LeBron cleared to practice after missing next two games


If Los Angeles losses this game, the panic button needs to be pressed.

The Lakers enter Houston coming off an impressive overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder and are hoping this is the last time they will have to take the floor without LeBron James.

James has missed the last 11 games with a groin injury.

Lakers president Magic Johnson said he wouldn't fire Luke Walton during the season "unless something drastic happens, which it won't". This is a really hard place to win at.

Tobias Harris (20.8 PPG), Danilo Gallinari (19.7), Lou Williams (18.6) and Montrezl Harrell (16) are playing well in helping the Clips remain a playoff team so far this season.

Westbrook was fouled by Ball shooting a 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left.

Steven Adams delivered another productive showing, but the Oklahoma City Thunder can't shake their recent losing struggles. Westbrook, a 64 percent free throw shooter, made all three foul shots to tie the score at 122. His overall return date to the starting lineup is unknown and he will most likely miss next Monday's game against Kevin Durant the Golden State Warriors.

Following the match, National Basketball Association referee Tom Washington admitted that the foul from Ball in the dying seconds of the match was not a shooting foul.

After the game, I asked Walton why Ball appears to have taken a jump on his driving game. Westbrook hit his free throws to push the game into overtime.

I don't think he's going to play against the Warriors, folks. "But I had to wash it off". "He can do a little bit of everything", Walton said.

He also was injured in the Christmas game and three days later had surgery to fix a ligament in his right ring finger.

"You'd think maybe Brandon Ingram would step up in this spot". In November he fractured a bone in the hand and missed 17 games.

Yes, the Thunder hit a team record in 3-point shots and lost. G Raymond Felton was called for a technical foul in overtime while on the bench. "Things like backdoors, small things".
