LeBron James inspires the Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers managed to end their five game losing streak in the National Basketball Association, beating opponents Chicago Bulls 123-107 in an away game late Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Lakers' season may be headed to an unfortunate end but it definitely hasn't stopped LeBron James from putting on a show.

Kyle Kuzma marked his return from injury by adding 21 points while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope contributed 24 points off the bench for the Lakers.

Lopez scored 20 points and had seven rebounds, while Otto Porter Jr finished with 19 for the Bulls. Chicago's leading scorer, Zach LaVine (23.8 PPG), might not be able to play either as he was forced to sit Sunday against the Pistons due to a flare up of right knee patellar tendonitis.

The Bulls outscored the Lakers 11-1 after he checked out in the first quarter to lead 34-16 at the end of the period. We go into Toronto our next game.

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

The team is now 6.5 games out of a playoff spot, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a person or metric giving them better than a two percent chance to make the playoffs. He is the first New Orleans player to have a triple-double in consecutive games since Chris Paul did it in 2008.

PHILADELPHIA - Ben Simmons scored 26 points, Joel Embiid had 19 rebounds and made some big plays down the stretch, and Philadelphia held off Cleveland. Embiid also blocked four shots.

The Portland Trail Blazers ended the Los Angeles Clippers' five-game winning streak with a 125-104 victory, with CJ McCollum scoring 35 points and Jusuf Nurkic and Damian Lillard netting 20 each. Cedi Osman added 18 and put the Cavs ahead 97-96 with under 3 minutes to go as boos rained down in Philly.

NEW ORLEANS - Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points and Milwaukee used a 45-point third quarter to pull away from New Orleans.

The Pacers rebounded from a pair of nationally televised double-digit defeats at Milwaukee and Philadelphia by beating the Knicks for the 13th time in their last 14 meetings in Indianapolis and completing their third season sweep of NY in the past five seasons.
