NBA Wrap: Randle leads Lakers to Cavs win

Cavaliers star LeBron James produced 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but his Cavaliers lost for the fourth time in six games.

Julius Randle (30) of the Los Angeles Lakers handles the ball against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 11, 2018 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California. "It's no surprise, I've done that before."Thomas averaged 14.7 points and shot a career-low.361 from the field in 15 games with the Cavs".

Julius Randle had a career-high 36 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, and the Lakers put on a show in front of James with a 127-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night.

James was in action for Cleveland Cavaliers this weekend in their clash with Los Angeles Lakers. The signs read: "L.A.Bron", signaling the desire among many for the Lakers to sign James following this season.

Despite Walton's ribbing, the former Lakers were welcomed warmly in their return on Sunday - both by their former teammates and by fans, who cheered both players.

Paul also represents Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, which gives Johnson leeway to talk to the agent (and might not be purely coincidental).

But the jury is still out on whether the Cavs are a really good team. The Cavs were without Rodney Hood (back), Tristan Thompson (right ankle) and Kevin Love (left hand).

And not the one they thought they dealt to the Lakers last month.

The Lakers had held a 72-63 lead with less than three minutes gone in the second half, which resulted in a Cavaliers response that saw them run off nine unanswered points to tie the game.

Nikola Jokic's triple-double of 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists helped the Denver Nuggets beat the Sacramento Kings 130-104, while the Indiana Pacers edged the Boston Celtics 99-97 and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Brooklyn Nets 120-97. Larry Nance Jr. ended his night with 16 points and eight rebounds, while Jose Calderon was the only other Cavs player to reach double figures in scoring with 10 points. Cleveland shot 46.6 percent from the floor.
