The Indiana Pacers relieved Nate McMillan of his coaching duties on Wednesday, two days after the team was swept out of the first round of the playoffs for a second straight year.  

The stunning move also comes just two weeks after the Pacers extended McMillan's contract by one year through the 2021-22 season. 

McMillan spent four seasons in Indiana and led the Pacers to the playoffs in each of those campaigns, but the team failed to win a postseason series over that period. Indiana was 3-16 in playoff games during his tenure and was swept in three series, including this year's match-up with the Miami Heat.

"This was a very hard decision for us to make; but we feel it's in the best interest of the organization to move in a different direction," Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard said in a statement.

McMillan compiled a 183-136 regular-season record with the Pacers while often saddled with injuries or defections to top players. He guided Indiana to 48 wins - six more than the previous season - in 2017-18 after the organisation traded All-Star Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Pacers matched that win total the following year despite leading scorer Victor Oladipo missing over half the season with a ruptured quadriceps tendon. 

With Oladipo limited to only 19 games in 2019-20 while recovering from that injury, the Pacers finished 45-28 and were the Eastern Conference's number four playoff seed.  

McMillan has gone 661-588 in 16 overall seasons as an NBA head coach with the Seattle SuperSonics (2000-05), Portland Trail Blazers (2005-12) and Indiana.

The 56-year-old also worked alongside Pritchard, the former Trail Blazers' general manager, during his time with Portland.  

"Nate and I have been through the good times and the bad times; and it was an honour to work with him for those 11 years (in Indiana and Portland)," Pritchard stated.  

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers delivered an emotional response to a question about the shooting of Jacob Blake, which has led to further protests against racial injustice in the United States.

Blake was shot several times by a police officer as he got into a car in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday. Footage of the incident was shared on social media and Blake's family says he has been left paralysed from the waist down.

Since the NBA restarted in its Orlando bubble last month, players have taken a knee during the national anthem in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and were given the option to place a social justice message on the back of their jerseys.

Those moves were made in response to the killing of George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis in May after a police officer knelt on his neck for seven minutes and 46 seconds.

Rivers said prior to the Clippers' 154-111 victory over Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday he would answer questions on the shooting of Blake after the Game 5 encounter.

When he addressed the media about the incident, Rivers delivered a powerful statement as his eyes welled up and his voice cracked with emotion.

"It's just so sad. What stands out to me is, just watching the Republican Convention and they're spewing this fear," he said as he took off his face mask.

"All you hear is Donald Trump and all of them talking about fear. We're the ones getting killed. We're the ones getting shot. We're the ones that are denied to live in certain communities. We've been hung. We've been shot. And all you do is keep hearing about fear.

"It's amazing why we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back. It's just really so sad. Like, I should just be a coach. I'm so often reminded of my colour. It's just really sad. We've got to do better. But we got to demand better.

"It's funny. We protest and they send riot guards. They send people in riot outfits. They go up to Michigan with guns and they're spitting on cops and nothing happens.

"The training has to change in the police force. The unions have to be taken down in the police force. My dad was a cop. I believe in good cops. We're not trying to defund the police and take all their money away. We're trying to get them to protect us, just like they protect everybody else.

"I didn't want to talk about it before the game because it's so hard to just keep watching that. If you watch that video, you don't need to be black to be outraged. You need to be American and outraged.

"How dare the Republicans talk about fear. We're the ones that need to be scared. We're the ones having to talk to every black child. What white father has to give his son a talk about being careful if you get pulled over? It's just ridiculous.

"And it just keeps going. There's no charges. Breonna Taylor [who was shot when police entered her flat in March], no charges, nothing. All we're asking is you live up to the constituion - that's all we're asking - for everybody, for everyone."

Following the Utah Jazz's 117-107 loss to Denver Nuggets in Game 5 on Tuesday, Jazz star Donovan Mitchell branded the shooting of Blake "inexcusable" and "disgusting".

"A lot of times where we say we don't feel safe, it doesn't matter how much money, it doesn't matter who you are," Mitchell said.

"The common excuse is, 'He shouldn't have walked away; he shouldn't have not listened to the cops.' He doesn't deserve to be shot in the back, shot seven times. That's inexcusable.

"The point of us coming down here [to Orlando] was to create change, and I feel that we're doing a good job of that, but not good enough. It's obviously not going to happen overnight, but it's disgusting.

"I really don't know how else to describe it as an African American male. When does it stop? When do we feel comfortable? When do we feel safe?

"I just want this s*** to stop, to be completely honest with you."

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been named NBA Defensive Player of the Year for the first time.

Antetokounmpo claimed the award by a landslide, with 75 of the 100 sportswriters and broadcasters who voted selecting the Greek giant.

The 25-year-old is only the fifth player to land both the NBA MVP and the NBA Defensive Player of the Year gongs in his career.

Antetokounmpo, the 2018-19 MVP, was informed he had won the award by Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer after he scored 31 points in a 121-106 Game 4 playoff win over the Orlando Magic on Monday.

He said: "Usually when coach wants to talk to us after a game, somebody messed up or somebody did something. So, in my head, I'm like, 'okay.' I'm looking around like, 'Who did something?' Because I know I didn't do nothing."

Antetokounmpo added: "At the end of the day, when you go out there and compete and when you have guys behind you and next to you that compete as hard, awards like this can come.

"What I get from this is that you have to win. You have to do whatever it takes every day to go out there and put yourself in a position, put your team in a position to win, and good things are going to happen, and everything is going to take care of itself."

Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson and Kevin Garnett are the other four to have won the NBA MVP and the NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards.

The Bucks lead the Magic 3-1 in the first round of the playoffs and can seal their place in the Eastern Conference semi-finals with a victory on Wednesday.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George starred as the Los Angeles Clippers routed the Dallas Mavericks 154-111 in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round matchup.

The Portland Trail Blazers have been dealt a blow after star guard Damian Lillard was ruled out of the Game 5 showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA playoffs.

Lillard will miss Wednesday's crucial clash in the Western Conference first round due to a right knee sprain, the Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday.

The in-form Lillard suffered the injury in the third quarter of Monday's 135-115 loss to the Lakers in Game 4, as the eighth-seeded Trail Blazers fell 3-1 behind in the best-of-seven series.

LeBron's Lakers – the top seeds – can seal their spot in the second round at Walt Disney World Resort midweek.

Lillard averaged 30.0 points, 8.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game in the regular season, while he was averaging 24.3 points, 4.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds in the playoffs.

The Philadelphia 76ers are not looking to trade Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid following their elimination from the NBA playoffs, general manager Elton Brand said.

Head coach Brett Brown was sacked after the 76ers were swept 4-0 by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the postseason and the team is reportedly looking at further changes to the front office.

However, Brand has no plan to move on from either of the All-Star duo of Simmons and Embiid.

"I'm not looking to trade Ben or Joel, I'm looking to complement them better," said Brand. "They are 24 and 26 years old respectively, you try to make that fit as long as you can.

"They want to be here, they want to be with our organisation, and I see them here for a long, long time."

Simmons sat out the playoffs after suffering a subluxation in the left knee at the NBA bubble in Orlando and Embiid was unable to inspire a deep run that could have seen his team-mate return to the court.

Both players are under contract for at least the next three seasons and Brand plans to discuss with them how they feel the team should look going forward.

Brand acknowledged that 'The Process', the nickname given to the period in which Philadelphia rebuilt by tanking and acquiring draft capital, could now be deemed a failure.

"It didn't produce the results we expected. It's a results-based business and we're trying to right those wrongs and make sure we do better," he said.

"Currently, yes, we failed. But are we going to do everything to position ourselves to win? Yes."

A key factor in the Sixers' path forward will be the appointment of a new head coach, so Brand will not make a hasty decision.

He said: "We're not going to be in a rush because this is a pivotal point for our organisation. We're at a crossroads right now, so this hire is extremely important. There's not going to be a rush.

"All options are open. No one is in the lead, but I look forward to these interviews because there are going to be some talented people out there."

A lack of perimeter shooting has been a persistent issue for the 76ers, while Al Horford failed to gel with Embiid after arriving on a four-year, $109million contract.

Asked if Horford can fit into the line-up, Brand said: "That's for the next coach to make that decision and determination on how the line-ups work.

"Al Horford can fit on an NBA-calibre championship team. Whatever that role is, we're going to have to figure it out. But he can fit."

Kyle Lowry has been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle, the Toronto Raptors have confirmed.

The six-time All-Star played just nine minutes of the defending champions' 150-122 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, a win that sealed the franchise's first ever series sweep.

Toronto advanced to an Eastern Conference semi-final series against the Boston Celtics and Game 1 tips off on Thursday.

However, there will be concerns about whether point guard Lowry can play a part.

"The Toronto Raptors announced that guard Kyle Lowry has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain," a statement from the team read.

"Lowry underwent an MRI on the NBA Campus in Orlando after the injury, which occurred in the first quarter of Sunday evening's game.

"His condition will be updated as appropriate."

Lowry has averaged 19.4 points, 7.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds in 58 games with the Raptors this season.

LeBron James felt "blessed" to star on Mamba Day as the Los Angeles Lakers took a grip on their Western Conference first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

As he remembered Kobe Bryant, James also expressed renewed concern about the safety of African-American citizens in the United States following the shooting by police of Jacob Blake.

That incident on Sunday happened in Kenosha, a city close to Milwaukee, and James said his "prayers go to that family".

Wisconsin state investigators are looking into that incident to determine whether action should be taken against the officers involved.

On the court, James was imperious in grabbing a double-double of 30 points and 10 assists for the Lakers in their 135-115 win that established a 3-1 series lead.

He told NBA on TNT: "It's a wide range of emotions. I am extremely proud of my team, the way we played tonight."

Monday was designated Mamba Day in remembrance of Lakers great Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in January - with the 8/24 date chosen to mark his uniform numbers.

"[I am] extremely blessed and honoured to be able to play on 8/24 and continue to remember Kobe Bryant and Gigi Bryant and all the fallen people that were a part of that tragic incident," James said.

"And at the same time having the emotions with what happened outside of Milwaukee with Jacob Blake. It's what we’ve been talking about and it's what we're going to continue to talk about.

"Having two boys of my own and me being African-American in America, and to see what continues to happen with the police brutality towards my kind, continue to see what goes on with the injustice - it's very troubling.

"We play a beautiful game which brings so many great families together and people should be able to rejoice and enjoy it.

"But at the same never lose track of what’s really happening in our world, especially here in America.

"My prayers go to that family and hopefully we can have some change."

Presidential elections are three months away in the US and James said he believes the time for change "starts in November".

"We have an opportunity to make change but it still doesn't stop there," he said, "even with whoever comes next."

Anthony Davis has eased fears about the severity of the back injury that forced him out of the Los Angeles Lakers' Game 4 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Lakers cruised to a 135-115 victory to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round series on Monday, but they were without Davis for most of the second half due to back spasms.

The seven-time All-Star headed to the locker room early in the third quarter - when the Lakers had a huge 91-53 lead - and later watched the rest of the game while standing on the sidelines with an electric stimulation device wrapped around his back.

Davis, who had 18 points in his 18 minutes on the court, does not think it is a major issue, though, as Los Angeles look to seal the series win in Game 5 on Wednesday.

"Back is doing fine. I'll be fine," he told reporters after the game.

LeBron James led the Lakers with 30 points and 10 assists on an emotional night for the franchise, who were remembering the great Kobe Bryant on August 24.

Bryant, who wore the jersey numbers 8 and 24 during a decorated career with the Lakers, was killed in a helicopter crash in January, along with his daughter and seven other people.

James arrived at the game wearing a Bryant Lakers jersey and Davis revealed he has seen a different side to the four-time MVP since the postseason began.

"Obviously we've kicked it up a notch," Davis added.

"His level of focus is definitely increased and the entire team's level of focus has increased. He's very detailed about everything. He's in there with coaches for film sessions, he's talking to me during film sessions.

"He wants to win and I want to win and we know that it's going to take both of us to do it, and the entire team, so we're just continuing to find ways to get better, even after wins like this.

"There's always something we can be better at for Game 5. I'm pretty sure that he's going to have a list of things for me tomorrow and the entire team."

The Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks cruised into 3-1 series leads in the NBA playoffs on Monday.

The Lakers made it three straight wins over the Portland Trail Blazers with a 135-115 victory, taking a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.

LeBron James produced a huge performance with a double-double of 30 points and 10 assists for the Lakers.

Anthony Davis posted 18 points before exiting due to back spasms, while Kyle Kuzma contributed 18 off the bench.

While Jusuf Nurkic had a double-double of 20 points and 13 rebounds, the Trail Blazers lost star Damian Lillard (11 points) to a knee injury.

The Bucks grabbed a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series against the Orlando Magic thanks to a 121-106 win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo unsurprisingly led Milwaukee with a double-double of 31 points and 15 rebounds, plus eight assists.

Khris Middleton struggled from the field, going seven-of-19, but still finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

 

Dynamic Dragic sees Miami through, Thunder draw level

Goran Dragic had a team-high 23 points as the Miami Heat completed a 4-0 series sweep of the Indiana Pacers courtesy of a 99-87 win.

Miami were also led by Bam Adebayo, who finished with 14 points, 19 rebounds and six assists.

The Western Conference first-round series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets is locked at 2-2. Dennis Schroder had 30 points off the bench as the Thunder won Game 4 117-114.

Thunder forward Shai Gilgeous-Alexander managed a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds.

The Rockets were beaten despite a fine performance by James Harden, who had 32 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds.

 

Bad Brogdon

Indiana are out of the playoffs and Malcolm Brogdon struggled for the Pacers, going five-of-16 from the field in Game 4. The guard finished with 13 points in 40 minutes.

 

LeBron from range

James hit a three-pointer from just over half-court in the Lakers' win.

Mavericks face Clippers

Luka Doncic inspired the Dallas Mavericks to draw level in their series with the Los Angeles Clippers. The crucial Game 5 of the Western Conference first-round series is on Tuesday.

The Philadelphia 76ers have fired coach Brett Brown following their NBA playoffs sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics.

The Celtics secured an emphatic first-round triumph in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 110-106 victory in Orlando last week.

Brown, appointed in 2013, has taken the 76ers to three consecutive postseason appearances, including two Conference semi-finals, but his position had been coming under growing scrutiny.

76ers guard Josh Richardson suggested there needed to be "more accountability" after the Celtics disappointment, although he stressed Brown was "a good guy".

On Monday, general manager Elton Brand confirmed Brown had been relieved of his role with immediate effect and that the search for a replacement had begun.

"I have a tremendous level of respect for Brett both personally and professionally and appreciate all he's done for the 76ers organisation and the City of Philadelphia," Brand said.

"He did many positive things during his time here, developing young talent and helping position our team for three straight postseason appearances. Unfortunately, we fell well short of our goals this year and I believe it is best to go in a new direction. This will be an important offseason for us as we look to get back on track towards our goal of competing for an NBA championship."

76ers managing partner Josh Harris said: "I want to thank Brett for not only what he did as our head coach, but for the impactful community work he and his family did across the Greater Philadelphia Area over the last seven years.

"He is a high-character coach and leader and we're fortunate to have had him here. This is a difficult decision, but one we believe is necessary. I wish Brett and his family well."

The Toronto Raptors will be hoping Kyle Lowry is fit to feature against the Boston Celtics after easing through to the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Toronto completed the first series sweep in franchise history on Sunday, though a fourth straight victory over the Brooklyn Nets may have come at a heavy price.

Lowry played just nine minutes of the 150-122 triumph that sealed the Raptors' progress, with head coach Nick Nurse revealing in his post-game media call that the point guard suffered an injury to the arch of his left foot.

The six-time NBA All-Star will wait for results from an MRI scan to discover the damage, leaving the defending champions unsure if they will have one of their key players available to face the Celtics.

However, Nurse - who described Lowry as a "big engine" for the team - hopes others can step up to fill the void, whether individually or collectively as a group, if the 34-year-old is sidelined.

"I won't be very comfortable without Kyle out there - he's a big engine for us," Nurse told the media.

"But I would say that we play a system or a style where lots of guys are involved.

"We're going to miss all of those great things that Kyle does if he's not playing, but someone else will take shots, play defense, play tough, do all the things he does and make up for it. Or, we do it by committee, which is probably the better way."

He added: "You've got to go out there with who is healthy and available, and you've got to think there is a good chance you can figure out a way to win. That's what we will do, either way."

Despite being without Lowry, Toronto coasted past the Nets. Norm Powell had 29 points and Serge Ibaka contributed 27 as the bench came up big in Game 4, contributing 100 points to the cause.

Still, they will hope to have one of their key players on the floor when they open the series against the Celtics, who impressed Nurse with the way they swept past the Philadelphia 76ers, on Thursday.

"I think they're really good," he replied when asked about Toronto's next opponents. 

"They are super-talented, really deep and very well coached. I think they're playing great at the moment.

"They put away a very talented Philadelphia team with ease, with ease. There was never a doubt in that series where it was going, bar maybe a little bit in one game. 

"I'm hoping it's a great series. We're going to need to play good to beat him."

Donovan Mitchell wants a deep playoff run with the Utah Jazz after dropping 51 points to join Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson in an elite NBA club. 

Mitchell outshone Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray - who scored 50 points - to lead the Jazz to a 129-127 victory in Game 4 as Utah moved 3-1 up in the first round. 

It was the second time Mitchell had gone beyond 50 points in the matchup, a feat only former MVPs and Hall of Famers Jordan and Iverson have previously managed in a single playoff series in the league's entire history. 

"Honestly, it's the first round," Mitchell told reporters of emulating Jordan and Iverson. 

"The two guys you named have made it to the Finals. Michael Jordan is obviously the greatest basketball player of all time. 

"I got a lot of work to do to catch up to those guys. I am honoured to be in that category, but we are doing all this in the first round." 

The talented youngster has certainly bounced back from his performance in the postseason last year, when he missed 18 of his 22 shots as the Jazz crashed to a decisive Game 5 loss against the Houston Rockets in the first round.

"It's no secret that last year's playoffs wasn't my best," Mitchell added. "And I took that personally, and I am going to trust my work and keep moving forward.

"I love hearing negative things about me. 

"The knock on me has been, 'Inefficient, not a team player', whatever it is.

"I pride myself on being a team player, on being a playmaker. I've said it a thousand times, and I am going to continue to do that.

"Fifty [points] is what it is, but I am more happy that I got seven assists."

Mitchell scored 16 of the Jazz's final 20 points and urged his team to punch their ticket to the next round in Game 5.

"The job's not finished," he added.

"As good as this one feels, we won by two, and we're on to Game 5."

Paul George conceded he is "having a hard time" in the Los Angeles Clippers' first-round series against the Dallas Mavericks.

Six-time All-Star George went 3-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-7 from three-point range, providing just nine points as the Clippers lost 135-133 in overtime to a Luka Doncic-inspired Mavericks, who levelled the Western Conference series at 2-2.

George, who once referred to himself as 'Playoff P' due to his ability to deliver in the postseason, has the lowest effective field-goal percentage (34.8 per cent) of any player to have taken at least 50 shots in these playoffs.

"I've just got to stay with it. It's a marathon, man, I've got to stay with it," George told reporters.

"I thought early on I got a rhythm and then towards the third quarter there was a stretch where I just got out of rhythm and I was trying to find it.

"It was tough, it's just tough for me right now.

"It's hard to say because I'm getting the looks, the shots. The floor is open, the defenders aren't great, but I'm just having a hard time finding the ball through right now."

Former Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City Thunder star George was brought to LA last offseason, pairing with 2019 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard to give the Clippers a duo thought capable of challenging for a championship.

Yet George is not living up to that level, with Doncic - who sunk a buzzer-beating three-pointer in a 43-point display on Sunday - stealing the limelight for the Mavs instead.

"If I make shots this series could be a little different. And that's obvious, of course," George added.

"That's what it comes down to. But give them credit, they are playing well. They are shooting the ball.

"Luka is playing phenomenal. You've got to give credit where credit's due. But to be honest, in hindsight, if I shoot the ball better this series would be a lot different."

Leonard, who led the Clippers with 32 points, is confident that George's time will come in these playoffs.

Asked what advice he would give his team-mate, Leonard replied: "Just telling him to keep going, his time is coming.

"He missed some easy looks tonight but it's not his fault, everybody did.

"We were up big in the second quarter and everybody has a part in winning a basketball game."

Luka Doncic produced a stunning moment of magic to help the Dallas Mavericks outlast the Los Angeles Clippers 135-133 in overtime in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round series.

With the Mavericks trailing 133-132 and staring at a 3-1 deficit in the NBA playoffs, Doncic called game as the reigning Rookie of the Year nailed a buzzer-beating three in OT on Sunday.

A game-time decision due to a left ankle injury, Doncic put fitness issues aside to see the Mavericks dramatically level the series at 2-2 in Orlando, Florida.

Doncic became the youngest player in NBA playoffs history to post a 40-point triple-double as he finished with 43 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists.

It was the 21-year-old's second successive triple-double ahead of Game 5 against the Clippers at Walt Disney World Resort.

Kawhi Leonard's 32 points were not enough for the Clippers, while Lou Williams led the team's scorers with 36.

Defending champions the Toronto Raptors flexed their muscles in a 150-122 victory over the Brooklyn Nets as they recorded a sweep in the Eastern Conference first round.

Toronto's bench contributed 100 points, the most in any game since official starters began being tracked in 1970-71 – Norman Powell (29) and Serge Ibaka (27) leading the way.

The Raptors will face the Boston Celtics in the second round after the latter swept the Philadelphia 76ers 4-0 via a 110-106 success.

 

Mitchell makes history

Donovan Mitchell became the first player in NBA history to have two games with 50-plus points and five-plus assists in a single postseason as the Utah Jazz trumped the Denver Nuggets 129-127. Mitchell scored 18 of his 51 points in the fourth quarter to help the Jazz take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference matchup.

Nuggets star Jamal Murray also put up 50 points in the losing effort. Murray and Mitchell are the first pair of players to register 50-plus points each in a non-overtime game since Wilt Chamberlain (63) and Elgin Baylor (51) in 1962, per STATS.

It was a huge night for the Raptors. Not only did they become the first team in postseason history to score 500-plus points in a series sweep (505), Toronto also became the first playoff franchise to have 150-plus points to cap a series whitewash.

Kemba Walker's 32 points and a double-double of 28 points and 15 rebounds from Jayson Tatum fuelled the Boston Celtics. Joel Embiid was a shining light for the 76ers with 30 points and 10 rebounds.

 

Sixers' swift exit, George struggles

It was a day to forget for the 76ers. It marked the first sweep at the hands of the Celtics in 15 playoff series meetings. Philadelphia have also failed to progress beyond the second round in three consecutive seasons.

The Jazz won but Joe Ingles was scoreless. Usually a threat from beyond the arc, Ingles missed all three of his three-point attempts. The Australian was also 0 for four from the field in 35 minutes.

Paul George's struggles continued against the Mavericks. He was just three of 14 from the floor and one of seven from beyond the arc for nine points in 45 minutes.

 

Doncic's Euro step

The Slovenian star was at his brilliant best, including this move to the rim.

 

Sunday's results

Boston Celtics 110-106 Philadelphia 76ers
Dallas Mavericks 135-133 Los Angeles Clippers (OT)
Toronto Raptors 150-122 Brooklyn Nets
Utah Jazz 129-127 Denver Nuggets

 

Lakers face Trail Blazers

After his mammoth display in Game 3, LeBron James will look to help the Los Angeles Lakers take a 3-1 lead against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.
