Pacers vs Lakers Quarter 4

Make it 7 straight points for LeBron here. Indy managed to counter 2 of the buckets, though, so LAL’s lead is 118-113 with 1:30 left.

LeBron hit a 3 at the 2:40 mark to put LAL up 114-108, then added a leaning floater for a personal 5-0 run.

Indy has scored off 3 straight Lakers turnovers to trim the margin to 7 at 111-104 with 4:07 to play.

Indy has scored off 3 straight Lakers turnovers to trim the margin to 7 at 111-104 with 4:07 to play.

LeBron’s back in alongside AD, Harrell, Kuzma, and THT here with 5:30 to play.

He has 17 points, 8 assists, and 5 boards in his 23 minutes thus far.

Much better stretch from LAL’s bench plus Schroder to start the 4th Q, led by Kuzma, who converted a driving runner, then a 3 to make it a 104-90 lead, LAL’s biggest, at the 10:03 mark.

Pacers vs Lakers Quarter 3

Anthony Davis has 10 free throw attempts today through three quarters.

The Lakers are 22-4 in the last two seasons when he attempts 10 FT’s.

Shows you something about how hard they are to beat when he’s extra aggressive.

A 5-0 run from Caldwell Pope has LAL up 86-75, their biggest lead thus far, with 4:49 left in the 3rd Q.

LeBron and AD are both 8 for 14 from the field, and Davis is 9 of 10 at the FT line to give him a game-high 26 points in 25 minutes.

Pacers vs Lakers Quarter 2

LAL’s starters were effective in both stints, while the bench had a subpar stretch as LAL take a 64-56 lead into the half.

Davis (22P, 8R), Drummond (9P, 9R) and KCP were all +13, and LeBron (11P, 5A, 4R) +8
McLemore/Harrell/Matthews were all -5.

This LAL 2nd group isn’t likely to be seen much in a game that matters for defensive reasons.

LAL is holding Alex Caruso – a huge defensive key to this lineup – out today. He would replace either McLemore or THT. And Gasol could replace Harrell in certain matchups.

Indiana gives up the most points in the paint in the NBA, and Frank Vogel has deployed Montrezl Harrell against their second unit, for 6 points at the rim already in his 6 minutes on 3 of 3 FG’s.

LAL’s 2nd unit defense hasn’t been as crisp, however, as they lead 40-36.

LeBron looked good early in his return, with 4 points and 5 assists in his 7 minutes, and then AD dominated the final 5 minutes of the quarter, scoring 13 of his 17 points, his most in the 1st Q this season.

LAL lead 36-28.

Pacers vs Lakers Quarter 1

With LeBron getting his first rest, AD has gotten more aggressive, and just scored twice in the paint to put LAL up 25-17. Davis has 8 point with 3 boards early.

LeBron’s got 5 assists already, his most recent for THT’s 3 to make it 18-12 LAL.

LBJ got up pretty high for that Hammer as Schroder tossed the oop backward in transition for a streaking LeBron.

Perhaps some overpassing early in this the 2nd game the LAL starting lineup has played together as they search for a rhythm. They’ve had plenty of wide-open shots.

LeBron’s already found both Drummond and AD for alley-oops as LAL lead 10-9.

LeBron’s been active early, already with an offensive rebound, a near-miss on a lefty layup, and a made step-back jumper as the Lakers scratch first at Indiana.

Pacers vs Lakers Pre-Game Updates and Starting 5

While the Lakers are healthy all of a sudden, today’s opponent, Indiana, is not.

Pacers are without Sabonis, Aaron Holiday, Turner, Brogdon, Sumner and Lamb (and Warren, who’s been out since January). Caris LeVert was a game-time decision, and he will start.

Vogel has had members of his staff preparing for various options:
– Get 6 seed (LAL win 2, POR loses 1) and face DEN in Round 1
– Get 7 seed (LAL lose 1 or POR wins 1) by winning first play-in game, face PHX or UTA
– Get 8 seed (lose first play-in game, win 2nd), face UTA or PHX

Vogel on Dennis Schroder’s ability to get back on the floor so quickly after a two-week absence for health & safety protocols. “I think his readjustment curve is going to be on the lesser end of some of the other cases we’ve seen around the league.

As expected, Anthony Davis will also play today. He missed the last game with a sore adductor, but Vogel said they held him out of the Houston game more due to it being the 2nd night of a back-to-back. He’s good to go.

LeBron won’t have a minutes restriction today, but they’ll simply “be responsible.” They also haven’t decided if he’ll play in the regular-season finale tomorrow (at NOP).

Ditto for Dennis Schroder.

Alex Caruso will probably be available, but Vogel may hold him out to get him some extra time with the foot.

LeBron James will return to the court today at Indiana.

Dennis Schroder, too.

Pacers coach Nate Bjorkgren said Caris Levert and Domantis Sabonis will go through warm-ups and their status for IND vs. LAL will be determined afterward.

LeVert missed the last game with a sore knee and Sabonis left early with a quad issue. Malcolm Brogdon remains out.
