While everyone in the sports world was seemingly caught up in some big National Football League news, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were busy... having fun in Chicago? It is unlikely to be enough to extend the Lakers' season, but James believes they will be playoff contenders in the future.
James didn't stop there, hitting a 3-pointer over 7-footer Robin Lopez and capping it off when Josh Hart passed the ball off the backboard to James, who finished with a reverse dunk to put the Lakers up 115-101 with 5 minutes remaining.
James was asked if he had any special thoughts returning to the United Center. "That's what I live", James said. I live playing every game like it's my last, no matter what's going on.
Another rookie, forward Johnathan Williams had a standout game with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Nevertheless, the Lakers should have an easier time generating points against the Bulls with Kuzma in the lineup. Wayne Selden Jr. came off the bench to lead the Bulls with 18 points, while Markkanen and Otto Porter Jr. each recorded 17. While that may be the case, LeBron is still going to put on a show when he's on the court.

During a 123-107 win over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, James took to the rim and posted a few dunks that would have looked out of place in the Slam Dunk Contest only because he didn't require multiple tries. Everybody was moving the ball, passing it.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points to lead six Milwaukee scorers in double figures in a win at New Orleans. Once again, we will get to see Andre Ingram compete in the National Basketball Association as he received a call-up to face the Chicago Bulls on March 12 from the LA G-League affiliate South Bay Lakers. After a bit of a slow start, Kuzma picked it up in the second half and finished with 21 points, five rebounds and four assists.
The fun began in the second quarter when James waited out his defender to spin and slam it home.
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. The Lakers took a 66-64 lead when James found Kuzma for a layup with 8:49 in the third quarter.
