Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Joe Ingles scored 20 for Utah, which has won 11 straight on the road. He added nine assists and five rebounds off the bench.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - If this game was a Hollywood audition, the young Los Angeles Lakers certainly did well enough to impress budding entertainment mogul LeBron James.
Julius Randle had a career-high 36 points to go with 14 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks, leading the host Los Angeles Lakers to a 127-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night at Staples Center. In fact, Julius practically outproduced this previous two performances-during which he combined for 30 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists and one steal-with his monstrous performance opposite LeBron James and company.
The rebounding edge was particularly noticeable on the offensive end, where the Clippers and Lakers held a 27-15 advantage over the Cavaliers, and that is just one of many things that has Lue concerned going down the stretch of the regular season.
Uncertainty lingers over Trump's meeting in North Korea
North Korea is a dictatorship and an impoverished country, crippled by a failed economic system and harsh global sanctions . Kono also said Japan would be willing to provide money for International Atomic Energy Agency inspections if needed.
I.T. PROFESSIONAL: Thomas also shone in his first game against the Cavs since they ended their brief attempt to replace Kyrie Irving with the undersized scoring machine. He scored eight points in 2 ½ minutes early in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
James could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and the Lakers are tipped to land the 14-time NBA All Star.
The three-time National Basketball Association champion already has a reported $23 million mansion in Brentwood and a burgeoning career as an entertainment mogul, so a move to Hollywood could be a logical step off the court for the 33-year-old veteran.
