LeBron James Not Fazed By Franchise-Worst First Quarter Vs. Raptors

The Raptors push their lead to as many as 31 points in the first half, but the Lakers fight back in the second half.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith suggested a major trade for the Lakers this morning. If there was a mercy rule in basketball the Lakers would have exercised it in the first.

The Lakers suffered a 121-107 home loss, despite their opponents being without injured star man Kawhi Leonard. At the point of attack we allowed them to get where they wanted to go however they wanted to go to start the game.

Lakers president Magic Johnson met with Walton last Tuesday about the team's slow start, but Johnson told the Los Angeles Times the discussion had nothing to do with Walton's job security and he'll finish the season as the team's coach "unless something drastic happens, which it won't".

"It's going to be very, very hard to make a game out of that when you're trying to expend so much energy trying to get back in it".

"If teams are going to play small like that and they're gonna switch, then we can send him inside and he can either hurt them with the deep catch post-up, or hurt them on the glass", Nurse said.

For James, playing in the Lakers' Sunday whites for the first time, it was a reminder of a dark day in his final season with the Miami Heat when his team also was outscored by 25, 43-18, in the first quarter on January 15, 2014.

"You still learn from it", James said. To put that in perspective, Philadelphia led the National Basketball Association in turnovers last season with 16.3 per game.

Toronto took a 71-49 lead into halftime. "It was good for us to come into one of the most hostile buildings in the Western Conference and win". But you never let the outside noise get to you and if you do that, that can cause you problems.
