Fake LeBron James Jersey

LOS ANGELES — A collision with Patrick Beverley Jersey For Sale in the first quarter of the Lakers’ 111-106 loss Wednesday night to the Clippers caused LeBron James Jersey For Sale to aggravate a nagging groin injury and could cause the Lakers star to Discount Jerseys For Sale miss some game time moving forward.

“I felt healthy going into the game,” James said after finishing with 23 points on 9-for-24 shooting, with 10 assists and 9 rebounds. “I got kneed in the groin taking a charge from Pat Bev, and it kind of set me right back to where I was five days ago.”

Last Christmas, James suffered a torn left groin against the Golden State Warriors Jerseys For Sale — the first major injury of his career — and it derailed both his and his team’s season.

The injury that James is currently dealing with is on the right side of his groin and is far less dire than the injury he suffered to the left side of his groin last season, but it could worsen with overuse.

James told ESPN the contact with Beverley caused the groin area to “flare up.” James’ play clearly suffered from there. Ten of his 15 misses were on 3-pointers — the most 3s he has ever missed in a game in his 17-year career — and he attempted just four foul shots, as his drives to the lane were limited.

James was coming off both the groin discomfort and a thoracic muscle strain — a pull in the rib cage area — which caused him to miss a game for the first time season. The Lakers lost that game 128-104 at home to the Denver Nuggets Jerseys For Sale on Sunday.

Even though the Lakers are now riding a season-worst, four-game losing streak, several members of the organization already have approached James about the urgency to sit out and rehab his groin injury until he feels fully recovered, sources told ESPN.

The Lakers have a back-to-back set coming up — at the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday, followed by the Dallas Mavericks at home on Sunday. James, who has repeatedly rejected the notion of load management already this season, is listed as day-to-day by the team.

“To be honest, I haven’t even thought about Portland just yet,” said James, who will turn 35 next week. “I’m always around the clock with my body, getting my treatment. If I’m feeling great, I’ll be in the lineup. If I’m feeling well, I’ll be in the lineup.

“We’ll see what happens.”

The Lakers are anticipating needing James for six more months of basketball should they make a deep postseason run, and their priority is the big picture.

“It’s still another game,” forward Kyle Kuzma said after the Christmas loss. “We’re in December. We got a couple more months of basketball.”

Not that the Lakers were completely comfortable with the defeat, of course.

After leading by 12 points at the half and by as many as 15 in the third quarter, there was a sense that they had blown a golden opportunity to even up the season series with their Staples Center cohabitants 1-1.

“We gave that one away,” Anthony Davis Jersey For Sale said after putting up 24 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocks. “We had the game, we were in control of the entire game; even though we let them get back in it, we were still leading by, I think, seven with six minutes to go. That’s a game you’ve got to close out, so like I said, we gave that one away.”

Indeed, James’ 22-foot step-back jumper with 6 minutes, 39 seconds remaining in the game put the Lakers up by seven, and the Clippers responded with a 13-2 run in the following four minutes to take control.

“We just beat ourselves, plain and simple,” Kuzma said. “Obviously, credit to Clippers for making shots down the stretch. But we just beat ourselves.”

The Lakers had possession with 19.2 seconds left, trailing by 3 with a chance to tie it, but James lost the ball out of bounds after Beverley poked at the ball during James’ shooting motion with 3.6 seconds on the clock.

The ball was called out on Beverley. But after an officials review, the call was overturned, as the referees determined that the ball was last touched by James. The play was registered as a missed shot by James, rather than a turnover.

“I was surprised by the overturn,” James said. “I didn’t feel like the ball went off my hand. But that’s the way it went.”

While James preached about the Lakers’ need for the team to “just be better” as the season progresses, there was still confidence coming from another corner of their locker room.

“We’re still the best team,” center Dwight Howard Jersey For Sale said. “After tonight, let it go. It’s just another game. Of course, we all wanted it. I think everybody in L.A. that’s a Lakers fan wanted to see us win tonight. But like I told you guys a couple days ago, we want to be the best team in June. We want to be the team that’s holding up the trophy, and I think when we do that, nobody will remember the game that we lost on Christmas.”

HOUSTON — Luka Doncic didn’t even crack a smile when Dallas Mavericks Jerseys For Sale fans showered him with “MVP!” chants as he exited the Toyota Center court after a convincing road win over a Western Conference contender.

Doncic lightly clapped his hands above his head and gave the fans two thumbs up to show his appreciation before heading into the tunnel, but he kept an even keel, a theme for the Mavericks after they extended their winning streak to five games with a 137-123 victory over the Houston Rockets Jerseys For Sale on Sunday afternoon.

How Rick Carlisle learned to stop worrying and love Luka Doncic

Doncic posts 35-point triple-double in 25 minutes
Doncic declared before the season that the Mavs needed to make the playoffs, and that was the primary goal set for a franchise that is determined to end a three-year playoff drought. Dallas looks like a potential surprise contender, as the Mavs are tied for third in the West with an 11-5 record and tied with the Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys For Sale for the NBA Jerseys For Sale ‘s best net rating, outscoring opponents by 8.9 points per 100 possessions.

But the Mavs and their 20-year-old superstar had no interest in discussing grander possibilities after another dominant performance.

“For me, it’s making the playoffs still,” said Doncic, who had 41 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists in the win, more than holding his own in a duel with perennial MVP candidate James Harden Jersey For Sale (32 points, 9 rebounds, 11 assists). “It’s a long season. It’s only been one month. We didn’t make the playoffs yet, so we’ve just got to keep going right now.”

The Mavs arrived in Houston fresh off a 4-0 homestand, the franchise’s first sweep of a homestand of that length since their title season in 2010-11. Dallas became the fourth team in NBA history to win consecutive games by more than 40 points by routing recent championship teams that are in rebuilding seasons, blowing out the Golden State Warriors Jerseys For Sale by 48 on Wednesday and the Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys For Sale by 42 on Friday.

The quick road trip to face the Rockets represented a test with much tougher competition. The Mavs responded by never allowing Houston to take a lead, opening the game with a 13-2 run, leading by as many as 22 points and slamming the door with a 23-9 run after Houston pulled to within five with 7 minutes, 39 seconds left.

“We’re not going to get overexcited,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We know we’re capable. … The team is growing. This is a big win, there’s no question about that. This is a big-time place to play, and you’re playing against great players, and so our guys deserve credit. But, look, this is a process, and it’s day by day, week by week.”

The Phenomenon of Luka Doncic Jersey For Sale
ESPN’s Tim MacMahon, draft analyst Jonathan Givony and ex-Mavericks player development director Mike Procopio join The Woj Pod to discuss the emergence of Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic, including his rapid ascent into an MVP candidate, his draft evaluation as a European prodigy (4:39), Dirk Nowitzki’s influence (24:23), the 2018 NBA draft night drama surrounding Doncic (13:02) and much more. Listen now!

Doncic delivered another statistical line that had historical significance. He joined LeBron James Jersey For Sale as the lone players in NBA history to have multiple outings with at least 40 points and 10 assists before their 21st birthday, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Doncic had a 42-point triple-double in Monday’s win over the Spurs, beginning a streak of four straight games with at least 30 points and 10 assists that he extended against the Rockets. The only players in NBA history with longer such streaks: Oscar Robertson Jersey For Sale (twice), Nate Archibald Jersey For Sale, Michael Jordan Jersey For Sale and Russell Westbrook Jersey For Sale.

“Luka runs the show,” Mavs power forward Kristaps Porzingis Jersey For Sale said. “We all depend on him most of the game, and he’s playing incredible right now. He’s getting guys open looks. … He’s playing incredible right now. I’m super happy for him.”

By no means, however, has Doncic been a one-man band during Dallas’ five-game run. Carlisle referred to Porzingis’ recent performances as “phenomenal” after Porzingis posted his fourth double-double in the past five games with 23 points and 13 rebounds against the Rockets. Carlisle has been particularly proud of the defensive work done by the 7-foot-3 Porzingis, who had a game-best plus-minus of plus-32.

Porzingis set the tone right after the opening tip against the Rockets, getting a steal, a deflection that led to another steal and a blocked shot in the first 96 seconds.

“He’s coming and coming, playing better and better,” Doncic said of Porzingis, who struggled early in the season as he was coming off a 20-month layoff because of a knee injury.

Shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. Jersey For Sale, whose contract was considered the tax the Mavs took to acquire Porzingis in last season’s trade with the New York Knicks Jerseys For Sale, has also excelled recently. Hardaway made his first three starts of the season in the past three games, averaging 22.3 points on 66.7% shooting from the field.

The Mavs have scored at least 135 points in all three games, a first in franchise history. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the last team to accomplish that feat was the Phoenix Suns Jerseys For Sale in February 2009.

But Porzingis, like Doncic and Carlisle, stressed the importance of not getting caught up in the Mavs’ success.

“We don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves,” Porzingis said. “The season is long. We believe in ourselves. We have high confidence, and we want to keep it going. At the same time, we’ve got to keep doing the things we’ve been doing to get to this point and go day by day and get better.

“It’s time together, it’s chemistry, making sure that everybody is on the same page. A lot of stuff happens that you guys never find out about inside the locker room between players and stuff like that. We’ve got to make sure all that stuff is right. Also, the relationship between coaches and players, that’s got to be there. I’ve seen when it goes south. Right now, we’re in a great place, and we want to keep it going.”
