LeBron James has been the centerpiece of the National Basketball Association playoffs for the last dozen years, but that streak seems unlikely to continue in his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers after the four-time MVP's fourth-quarter collapse in Sunday's loss to the league's worst team, the New York Knicks.

A loss to the Knicks would have been bad enough for LeBron James, but the way it unfolded Sunday made for a particularly rough day at the office.

Turnovers and harassing defense would become the story of the third quarter, as the Lakers combination of defense and fast-break points saw them pull ahead to a 96-94 lead going into the 4th quarter, off the back of 20 turnovers by the Knicks.

Just when you thought the Lakers season couldn't get any worse, this happens. "We have a couple more wins than them, but both teams right now are on the outside looking in, so it's not much of a difference". I was just trying to play as hard as I can and try to stop him'.

He was rushed to the hospital but died "due to indiscriminate firing", the ministry added. Nine Pakistanis were among 49 martyred in Christchurch mosque attack on Friday.

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player shot 11-for-26 from the field and overcame an 0-for-6 performance from the 3-point line by making 11-of-13 attempts from the free-throw line during his 35 minutes of play. "When you're the face of the National Basketball Association, I think you should be more a part of your team", Frazier said on MSG Network.

Cameras showed James sitting all the way at the end of the bench during first-half play, far from some teammates.

They finished 16 of 22 in the period to lead 41-30, but the Lakers outscored them 36-22 in the second to bring a 66-63 edge into halftime. So perhaps it was in the Lakers' favor to lose this game after all.

The most aesthetically pleasing play of the game today was a Kuzma no-look pass to JaVale McGee, with the big-man finishing it at the rim. A blood clot caused shoulder pain for Ingram, and Walton said he hadn't been comfortable talking about Ingram's health while he and the team were gathering information on treatment options.
