Los Angeles Lakers

Is LeBron James the greatest of all time? His Los Angeles Lakers colleagues undoubtedly agree.

Heat and Lakers have a chance to go up 3-1 in the first round.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat have taken identical paths to 2-1 leads in their respective first-round series, and both will look to break that win-one-lose-one trend on Monday night.

The seventh-seeded Lakers face the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 of their Western Area series, while the eighth-seeded Heat, who lost Victor Oladipo for the season in Saturday’s triumph, face the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference series.

You must honour championship DNA. They’ve got it.” On the Bucks, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra stated on Sunday. “They have guys who have been through the battles and the wars.” They’re not going to get seasick because they’re down 2-1. They’ll simply go do what they have to do to try to get tomorrow, and that’s what we’ll do as well. It’s a game of competition. You have to put yourself out there and do what we need to accomplish.”

The Bucks are waiting to see if Giannis Antetokounmpo can play Monday after bruising his lower back in the first half of Game 1 and missing Games 2 and 3. The Bucks did not practise on Sunday, but Antetokounmpo did some on-court work to see what he could accomplish in Game 4.
