Lakers’ Rajon Rondo To Miss Weeks With Broken Hand

James later paid tribute to Chamberlain when asked to reflect on passing the Lakers icon.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo had a game-high 31 points to go with nine rebounds and four assists, but Marc Gasol finished with 29 points and five rebounds while going six for 12 from three-point range in the Grizzlies' 116-113 win over Milwaukee.

James scored 28 points and Rondo had 17 off the bench in the win in Portland earlier this month, snapping a 16-game losing streak against the Trail Blazers. One of the greatest scorers, rebounders to ever play this game.

Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA's all-time points leader with 38,387 points, followed by Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643) with Michael Jordan one place ahead of James at 32,292.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope echoed James' comment on Rondo's Lakers' team-mates needing to take on the burden of replacing him.

This may prove to be a blessing in disguise for Ball as he will have at least a couple of weeks to showcase his talent.

"LeBron, it was a dominant performance", Portland coach Terry Stotts said. "When he's hitting his 3s and putting his head down, he's tough to stop".

Their third date with the Blazers will mark the end of a much-needed successful homestand before they embark on a three-game trip out East.

Sitting second in the West with a 10-3 record, the Blazers have gotten off to a strong start thanks to Damian Lillard, balanced scoring up-and-down the roster, and strong play at home.

The 76ers blew an 11-point lead at the end of the third quarter as they fell to the Magic in Jimmy Butler's debut.

Lakers: The 6-foot-5 Josh Hart blocked a dunk attempt by the 7-foot Nurkic in the first quarter. He's playing an average of 24.2 minutes per game. "Most point guards aren't willing to switch onto LeBron, so there's confusion caused by two people trying to figure out how to keep him in front of them".

Rondo has played like the Lakers' best point guard at times this season. The clubs don't have their final meeting until the regular-season finale at Staples Center on April 9.
