Patrick Beverley Gets Revenge Over Lakers

Beverley and the Bulls spoiled a long-awaited return by LeBron James after he missed 13 games for the Lakers. LeBron came off the bench for LA, scoring a team-high 19 points, and adding eight rebounds.

He missed time after suffering a tendon injury in his right foot. LeBron avoided surgery, which he said in the postgame interviews was a decision made after consulting with the “LeBron James” of surgeons.

After Sunday’s game, who knows if that was meant as a compliment …


All eyes were on the effect that LeBron would have on a Lakers team that was trending in the right direction without him. Without James, the Lakers went 8-5 and appeared in good standing for a play-in spot.

Now the Lakers have to hope that LeBron’s addition won’t sabotage their season as other teams in the West battle for the play-in tournament.
