Between Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard both ending up on the Lakers in their careers after showing Hall of Fame level talent in Orlando, the Magic have a tendency of sending their greatest big men out west to Los Angeles. Last week, the Orlando Magic brought home the bacon against the Los Angeles Lakers as well, ending at 117-130. That would put them as the youngest roster in the National Basketball Association with the likes of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma all 23 or below.
Vucevic's 31-point performance came after he scored a season-high 36 points the first time the teams met. His presence on the inside has settled the Lakers while allowing better balance on the interior as he alternates C duties with Javale McGee.
It saw them score 33 points on 50 percent shooting from the floor along with six assists on 10 made field goals in the period. The Rockets appeared to be rebounding when they won five in a row last week, but have since dropped two straight.
Off the bench, Lance Stephenson gained 13 points.
Philadelphia 76ers' Jimmy Butler (23) hits a game-winning three-point shot. They refused to settle for ill-advised shots, instead sharing the ball and finding cutters and wide open spot-up shooters on the perimeter.
Mike Conley produced a slick dribble and a scoop layup. Jaren Jackson Jr. had 16 points and seven blocks, tying a franchise record for a Grizzlies rookie. The Los Angeles Clippers at Portland Trail Blazers is tonight's marquee game.
Danilo Gallinari made the tiebreaking jumper with 47 seconds left and added 17 points for the Clippers.
Trump strongly defends use of tear gas on caravan migrants
The migrants involved in Sunday's incident were a fraction of a caravan of more than 5,000 that is now stuck in limbo in Tijuana. After the violence, Lurbin Sarmiento of Honduras walked back to the sports center with her four-year-old daughter.
"We ramped up our defence in that fourth quarter". Reggie Jackson had 19 points and 8 assists.
Deandre Ayton had 25 points for 13 rebounds for the Suns. Gordon had 11 points and Vucevic chipped in with 10 points and seven rebounds, but it was Orlando's defense that allowed them to build the advantage.
Lakers small forward LeBron James is averaging 28.6 points, but was held to 22 in the loss to Orlando and 22 again Friday night in the win against Utah.
Donovan Mitchell scored four points before he bruised his ribs in the second quarter and didn't return, depriving the Jazz of their top producer and compounding their already formidable offensive struggles.
While James's excellence ensures highlight reel plays, Gordon has the freakish athletic ability to go head to head with "The King" in terms of show-stopping dunks, rather than their all-round games.
