James lifts Lakers in win over Bulls

Los Angeles Lakers Chicago Bulls Preview

The same can be said of their opponent tonight, as they are on the road against the Chicago Bulls.

In their last matchup on January 15, the Lakers won 107-100. Facing the Lakers on March 12 at the United Center is the Chicago Bulls, also one of the NBA's most storied franchises, who will be looking to shut down those playoff hopes once and for all.

The Lakers' season may be headed to an unfortunate end but it hasn't stopped LeBron James from putting on a show.

So, Lakers ended their five-game losing streak in Chicago as the Western Conference team earned their last win against New Orleans Pelicans on February 28 in Los Angeles.

But, while coach Luke Walton feels that their raft of injuries have led to "where we are at as a group", he still wants his players to give their all until the regular season concludes, adding: "It's our job to continue to come out and give everything we can to get better, to win the games we do have left".

The Lakers, who trailed by as many as 20 early in the second quarter, went ahead for the first time since making the first basket of the game when Kuzma put in a layup for a 66-64 lead with 8:48 left in the third quarter.

Julius Randle scored 23 points and Anthony Davis had 21 points and 12 rebounds.

Then something finally start to click for the Lakers.

James said that Tuesday's game - relatively meaningless, as it was against a Bulls team that came into the night 30 games under.500 - was a testament to his overall approach to the game.

PG: Kris Dunn SG: Zach LaVine SF: Otto Porter Jr. Lopez was Bulls' top scorer against Lakers in the game.

LaVine scored 24 points in Friday's 112-104 home loss against the Pistons but he missed Sunday's rematch in Detroit. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure".

After a solid start in which they jumped to a 36-16 advantage in the second quarter, Chicago's shooters went cold while Los Angeles unleashed a 43-point third quarter run after outscoring the Bulls in the second quarter, 39-26. Six Bulls notched double-figures as well, led by Lauri Markkanen's 17 points.
