The Cleveland Cavaliers are still struggling, but LeBron James isn't the problem.

James now has 69 career triple-doubles, placing him sixth on the all-time list behind Oscar Robertson (181), Magic Johnson (138), Jason Kidd (107), Russell Westbrook (100) and Wilt Chamberlain (78). It was his second triple-double in 10 days and No. 14 this season.

"I think that's the skill that is probably most elite of the National Basketball Association players that he has". I was able to get a charge as well, get a couple blocks, a couple steals. "I'm getting better with age, that's what it's saying".

Bronny James can light it up from three-point range.

"I'm always trying to find the open spot", Korver said. "He commands a lot of attention, sees the whole floor".

Cleveland led from the opening basket.

All of that can be pretty frustrating for a player of James' caliber. But his stint with Cleveland came to an end in August of 2008 when Jones was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team, a six-player deal involving the Bucks, the Cavaliers, and the Oklahoma City Thunder. E'Twaun Moore and Emeka Okafor scored 14 points each, and Rajon Rondo had 12 points and 17 assists. James used this opportunity against the Suns to maybe get out some frustrations. Vardon reports Love is hoping to play in a March 23 home game against the Phoenix Suns.

SUNS: The Suns made 6 of 31 threes. He delivered the ball and everybody shot a better percentage when they played with him.

Phoenix last beat Cleveland on January 13, 2015.

Isaiah Thomas had 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds against his former teammates as the Lakers roared away from the defending Eastern Conference champions in the second half with their exciting, energetic style under coach Luke Walton. Lakers fans booed Murray every time he touched the ball early in the rematch, but the 21-year-old was able to overcome it on an 18-point night. We saw that years ago here when Steve Nash played.

Unusual things happen when the Cavaliers go to Portland, and for this team, that's saying something.

SUNS: At Utah on Thursday night. That's nothing new. Neither is James leading his team to a victory over the Suns. TJ Warren finished with 19 points and 10 boards and Josh Jackson contributed 19 points.James finished shooting 7-of-14 from the field and 13-of-15 at the foul line. Totals 38-98 25-30 107. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 104.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 47.3 percent shooting.
