Duke in the NBA: Lakers exercise option on Brandon Ingram

"I'll tell you, when Jeanie Buss came to me and said: 'I really want to go after [LeBron],' I said: 'Jeanie, he's not coming here until you clean up this s- here.'" Bryant told The Undefeated, when asked how involved he was in securing the James deal. In the halfcourt, he let Rajon Rondo run the shot often (he had 13 points and 11 assists and was a +11 in 32 minutes, it was a good night for him). Portland won their home opener for an NBA-record 18th straight time and extended their streak of consecutive victories over the Lakers to 16 dating back to 2013. "That gave us great energy". He's the best player in the world for a reason.

The Trail Blazers were also playing with heavy hearts on Thursday following the death of owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The 65-year-old Allen died on Monday from complications from Hodgkin's lymphoma. "That's what tonight was all about for us, not about the noise surrounding the game", Lillard said.

Throughout much of the night, and especially when things tightened up late, Portland knew what it wanted to do and executed - it was Lillard time, he finished the game with a team-high 28 points.

May 'to consider' extending UK's post-Brexit transition period
Britain says it has not asked for an extension, but May has not yet come up with proposals for unblocking the border logjam. European Union leaders dismissed May's most recent proposal as unworkable.

James signed a mega four-year contract with the Lakers after calling time on his second spell with the Cleveland Cavaliers and entering free agency. No one anticipated the play and the ball ended up bouncing harmlessly into the stands.

In his rookie season in 2016-17, Ingram only averaged 9.4 points per game along with 4.0 rebounds, and 2.1 assists, while shooting 40.2% from the floor and 29.4% from three point range.
