New York Times writer Marc Stein reported, "The prevailing assumption in league coaching circles remains that Walton will nearly certainly be dismissed after the season".

James poured in his customary scoring + rebounds + dimes line against the Clippers on Monday night, but that wasn't enough in yet another loss, putting the Lakers 5.5 games out of the eighth and final spot in the West.

The Lakers are now in 10th place in the Western Conference, 6 wins behind the San Antonio Spurs with only 18 games remaining, leaving them with little prospect of squeezing into the playoffs. While it should have been a joyous occasion on a joyful day, it turned out to be the beginning of the end for the Lakers season.

While there are some mitigating circumstances for Walton-chief among them the injuries that have beset his team regularly in the last few months-it is hard to deny he has underachieved.

It's time for a Good Will Hunting moment for LeBron James: It's not your fault the Los Angeles Lakers are on their way to missing the postseason. Overall, the Lakers have gone 3-9 since LeBron James returned to the lineup on January 31 (Feb. 1, PHL time).

The Celtics rallied behind their reserves, with Jaylen Brown posting 15 points and six rebounds off the bench to lead the charge. In Detroit, Blake Griffin scored 14 of his 27 points in the first quarter and the Pistons outlasted Toronto .

According to FS1's Colin Cowherd, the Lakers will open the 2019-20 season with a new head coach.

According to Cowherd, Lue is the odds-on favorite to coach LeBron once again - this time in Los Angeles.

Cowherd suggested Ty Lue will be the Lakers' coach next season. Los Angeles looked willing to trade nearly half of its roster before the trade deadline in February to land the five-time All-Star, after he publicly requested to leave the Pelicans.

Luke Walton has put up a 91-136 record over the course of his tenure in Los Angeles.
