Stephen A. Smith Suggests Major NBA Trade For The Lakers

Stephen A. Smith Suggests Major NBA Trade For The Lakers

"It's very very hard to make a game out of it when you start like that and expend so much energy trying to get back into it".

Trivia time: The meeting between Raptors coach Nick Nurse and Jazz coach Quin Snyder made National Basketball Association history: it was the first regular-season meeting of two one-time G-League coach of the year award winners.

Toronto wasn't necessarily expected to dominate in the second game of a back-to-back, but performances from Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Pascal Siakam once again lifted a squad missing Kawhi Leonard.

Toronto Raptors star small forward Kawhi Leonard won't play Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers due to left foot soreness.

There were two keys to this blowout.

It's the fourth game in 11 that he has missed.

The Raptors raced out to that big first quarter exploiting two things: Brandon Ingram could not keep up with Danny Green as he came off multiple picks, and the Raptors would run a pick-and-pop with JaVale McGee's man setting the pick because he could/would not come out and contest.

Oil drops on Iran sanction exemptions, economic concerns
The US on Monday imposed "the toughest ever" sanctions on a defiant Iran aimed at altering the Iranian regime's "behaviour". So far this year, the United States has sent 873,420 tonnes of soybeans to Iran, according to Bloomberg.

Amazon offers free shipping for everyone through the holidays
Last month, Target announced that from November 1 to December 22, shipping would be free with no minimum spend required. It may be because Amazon felt the need to compete with big box stores who are also offered free shipping promotions.

Schmeichel proud to be part of the Leicester 'family'
An emotional minute's silence was held prior to Leicester's game with Cardiff, which Schmeichel admits was hard to get through. The 22-year-old was booked after taking off his shirt in celebration , revealing the message "For Kun Vichai".

Norm had just checked into the game moments ago and got hurt in his first action.

The decision deprived Lakers fans of their only chance this season to see Leonard, who could be an unrestricted free agent coveted by their team next summer. Los Angeles cut the margin to 117-107 in the fourth but they failed to get any closer with the game out of hand and James sitting on the bench in the final quarter.

Unless those things start to show up, the playoffs will not be there for the Lakers, either.

Leonard, twice the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year, left Friday night's game with a jammed foot, finishing with 19 points, six rebounds and five assists in 30 minutes.

"A couple guys would jump over him, and he'd lay it in".

"For me and what I've experienced in this league, I've tried to stay even-keeled", James said.
