourth quarter of Toronto's win at Phoenix on Friday night, and coach Nick Nurse says the Raptors are being careful with their superstar.

Gottlieb points out here what James could have done differently. If there was a mercy rule in basketball the Lakers would have exercised it in the first.

USA sanctions will not force immediate crisis in Iran
That would entail banning Iran from returning to enrichment activities. "We are in the economic war situation", he said. China and the European Union have both expressed opposition to the United States sanctions.

"If teams are going to play small like that and they're gonna switch, then we can send him inside and he can either hurt them with the deep catch post-up, or hurt them on the glass", Nurse said.

That said, back-to-back or not, the Jazz are likely in for a challenge when the team that appears to be the best in the East comes to town. They haven't looked solid on either side of the ball during their recent three-game losing streak, and without their prolific leading scorer, I don't see that changing on Monday. "I passed it, and they knocked down everything". Just as bad as you can play for a month you're going to round out a great month or two.

Seven other Bucks were in double figures. Serge Ibaka had 14 points, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks off the bench.

In New York, D'Angelo Russell scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half, and the Brooklyn Nets kept the Philadelphia 76ers winless on the road with a 122-97 win.
