Jordan Clarkson Pays Tribute to LeBron James for Passing Wilt Chamberlain

Jordan Clarkson Pays Tribute to LeBron James for Passing Wilt Chamberlain

Rondo broke his hand during the Lakers' 126-117 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night, head coach Luke Walton said postgame.

According to TickPick, a secondary-market seller, prices to see Sunday's 6 p.m. game between the Lakers and Heat are 158 percent more expensive than the Heat's season average, with a current average listing price, according to the outlet, of $560.

Five of the top six scorers in National Basketball Association history suited up for the Lakers, and James reached his latest milestone during a dominant performance that had chants of "M-V-P!" raining down from the Staples Center crowd.

"I think a big thing with New Orleans would be, if Kawhi leaves Toronto that could send other teams a message, "look, it worked for Paul George in Oklahoma City but in most cases this is not worth the gamble". James punctuated one of the most assertive stretches of his season with two long 3-pointers in the final 25 seconds, finishing the half with 16 points. The veteran guard will be out at least a few weeks with the injury.

Rondo, who was apparently injured stealing the ball in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win over Portland, could have surgery as early as Friday. While he didn't score, he had three assists, two rebounds and two steals.

"He was talking a lot", Walton said of what Rondo did in practice Thursday.

Jimmy Butler trade: Timberwolves send G to Philadelpia 76ers
Jimmy Butler will play against the Timberwolves - as a Sixer - for the first time when the Sixers host the Wolves on January 15. After one season in Minnesota, Butler wanted out after the team made it clear it would not offer him a max contract extension.

"I mean, he's huge", James said talking about Chandler's effect on the team.

"When I'm able to do what I love to do, do it at this level, even being mentioned with the greats who have played this game - it just always brings me back to my home town of Akron", James told ESPN after the game.

Despite squandering a 15-point lead in the third quarter, Memphis used a 15-2 run in the fourth to post a 116-113 victory.

JaVale McGee supported James with 20 points, while fellow starters Brandon Ingram (17) and Lonzo Ball (11) also weighed in with double-digit tallies.

The 26-year-old Clarkson only had the opportunity to play with James for four months after he was dealt from the Lakers to the Cavaliers in February.

Instead, the impact will be determined by whether Chandler, 7-foot-3 wingspan and all, can alter enough shots at the rim to make life hard for opposing offences.
