Short of a historical collapse on the part of the Los Angeles Clippers, Utah Jazz or San Antonio Spurs, and an unforeseen win tear from the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James is set to miss the post-season for the first time since the 2004-05 season, his sophomore season in the National Basketball Association.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points off the bench, Kyle Kuzma scored 21, Rajon Rondo had 14 points and 10 assists and JaVale McGee finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers.

IN snapped its two-game losing streak and remained tied with Philadelphia for the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference.

It happened during the team's game against the Bulls, with the Lakers taking advantage of a great opportunity to put an end to their losing streak. "I think if we can do that the next 15 games, lay it all out there, it's all we can really ask at this point".

Khris Middleton added 23 points, Malcolm Brogdon scored 18, Eric Bledsoe and former Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic had 14 each and Brook Lopez 13.

Collin Sexton led the Cavaliers with 26 points, including a layup with 3:10 left that pulled Cleveland within one.

Jalen Brunson scored a career-high 34 points for the Mavericks and Dwight Powell added 20.

Woj focused on how the Bulls have a core of players that are 25 years old or younger in Otto Porter, Wendell Carter Jr., Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points as the Milwaukee Bucks produced a 45-point third-quarter to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans 130-113.

Darren Collison made two free throws with 19.5 seconds left on the clock to help the Indiana Pacers beat the New York Knicks 103-98 and keep them tied with Philadelphia for third spot in the Eastern Conference. JJ Redick scored 17 points for the Sixers, who were without Jimmy Butler as he was held out for a planned rest day.

Meanwhile, Chicago was on a recent hot streak, winning five of six before cooling off in a hurry in losing four of their last five games, including an embarrassing loss in Detroit Sunday, 131-108.

NY lost its seventh straight despite getting 21 points from Emmanuel Mudiay and 18 from Damyean Dotson.
